Here are my thoughts...... the question I would ask myself is, if everything is working fine as is, why would I want to update to 8.1? Now, if a person were using their computer for stuff other than DJ use (like internet browsing, video/photo editing, emailing, playing online games), then the update might be beneficial as per MS's recommendations.... but if a person is using their comp solely for DJ use (which is what I have always suggested/recommended to make sure a person doesn't run into any unexpected "problems"), imo there would be no real need to update.

(see what I'm trying to say here?)



Anyway, if your really want to update, set a new restore point first, DL and then install the new update, and then test it with your system (because each system out there can have many variables that are not the same across the board, so what might work fine for one person's system may be a huge headache for someone else's). Just make sure all the dj stuff/settings have not changed/reset during the update process (check and double check), and then do some testing with your setup. If things are good to go, leave things as is. If things are not right i any way, do a system restore to before the update. Then check and double check that your dj settings are the same as before the update. Simple.

I dont foresee any problems with our gear or apps if you upgrade.
