Hi Jack, (you're up early)

Yes, I'm using the Harrington Quadtone RIP, and it is a real jewel.

(alt-purists stop reading now... you've been warned!)

Reprinted some digital collage stuff from 1996 and these are the best
prints I ever produced - better than the toned silver, argyrotype, or
c-prints I've made in the past. With just the simple selection of a
'sepia' profile, I got nice (antique) warm hues and dense, deep
blacks. Using Hannemuhle Photo Rag... just lovely stuff, IMHO. I'm
trashing earlier prints (maybe I'll donate them to those pesky
auction/fundraiser thingys).

cheers

Darryl

All I can say Darryl is: "Congratulations, that mechanical beast is a
beauty." One thing though,
and this seems to be a peculiarity to be reconciled by a driver
update,
is that if you wish to print
b/w one of the finest products is Roy Harrington's QuadTone RIP. When
using that, for some reason,
the 4000 does not produce as dense a black as the 2200 or 76-9600. Odd

I think but anyway, with
that RIP, you can adjust the amount of black laid down.
