Re: Forum software upgrade

I only need to enter the credentials on my phone (Samsung Note 4), but on my IOS devices (iPad) and PC, it keeps the cookies and no logins needed each time.

Re: Recording software

Wow, I have CS6 (cheap through my university) which I use mainly for Photoshop, and occasionally for DreamWeaver, and didn't realize I have Audition. It looks impressive. More exciting stuff to learn! Thanks for the hint. And as I have an Apple I of course also have Garageband but it did not give m...

I have some USB midi devices that can send many different MIDI controller messages including modulation and pitch bend. Once I get more familiar with the 4x, I will have to try them. Can't the 4x do after-touc...
