Yeah that is definitely one option. But ten more years of working 60 hour weeks with no time for music seems like a long time at the moment! You could stick it as long as you can, save money, get the family secure, then when it all gets too much go AWOL. Or you could try negotiating a reducion in h...

Re: Who has dared to follow their Ableton passion?

...or go for it now and go running back to the corporate job in 5 years if it doesn't work out. Are you sure? After 5 years out the corporate world might not be so keen on you (this is not a personal comment, just an observation of the way people who do the hiring think) dsu> some sound advice IMO

Re: Who has dared to follow their Ableton passion?

I work with governments in very conservative places, on projects involving their schools and young people, and I owe it to the people who are paying me to be the kind of person everyone feels comfortable with.

Re: Field Recorders

Mr Man> +1

I have a Yamha CX which is the model before the Yamaha C24. The battery life is great, one AA sized rechargable and I can get at least 20hrs recording.

It is really easy to use.
