You're right, it wouldn't work anywhere. And what you're saying isn't cynical, it's what would actually happen. Society would fall apart. Democratically elected governments will never ever be popular but it's the only system that works.

Libertarinism works for the haves. Things for the have-nots would be even worse than they are now. You'd want to be damn sure you have it in you to make it to the top to want to see a libertarian system in place.

The software on the small laptop in the photo is SAM Broadcaster. That's what we use for streaming to our SHOUTcast server and recording everything.

When I'm recording stuff for myself (like when I'm making adverts or what have you) I use Audacity, because I couldn't afford Audition and got really used to Audacity and it does all I want/need it to do for now.
Though I've got access to Audition now so I'll be trying to transition to that just so I can throw it down on the CV.

I always found Audacity a bit barren, but it's very versatile for what it is all the same. Have a look at Mixcraft - it's a cheapish solution that you can really push to the limit.

All must bring sacrifices to the altar of Creative Suite, The RAM Eater.
