I'm nothing but a weekend hack anymore (and less of that than I'd like).
I'm that way because I now hold down a regular day gig that provides the
money to buy said book! Hell, I'll buy, one for each room if it helps your
cause. :) And the ultimate end goal is not how often I use it but that
everything I do gets done in Ardour, espescially when Midi support or
inbuilt sequencer is a part of the show! Right now all multi track work I
do is in Ardour.
