So another Black Friday (I HATE that term BTW) is upon us and yet again, I have made a few purchases for my Reason rack.

Thing is, I am NOT professional and don't actually need them, I just WANT them. Crap. Double crap.

This year? Softube's Tubetech and FET Compressor with the new RE-160 compressor thrown in for good measure. I am apparently addicted to compression.

So this year is my last. I mean it too. Well, mostly and goodness knows I don't NEED another thing as so poignantly pointed out it the "You Don't Need that New Plug-in" Thread.

Is there a 12 Step Program for this anywhere?

Do you think you're getting in trouble because of spending too much money?

Lol...unfortunately there's no 12 step program for GAS my friend. We're all guilty of it. The only barrier is your wallet or a significant other who detest's it.

No, not at all. I'm very lucky that my spouse could care less about it.

My past was written largely on jest with the underlying point being I ought to spend time now using and getting intimate with what I have purchased rather than seeking the next purchase.
