So my studio upgrade is for the most part complete. The only things missing are a new FireWire audio interface and a decent studio mic compliment. While the old keyboard gear will still be used as an interface for the East West libraries it's function will be limited to only a MIDI trigger function (for as long as it still operates). It's nice having programs that are current and up to date. Adios 20 year old sequencer. Hello Logic Pro. So long old friends... we had some good times in the last 12 years. Here's to the next 12 years.

In this whole new journey of self discovery, or better put, self rediscovery I'm finding my talents again. It's not often where I think spending large sums of money can equate to any sort of happiness but I've found the exception to the usual rule that you cannot buy happiness.
It's been a strange blessing of sorts getting the new computer. It started as just a need because the old one was dying and something would have to be done to save the work on it before it gave out altogether. I usually sell myself short and not get top of the line stuff, but this time it was different. I wanted something I could grow into on some level which meant I couldn't be cheap this time around. I sought out what it would take to do the things I want on it and found what would meet those needs. Actually I thought it was a very mature choice, despite the cost.
With that newness comes all new software to learn and a simple yet exciting opportunity to rediscover. I now have a machine that can keep up with my creative abilities. Something my last computer did minimally and with great frustration. It is so easy now to record a musical idea, or assemble a video and put it on youtube. How awesome it is to be creative!
