What did you just buy yourself?

This forum is for anything not Reason related, if you just want to talk about other stuff. Please keep it friendly!

Technically I didn't buy it myself, my most awesome partner did (she is a designer and a big fan of TE, even has an original OP1).
So far I'm getting on with it far better than the OP1…been asked to review it for Recording Magazine, so more details to follow!

Is it EVER!

I initially had a similar response, but the thing is a BLAST to mess around with, just like the first time I booted up Reason and went to town.
After my initial dismissal I have come to enjoy this "toy" (aka: calculator) very much!

I just received my Panorama P4. This is an excellent controller. I REALLY like it! I got it on Amazon for $372.
My only problem is getting the Surface Locking settings to stay set. But I'll save that for another thread topic.

I also discovered that I can do my own mappings for REs that aren't currently mapped. That is really cool. I'll certainly explore doing non-Reason VSTs, etc.

For those who don't have one, you need one!

I bought a launchpad for ableton and a korg nano key(the other keyboard is too big to carry around with a laptop) . I also bought ABL3.
Planning to do live acid stuff.

I bought Carve EQ Ducker RE. I always passed on it because I thought it was just a dynamic EQ like Omega or DQ. But I realized it is basically TrackSpacer in RE format, and with my arrangements being pretty dense, this is a nice addition to my arsenal.

I just bought audio damages other desert cities. It won't replace the echo for standard delay tasks but for more weird granular and reverse delays and sound designing etc it is great.

Been looking at it for a while and it is currently on sale at plugin boutique so picked it up (along with the free polymax synth)

I've ordered a base Kindle:

Surprisingly, it will take until beginning of March to get here :shock:

Oh well, will continue to read paper books like a peasant until then, I guess... :oops:

I bought my second Udu drum. This particular model is called Udongo. It's a rather weird one but I like it. :puf_smile:

They look cool.

With all these new instruments will we perhaps see a Tritone perc refill in the future perhaps.

You certainly have a lot of interesting sounds to use in your songs.

That's a fun idea. You never know. Right now I'm just focused on getting to know and play all my new instruments. Not really in "making refill mode" at the moment. :puf_smile:

I bought a swar vst. It's a vst concerning with Indian instruments and rhythm. Anyone who wants Indian rhythms needs to have this. It's amazing.

I'm a paper book fanboi, marking them up, collecting them, favorite passages noted on inside front cover, etc.
BUT! If Kindle gives me definition and pronunciation, that might change my mind.

A nice book with many examples and tutorials about making dance music.

I gave in to Edifier R2850DB speakers. I was dying to get a 3-way speaker pair, which is convenient (bluetooth, RCA inputs, coax, optical), looked cool (yep : ) ), has enough power, is big enough (yes, AAAAH!), and has decent sound. Oh hey, came with a remote control, too, sub out, and bass, treble, volume knob. Don't mind if I do!

I'll do a full review of it sometime.

Most of the use will be casual listening, TV/movies, videogames.
I'll also do some 5.1 tests, to see if I want to get into multi-channel music.

Their main purpose was and is: to buy something fun for once - instead of something that's mostly for work-only.

Are they good for music production though? I'll answer that in the future.
