    Thanks very much for the kind words, Keith. Much appreciated. Mum is not great but she's a fighter and dragging along.

    I noticed you mentioned something about getting a Zoom H1n, and wanted to let you know that a new model came out and was shown at the Winter NAMM 2018 trade show.

    If you had not bought one yet, this new model might be better, since it adds a LIMITER function which will help with setting mic input level and tames the signal so you do not get overload or distortion in your recording.

    see here: https://www.zoom-na.com/products/fie...handy-recorder

    I have the older model that lacks this feature, but this would be very useful for our style of recordings, because the limiter helps tame the volume spikes (like from vigorous strumming) and keeps the sound more even. It is kind of like training wheels for learning about mic placement and how to set levels without overload.

    Anyway...glad you seem to be doing well brother

    Yea, Apple seems to be going off the rails lately with software quality. I'm still on Sierra on my Mac, but Garageband and iMovie both have serious problems lately - updates schmupdates!!!, and I've not monkeyed with anything since a fresh install of Sierra last May.

    Thankfully I have full clone backups via 'Carbon Copy Cloner', and because I simply lack the time and patience to troubleshoot these issues -- Instead I'm going to wipe the drive, and do a fresh install of everything and then copy my home folder over from the backups, which sounds like a lot, but is much less effort than going down the rabbit hole and trying to fix things.

    Moral of the story is that we should ALWAYS have a backup, somewhere, and for good measure a second backup just in case the first backup gets corrupted or becomes inaccessible....

    Linda, I'm very glad you were able to get back up and running and did not lose any files. It can be really heartbreaking when you lose something that you created and spent hours working on, an then to find 'poof' it's just gone...

    It was a toss up between the H1n & the H1, & I went with the H1.

    I still don't seem to want to do any recording just now, it's winter, & that does seem to put the mockers on things for me, but once things start to warm up again, who knows.

    The H1 is still a great piece of kit. Very simple to use. I must be getting old, since 'simple' appeals to me more and more each day.

    Good that you have one in hand, as it will be there when you are ready, just power it on and press record.

    Easy-peasy

    Well, because I learned the hard way and wised up because of your advice. This is the one time I was happy I did the icloud thing. I had my backup HD and Icloud to help out. I hadnt done a recent backup this month so icloud saved me on my vids.

    My iMovie and Garageband were both acting up so I did the typical restart only to get stuck on the white apple screen :/
    Getting the backups in play saved my butt!
