At last something good to report. Over the last couple of nights the Cubase/Rewire/FL situation became stable enough for me to record a fingerpad drum track for 'Started a Fire' and then edit the guitars. The basic idea is voice floating atop a fairly swampy/soupy mix of lots of guitar tracks, none individually reaching for attention. It's now ready for mixing. Two songs down!
Mr Fingers Farrell came round with some videos from Friday's gig, and I will lean heavily on his wise advice when it comes to the later stages of this project.
