    wasatch 6.6 printer setup

    Hello,
    I'm a newby with wasatch, so, since a few days, I have expirimented a lot with it, and have some questions, for which I hope some support of you guys.
    I have an Epson pro 9800 with photoblack.
    I'm an artist and felt completely satisfied with my prints:
    I developped a standard and ( almost)always used the same paper and used the drivers and paper coming with the printer.
    Now I'm not so convinced about this strategy anymore, and did some expiriments with paper I did prepare myself,and I did download some icc profiles (mainly for Vinyl, since the substrate is very smooth) which where close to wat I thought I needed.
    Because I could'nt finetune the results ( inks dripping, too much magenta, so the urge to reduce ink per colorchannel etc), there was suddenly an urge to work with colormanagment;
    so now there is Wasatch, the need to make or change icc profiles, a densitometer etc.
    till now, i do understand most of it, but it is a bit more complicated than I thought..
    One of the Questions is:
    Before Wasatch ,I had the effects I wanted by low DPI in printerdriver:
    720x360,and did reduce ink by 17% and had maximum drying time..( prints are 3372x4921 ppi)
    I can't reproduce this in Wasatch!
    Does anyone have some suggestions here( ebooks about this theme etc )?
    Would appriciate it...

    Having a satisfying result in wasatch demands time and other things like a profile maker software, a spectrophotometer (i1)...
    It you start from the scratch I would not recommend you wasatch...
    Wasatch is very powerful but is more adapted for skilled people
    Some simple, even free software would better fit your needs I think...
