  • IBM ThinkPad T30 with Windows XP for WaveLab 4.0 program.

Remark: I do not like to use higher version of Wave Lab however I have WaveLab 8 Essentials for use in my recording studio by other professionals. For me in higher versions there is intentionally limited functionality compared to that provided in my opinion in best of all version 4.0. Software has been developed into what is not essential for me. Its functionality is not clear now what is what and where to find what. Too much digital audio processing technology and too many single new options but basic elements look like missing at first sight what I find confusing and demotivating enough to use older version of program for basic operations. Even if it requires me to use Windows XP operating system. But I like old IBM laptops before Lenovo brand generation. They even smell differently and old IBM laptops are my vintage passion.
