    I don't have time to use it day to day (wish I did :) but I have
used it to record three different band demos, a handful of original
songs, and I have two more band demos lined up.  I've also got a friend
of mine pretty much convinced to rebuild his studio and use
Linux/JACK/Ardour/JAMin.  I'd definitely buy a book.
