Finished recording vocals for the Brokegrove Lads tunes this past Sunday, after which I retired my ancient computer from service. Regardless of the various hardware and software "gremlins", I kept it in use to help expedite the recording project, as I had surmised that it would take a bit of time for me to become acquainted with the new audio and video programmes. Old dog/new tricks, etc. etc. ... The new rig seems to be working quite well, and I have begun the process of familiarizing myself with the newfangled (well... to me, at least) editors (ACID Music Studio 10, WaveLab Elements 8, and Lightworks 11.5). Fingers crossed.
