I now formally retract all of my vitriolic spewing about the MOTU Symphonic Instrument plug-in—save one. Some of the sounds are lousy.

I received an email from SONAR’s (my recording software) tech support today. They informed me that many people using VST plug-ins are having the same problem I’m having. They offered a solution which involved some .ini tweaks, and Voila, dinner is served. Happy emoticons for everyone.

‘Going to Memphis’ is now overdubbed and mixed to my liking. Tomorrow I will begin work on getting it mastered. Stay tuned.
