Thanks for your response to the questionnaire, and welcome aboard. I've been a fond CBC Radio 1 listener for twenty years or more, and have been amazed at the sound production!
Is Dallett open source or commercial software? What are musical stingers and bumper music? You mentioned having used a grease pencil to help in editing reel-to-reel tape, what level of eyesight do you currently have?

My name is Bob Seed. I've been involved in the broadcast industry for over thirty years having worked for private broadcasters as well as the CBC. It goes without saying that most of my recording and editing work has been with open reel tape using a grease pencil and a razor blade as tools of the trade. When my coworkers wanted fine editing done on their project they would bring their master tape to me, as they knew that I could edit out just about anything from their work of art. Just about the time that I was to retire a new form of sound editing was introduced. The computer based program is called Dallett. It looks and performs much like Audacity. I am looking forward to working with the program and perhaps come up with a few audio gems. My specialty is producing short musical stingers and bumper music.
