Loading up the Libretto


Late last night I started loading up some of the software I’ve found. The most useful I’ve found so far are:

  • Goldwave: A bit like a very early version of Audacity
  • Octomed Studio: Tracker Application
  • Cubase Audio Lite
  • CreateFX

I think I’d like to keep searching for more apps as the ones I’ve added so far haven’t taken up much space at all. My current plan for the Libretto is to use it as a sort of hub between my handheld devices (Palm T3, Jornada and Zoom PS04). So that I can move files from each of the handheld devices using the Libretto.

The other main use for the libretto will be sound editing and manipulation. That’s where goldwave comes in.

I’ll need to do lots more testing, but so far I am quite enthusiastic that the Libretto will form a useful part of my mobile studio.

Libretto 70CT


For a few years I’ve had this little device. It is not much bigger than a video cassette. It has a 1.5 gb hard drive, and 32mb of RAM. It only runs Windows 95, and won’t run anything higher, and it has no USB.

So, what should I do with it? This is the question that constantly vexes me. I could sell it on eBay, but I’d be lucky to get more that £40 for it. I could give it away, but no one wants something this limited. I couldn’t dump it, that’s just wrong.

So, my remaining option is to use it. But how? I don’t really want to go through the pain of installing another OS on it. I’d like to find some decent Windows 95 software to run on it and make it useful.

I’d love this to be a part of my constantly evolving mobile studio. But, as of now, I’m not sure how to make that happen.

If you’re reading this and have any thoughts on it, please do let me know.
