I've been part of the beta crew for a few months...I just wanted to state that this lil' wonder makes an excellent jamming partner...not that the other SB's don't, but I've really taken to throwing some hot blues on and, as we say in the Great White North (and elsewhere, I'm sure) "givin 'er".

Can't say enough about it.

The mono thing won't bother you as much as you might think. I thought that it would, but the WORST case scenario is that you might pick up elements in a mix that you never noticed before.

If it REALLY bothers ya, well...get a Boom!! :)

Best for practicing, though, is a PC through a stereo. SqueezeCenter and Squeezebox's fwd/rwd ability sucks for any kind of precision queuing.

...depends on your method... I throw on the Clapton and compete...forget video games that simulate the real deal...LOL

For hardcore learning such as you describe...ProTools...(overkill, sure, but I use it anyhow, so why not?)

Way too expensive for my tastes. I used Cakewalk Sonar for this, and now
use Audacity.

A Contour shuttlepro's jog wheel is wonderful to control the playback,

...as in the piece of medical equipment that I just Googled? Very cool useage if so!

Also, re: Audacity...nothing wrong with it :) (I'm running an archaic PT system anyhow)
