This made me curious as it was a thousand years ago I messed with it, so I didn't recall...so I was hopeful I might squeeze out a lil extra bit somewhere somehow (for now anyway). But, I see that on batt my min is 5% and max is 100% and plugged in (I'm usually plugged in, especially when working on music junk) is both min and max 100% so...yeah, I already tweaked that long ago. Oh, well.
It's weird. Over all these years I've tweaked and turned off and gotten rid of and...everything... and yet I still
cannot help this odd feeling there has to be something
else I can get rid of or shut down. But, jeeze...when you've even gone to the point of getting rid of anti-virus....! I mean, dang...what else?!?
I'm sure it doesn't help that while I'm totally comfy with opening up and cleaning out a desktop, even after watching a number of vids concerning such, I've never ever opened up this laptop and given it a solid cleaning. It's just far too fussy and involved for the likes of me.
Aaannnd then there I am, watching vids of folks making full tracks with just and only, say, a Juno 106 and using "a little bit of reverb and delay" and/or using an older tablet or phone and some lil all-in-one studio like Caustic 3 and making great sounding complete stuff and I'm all: "Why am I bothering with this stuff?!? We ALL have, for free
, far more at our finger-tips than Numan had for his first couple of solo albums!"
Sheesh. Gimmie just the ability to make simple, z-grade 80s sci-fi score kinda stuff without bouncing this or that and I'm pretty well satisfied. lol
Ah, the agony and the ecstasy. Heh.
This calls for another Rum & Coke (as usual).
