Thanks for the words. I never smoked in the house, van, car, etc. I always went outside, so they only 2nd hand people ever got was from my clothes!
And as far as recording, use what ya got, do your best, and have fun with it! I also use the Kristal Audio Engine for a DAW, Audacity and SoundEngine for editing, the Kajerhus Classic, GlaceVerb and a few other VST plugins. Total cost....FREE! Check my tunes out, the biggest paid for piece of software was OMB 7.1. Just do it and have a blast!
