Thank you Jeff.
Apols for my belated response. I've been very busy investigating your suggestions, particularly in trialing Black Friday deals to determine which before they end.
Meat 'n taters stuff I was wanting, still being digested.
[br]Still favouring PreSonus Artist as DAW, especially at its Black friday promo price.
BIAS FX2 though different from what I was wanting is a fabulous toolbox, also currently an incredible deal, down even more to just USD$39 for the Standard ver.
But wait, there's more....
Will return with more deserved response shortly.
