Thanks vurt, yeah no worries, I will definitely explore it well before buying anything else. That was the point of getting the Cartesian rather than the shared system. I figured that was a little too much right off the bat.

I’ll check out your post definitely :)

I got my Roli Seaboard block. It's faulty (at two keys) and I have to return it but it would be a great device so far. It's a new playing and surface feeling. I hope the next device is ok.

Not too much this 2018:

- Røde NT-1 mic kit
- Beyerdynamic DT-1990 Pro headphones
- JBL Professional active studio monitors with waveguide technology
- Korg NS5R module
- Korg 01W/R module
- Korg PA300 keyboard (for sketching quick ideas)
- Several studio acoustic treatment materials (acoustic tiles, bass traps, monitor pads, etc.)
- Various studio accessories (cables, connectors, stands, a AD optical interface, etc.)

And I think that that was all kit I bought so far this year.

Couple of decent low-mid priced mics - Ride NT1A and Sontronics STC-1. The latter sounds great with acoustic guitars - the little Behringer one was fine for the money, but the STC-1 brings out a whole new level of detail.

Needed a better electric 12 string to replace the Gear4music Shitenbacker so got one of these from Revelation (small British company). Spot on, and sexy looking;

Also bought a hollow body J Turser guitar from a mate. Rather nice, used it a few times on songs, also looks f**king cool, very good with the ebow, resonates like a bastard;

Also bought a little Fender modelling amp for monitoring when recording electric DI.

How's that 12'er working out? I asked for a price quote from the shop that, I think, you recommended, got it...€307 shipping to Germany. Thought about it, went to find their website again, and the shop was in receivership! That must suck.
Anyways, I sent my Gretsch back because of tuning stability issues. I am getting a replacement (in black) probably tomorrow. If it is less problematic, I'll give it over to my luthier friend, who will make it absolutely perfect.

In 2018 I got a Native Instruments S61. I love it, best keyboard I ever bought.

Yes.. I've heard that black keeps better tuning..
Hope it works out for you. :wink:

:D Snarky...

It's just that the walnut finish mdel is getting scarce around here. I'd prefer the walnut finish, but I also want to do business with shops I'm familiar with, and who are hassle-free when it comes to refunds.
