    I sold my old Presonus Audiobox today. It has taken me about a week and it's been a bit of a pain to sell because people do know "it's a thing to make music with a computer" but are also not well versed in precise functioning of the device. Therefore, I end up asking questions and discussing with people so that I make sure they will be able to use it. The amount of effort vs. the amount of money I made is out of balance but....it's essential that I GET THINGS THAT ARE NOT IN USE OUT OF MY HOUSE. If I keep at it, I remember to keep at it and they won't have to search for my body among stacks of gear when I die.

    (This post was intended to be positive sounding but I cannot help but take some artistic license.)

    I'm selling an amp on the local Craigslist now and part of the description is "2 footswitchable dirty channels: Crunch and Full Burn"...
    I've now had 3 inquiries asking if it has a clean channel. o_O

    It's a joke! The PERIOD OR FULL STOP! It's a metaphor for minimalism... It's not worth the money but it's absolutely essential! :p

    I had plenty of trouble each time I got an intetface or changed computers or changed DAW. I understand it's not always easy....but I didn't want to have someone angry at me trying to return so I had to discuss.
