Just a follow-up...we had a guest artist from out of country do a session here with us on our 1680 (actually, the spare 1680 after the HD conked but that's another story) and the VirDis worked perfectly. We recorded to the IDE drive, backed up to VirDis, and then exported wav files, loaded those into Reaper and rendered mp3s for emails to all parties...
So, thanks Dan (Uptildawn) and Bill and everybody!
I've licensed the updated version and will be installing in a couple weeks when my nephew Ben arrives, and also when I can have a few hours of downtime to examine the new goodies!
Using VS 1680 23 years now and counting!
