for those that have known me since ...well the beginning of c9? my brother has been on XP.

NO more

... friggin 12 years over.  hes gone to 64 bit / win8 / new machine / solid state / quiet power supply, 32 gb ram not 3... etc etc

 

he loves it.  not that i didnt tell him to upgrade for over a decade... apparently it was this one program giga sampler - that was great but went out of business and wouldnt load past xp (properly). many in the pc music world still held on to it.. but finally there is some new (forget name) sampler out (has a K in it?) 

but that was the trick.  One app - 12 years of SLOWWW  OVER!
