Thanks for the swift replys.
I tried that Russ but the slow down was so erratic I had to give that a miss. It was till worth a try.
I've just downloaded Cooledit and Pacemaker and will give them a try later, they sound promising.
Guest thanks for the advice but I think I've been around here long enough in one guise or another to make my own BS decisions. These 'catters, KatLaughing, CatsPaw, and Sorchi, 53, etc have over the years posted enough music to give them the right to post as much chat as they like.
