Yes it worked. I have the CD ready now will be delivered. Thanks for the 
For importing the Zoom files, I do it in Audacity and if you look into 
the files for one project there are - sometimes - many files but also 
one file (per track) which holds all te data.
E. g. I record 2 piano's with 2 mike's (Rhode matched) and 2 lines ( as 
one is an electronic one at the moment) and I can mix all 4 tracks using 
audacity, or qtractor. Ardour is in my opinion such a large beast that 
for my simple requirements audacity is sufficient. I'm a complete newbie 
in the field of audio mixing and - as yet - don't understand all the 
advanced tools for compressing, filtering, etc. but I'm learning with 
trial & error!.
Don't forget: the most important man/woman is the performer, not the 
sound-engineer! (of course I'm a musician).
