Additional notes

Started recording with a Tascam 4-track about 13 years ago and went completely digital about 8 years ago. I used to enjoy using Logic until Apple scooped them up. Now I just use Cubase. I am not a DAW purist. I will use whatever I am given to work with and will generally work on multiple genres for my own sake. Money is not exactly expected but it would be nice to make a living doing this.
