thanks, Allene, with luck the new book will help as many people all over the world as the old one did.

Larry, these very subjects are explained in the book, maybe a new thread would be a better place to discuss rather than Thomas's thread?

In short:
1 No, because you can copy the whole disk to SD in one pass.
2 Yes, but the SD card has many more Technics play options than before.
3 Yes, but you can load midi as technics, use the far superior range of nx sounds, save as a technics midi and still use the console if you so wish only with nx sound.

p.s. you can get Alec's book soon
