My. It's been so long since I've posted here that Blogger has changed entirely since my last visit.
I've not been ignoring music... I am quietly honing skills, synths, and patch-libraries behind the scenes. In the news: I updated Largo from 1.0 to 1.5 (it's awesome), I bought Gladiator (it's quite good), and I bought Sylenth1 (also awesome). I ditched Morphine and SynthMaster. And I've spent a whole lot of time re-learning my scales (useful) and organizing/editing my patches.
For now, that's all. No music written, really, other than the equivalent of "thumbnail sketches" (of which I've done quite a bit). But it sure feels like music is coming.
