As a matter of interest I have been taking alternate FC releases into 
production. Currently I'm using FC5, the previous was FC3. I plan to 
skip FC6 for audio use and take FC7. It just changes too fast for me to 
have the time to keep the studio technically together as well as making 
some good music. Is that a scheme that would suit other CCRMA users?
