of course you have checked de md5 of the cd, and you recorded with low
velocity... so another approach:

try to install Fluxbuntu (or the more friendly xubuntu) and then the studio
metapackages from the web ;-)

and your machine to do authoring won't do. But there are a lot of cool sound
applications (not to speak of the csound difficult as hell but light sound

linux is very cool for old computers if you use a light windows manager like
fluxbox, xfce, icewm

where are two sound distros for old computer: dynebolic and musix
