Thanks. You can tell I have too much free time on my hands. Hah. I have Guitar Rig 4 but I've heard nothing but great things about 5. I like to skip a version or two before I upgrade stuff but they sure are taking a long time on that one. I've liked your mixes so far. Audacity is a good program. Don't know if you've ever heard of Reaper but it's a good one too and a little more advanced. It's 'technically' not free, but dirt cheap and remains fully functional forever even in demo mode. I'm really looking forward to the Feb backing tracks. I can't believe January is gone already. Time sure seems to move faster the older you get.
