My New Laptop System and Live Sound Clips

Well, I finally got around to playing a gig with the lion's share of my
prior rack setup replaced with the laptop computer and VST effects.
Below is a link to an avant-garde, free style improvisational piece
(Track 2) recorded live on June 2. I wasn't yet comfortable with all the
VST effects I had at my disposal, so I'm trying out a lot of presets on
this particular tune.  The other 3 tunes are fine too, if you are
interested in downloading them.

I do tentatively plan to replace, though not permanently, the EDPs with
Mobius eventually, but I can't run my VST host and plethora of VST
effects at the same time as Mobius...way to much processing required. My
plan is to buy another laptop and run just mobius on that system. 

New soundclips: http://www.savefile.com/projects/830188 (see track #2
for the most experimental piece)

Krispen Hartung - Acoustic Guitar, real-time looping
Vincent Miresse - Didgeridoo, dumbek, singing bowl, bells, rainstick,
udu, etc
