    Heh, remember the Jim Allchin interview where he told us he played guitar? Well, he sent over a couple of samples. They are WMA format, recorded at a fairly low sample rate (48khz). Enjoy! He's pretty good. Recorded on a Windows XP machine, of course.

    Hey, he's really good!

    Jim should have played at the WinHEC party or at the Jam Sessions at TechEd, maybe he'll rock the PDC!

    Jim could give up the day job with those dirty riffs!

    (shhh Dave we don't want him to do that - Scoble)

    Not bad at all Smiley Like the slowdown section in Roadhouse and then the kick back to jamming again.

    Do you know if he can read normal music charts?  If he does I can hook him up with the folks here up the I5 and BC99 for some work... Smiley

    I suppose he did the composition and arrangement as well.

    A video visit to his music studio would be cool.  If you can promise a live jam session at PDC I am registering right now!  Smiley

    I can't listen wma-format. Can you convert it to OGG Vorbis so everyone can listen them.. ?

    It's really nice! Will it become longhorn's new star up melody?

    If I told him I liked it, and made it sound sincere. Do you think he'd spill on Longhorn?

    I'd like to listen to this, but I lost sound on Windows Media Player v10.00.00.3802, either when I installed iTunes or upgraded to XP SP2.  Other apps play music ok.  Has anyone has got any pointers as to what I could try? 

    Sound Card is SoundMax Digital Audio v5.10
    Motherboard is Asus K8VSE
    Win XP2 patched yesterday

    I was going to ask the same question myself, although it would be a very, very, very long start up sound.

    Did Jim do the Startup sound for Windows 98? Smiley
