For now, a techno sob story. I received email from Mira with her text, and I fired up ProTools so I could import it and then lay down my horn track. And then I spent a full hour trying to get ProTools to fire up. There is some magical combination of settings in Hardware, Playback Engine, Peripherals, I/O Engine, and a few others that I apparently have yet to figure out, because every so often my ProTools just goes haywire, and it takes an hour of deleting preferences, restarting, and fiddling with preferences to get it working again.
Last night was not my night, though. An hour later, it still wasn’t firing up. It was 1am. I gave up and went to bed, deciding that Mira’s voice was great plenty.
