so apparently Audacity thought it would be cool to just delete some of my bass recordings for Ectype. what a jerk. and of course I decided not to bring my bass with me for whatever reason. I could record using another bass but nobody here owns a 5-string (what is the world coming to?). of course this might have something to do with having no space on my hard drive, but regardless, I need to re-record stuff. friggin computers.
