    Are you working on the same version you were before?

    It happened to me with propellerhead's reason, i am not a musician, and when they made the switch to a more robust interface intended for more complicated sequencing I stopped using it. Eventually i went back to an older version where i felt comfortable.
    acket.

    It is a new version, but the differences are not significant enough to be the problem. I simply forgot how to use it effectively.

    It doesn't help that the character build for the main character has 1600 elements! Seriously, WTF? That is waaaaay more complex than is necessary. A couple of hundred elements is too much, in my opinion.

    My daughter wants to get a drawing pad/tablet for drawing on her computer. Does anyone have any suggestions on easy-to-learn, beginner-level programs I can get her, to help her learn how to draw on a device?

    This is what I could find on Amazon...

    Or maybe I should start her off with some free software, to find out what she likes first...

    Are these disc stylus's any good? It seems odd to try drawing with a disc instead of just the tip. But, it sounds like a lot of people like them, from the reviews.

    I use free software when I can. GIMP is the best free Photoshop-like software out there. I use it quite a bit. The other free suggestions look interesting too. I have tried Inkscape (Illustrator-like), and it's fine, but I use an old version of Flash for vector-based drawing. If you buy a Wacom tablet, I'm pretty sure they come with a stylus. I think the aftermarket styluses are for drawing on mobile devices.

    Thanks! Free is always preferable.

    Wacom is the go-to brand for graphic tablets, I take it?

    Yes. There are more economical options out there though. In my biz, Wacom is the industry standard.

    Do you still have the box? It's for a Xmas present. Is it cheaper than this one?

    We don't have the box--it was a hand-me-down from my Dad.

    Free is cheaper than $68, yes.
    Whoomah!
