Almost have all the pieces

My copy of Final Cut Express HD arrived today. Why didn't I order the pro version? Because Express is one thousand dollars less than the pro version - that's why.

The Mac won't be arriving until tomorrow, so I opened the Final Cut box to see what's inside. There were four discs.

Four discs?

Disc 1: Install disc.

Disc 2 and 3: "LiveType Data". I don't know what this is. Sounds important, I guess.

Disc 4: Apple Loops for Soundtrack. Soundtrack? What's this?

I perused through the manuals and there's a whole big book on Soundtrack for Mac. If this is a multitrack audio recording program (which it might be), I might be using this instead of using Adobe Audition 1.5 on the PC for my new music release. I don't know whether it will have the same capability as Audition but I might as well give it a shot. Could be worth something...

I was originally a little hesitant to order anything labeled "Express" because in the PC world, express means "watered down piece of crap", but this is definitely not the case with FCE HD. It came with full documentation and there wasn't anything cheesy about it. I'm hoping the software is as good as the package it came in.


On a completely unrelated note, I may be changing around the site template again.
