Re: Low Lantecy Soundcard for Laptop Gig

PS You can send that Indigo back to Echo for a replacement. They've sent
me a replacement twice now, both free (although the second time they
charged me for the shipping).

Wow, I hear that! ! !

I've never run into those problems. Then again, I've never worked with
large PAs or big stages! I like to close my eyes, caress my keys and have
that feeling that the sound is right there, intimate, in front of me.

Interesting to hear the range of places people make music in.

I just came back from a wilderness trip to a volcanic glacial area. I was
singing with the glacier. Talk about an audience Most Sublime!


Hope You're Well,
