Technical Details of the Project

Hard Disk

For the techies interested in the details of the making of "You Are an Angel", here they are! (I know, I know! This is mostly relatively old software and budget hardware, but it's what I (Jeff Anvinson) can afford. That's why you have to boost sales by telling your friends and family to buy the recording! ;-) )
