Future plans/projects

I have updated my software to include most of the current platforms which include : cubase SX,cubase Vst 32, Logic audio platinum, sonar, proaudio 9, Nuendo 2.0, Halion,wavelab 4.0, acid pro 3. I can offer my clients a wide range of platforms to work with, which also makes my home studio compatible with many other studios. I also upgraded my Ram to 512 ,this allows for many more plugins to be available on projects. Nuendo is my main platform and it is solid as a rock I love working with it.
