It took me a while to get going this morning, but once I was up and mobile I actually managed to get a few things done on the new computer. The day was much better than yesterday, health-wise. Thanks for the well wishes.
I’m having to re-acquaint myself with Cakewalk Sonar X3’s MIDI entry and editing features. Yes, it’s been a while since I messed with it, and no, the new MIDI controller keyboard still isn’t hooked up (still waiting for the replacement USB cable). I’m back to the old-school way, entering a note at a time via the Piano Roll view and editing things via the Event List view. Slow going at first, especially when wrangling Sonar’s MIDI clips feature (I really miss Cakewalk 2.0 when it comes to copying and pasting), but my speed increased by the end of the day.
The computer continues to run without a hitch so far. I’ve had it running Prime95 overnight, and it handled last night’s assignment like a speed demon. I do have to lock the system at night while it runs, though—my cat still thinks that my desk is part of his domain, and he has been guilty of cat-like typing in the past.
Tomorrow’s schedule includes a visit to the doctor for blood tests (cholesterol, A1C, vitamin levels, liver functions, etc.), followed by more wrestling with Sonar X3. Wish me luck on both counts.
