Has anyone on here had any experience with this software? It has been recommended as an alternative to Windows Media Player. It is available as a free download. From what I understand, this is another Microsoft product, so I'm not sure if there would actually be a benefit. If I am going to deal with Microsoft in any case, I'd just as well put up with WMP, that I already know and somewhat understand.

Seems like I remember hearing about it. I don't remember ever using it unless it was years ago. I use Itunes on apple, and I think either the windows media player or realplayer on windows environment. The more I try new programs the more I like the older simpler programs. It use to be you downloaded a program and it worked great. Now days you try it, then you pay this big price only to realize its worse than you are trying to replace.

That's what concerns me as well. Sony has a music management program that is $300 and you need to be a sound engineer to run it. I believe I will just tinker with Media Player and try to get it back up running again.

I had gotten it about 10-12 years ago to work with Mp3 files. I found it to be redundant to WMP. I guess this info is redundant if your WMP is working all right now.

I processed eight LP's and so far, so good. I guess it must be fixed. I feel like an idiot going thru all the drama for a simple fix. If it happens again, I'll probably forget what I did to fix it...... Rolling Eyes

I have been running a set of Peavey 18" studio speakers, powered by my Pioneer SX-1050. The Peaveys were fairly industrial looking and my wife disliked them in the house. I sold those about a month ago to a local country band. They can use them to cause hearing damage in the local watering holes......

I am using a set of Fisher 15" three-way towers that my wife likes better. They sound pretty good, but they are not NEARLY as much fun as the Peaveys were..... affraid

Good idea! Now, where did I put that note?.....

Actually, I have a "note to self" document that I can't lose very easily. I put handy tips there for safekeeping. My wife knows where they are, too.

No notes is the guy giving you a fish. Notes are when you learn how to fish. Very Happy
