What would YOU blow $300 on in your studio?

Want to talk about music hardware or software that doesn't include Reason?

Alright you've just been handed $300 and you can only spend it on something for your studio. Be it headphones, drum sticks, desk chair, VSTs, whatever.

What would YOU spend it on if you had $300 to blow?

only $300? a decent 16-channel cable snake and a new kick mic. those are the last holdouts for the near future, after having spent way too much money* over the last few months on music stuff.

*exactly the right amount of money

Fun stuff: MicroFreak, or Modal Skulpt synth. I never had a hardware synth and was thinking about it recently

More boring but needed: Power conditioner for better cable management and overcharge protection, and some headphones (something like DT770)

A DJ controller with Traktor and a desk. Rather than a guitar case rested on a keyboard stand.

I can't think of a single thing right now!

Very content with what I've got but that'll always change with time. Reason 12 upgrade? :twisted:

So me, myself and I?

Problem is that my (home) studio is already quite jampacked; I really consider myself lucky that the whole thing just.. well.. came together. I'm even starting to warm up to the Reason Rack Plugin! :shock:

Alas... I'd probably use the cash as a nice discount and grab myself the Berlin Orchestra Inspire Kontakt instrument. I don't really need it, but getting a huge discount on that would definitely persuade me to get it.

I am a complete sucker for orchestral setups, especially when done right. Although I respect (and can enjoy!) the Reason orchestral library I have to be honest and well... I usually turn to either Ableton or Native Instruments. Especially the latter ever since I got my hands on their Symphony series (through a major discount on their Komplete collectors release) :geek:

As such my pick for the above :)

Using the 'Power' Trio: Live 10 Suite (+ Push & Max 8 ), Reason 10 and Maschine Mk3 (+ the ultimate Komplete 12).

I might buy the Reason 11 upgrade and maybe something nice to drink whilst I use it for the first time 😉

Need $500 on a new AV receiver, probably Yamaha RX-V485.

I would pay the remaining balance on ReSpire and Ozone. It stresses me out that I'm renting them since I use them basically every day.

Tough question. It isn't nearly enough for what I want. I would save them up and buy something later when I've saved enough :)

I think I would upgrade my Ableton Live copy to the Suite version or maybe get one vocaloid voice bank I am saving for. At least in my current situation, if we were talking about what would be my first purchase not having anything the answer would be a very different one of course

Probably some sound treatment, maybe a decent mic and isolator shield.

mics! I'm finding myself more interested in the processing of recorded signals than anything else.

The only real krokodil is the stuff you make yourself.
