    Screwed my DAW up and basically made it a fancy MP3 player because that's all it could do. I had to update Reaper, re-scan my plugins and sign in to Two-Notes again to download my cab IR's. Windows 10 is a real PITA!

    I pause the updates for as long as it will allow me and push out further every couple of days. I dread seeing "update and shut down" and "update and Restart" in my power commands. Previously I got away with uninstalling the updates but this last one was a b***ch. It took me a wile to figure out how to get my DAW back.

    I've been meaning to work on a clip for the Country Ballad thread. Now that it's back I can get on that. This morning was my first change to get back on the horse. I added a lead line to a blues piece started by a drummer/keyboard layer and a bassist. Everything appears to be working.

    so what exactly are the benefits of windows 10?

    We all have code name Sun Valley, aka Windows 11 to look forward to later this year. It fixes all known and unknown problems with Windows 10. If you want you can sign up to be a beta tester too. It's got a new core that can interface with your smartphone ... what could go wrong?

    This is why I recommend a dedicated unit like a Tascam Digital PortaStudio or similar Zoom unit.

    I promised to buy myself one like 10 years ago… when I finally went in to a GC a few months ago to look at one, they don’t hardly stock them anymore… The technology has up and left without me.

    you can not work with this computer without internet?
    because then no (forced) updates could mess up your system.

    well, doing promises is not so dificult, but keeping them is.
    if a systemcheck give's a okay for win10, and with every major update you get troubles, then someone isn't doing there job right.
    not everyone is in the financial position to get a new computer every 3 years ore so.
    so i moved over to peppermint linux and having fun again with normal computer use.
    a friend of mine i made a computer that does not need to go on the internet but has some specific programs he likes and uses.
    transferring files with USB stick and your done
