i did mention it in the 2018 thread as i was hoping to order it sometime through the holidays, but one thing and another meant it was put off...

so, morphagene, will be here saturday.
also, my gf bought me a cover for one of the mantis racks, so im adding another.
some more cables (obvs)

still undecided where i want to go delay wise, looking for something with longer delay times rather than any of those fast for ks delays. maybe a nice tape delay emu? still researching...

erbe verb will however be added soon too.

then, wait on clouds2 and cvlization :)

new electrics for the sg, finally! and a refret while im at it :hihi:


im sure there will be lots more to come :D

You have an SG?

As for me, nada. 2018 saw me spend around €2,500 on the Gretsch, VOX, and software. I have all the software I need. More than enough, really.

I'll be putting together a live Rig from scratch, so a lot of purchases

Ableton Push 2 or Maschine 3 + Jam
Kaoss Pad
1-2 Akai Fire Sequencers
A Mixer, possibly from Presonus
New Monitors, possibly Adam
A quality Midi Keyboard, possibly Roland System 1
New PC, Possibly Dell XPS 17"
Other stuff

I have a rough idea of what I need but I'm stuck on the first choice, Push 2 or Maschine 3.

I can get M3 plus Jam both together for the price of Push 2, so it's a touch choice.

I just picked up a Doepfer 111-2V VCO and Roland 521 Dual VCF. Likely to pick up a Matrixbrute. I hope to get a River notice this year :P

yes, an 86 epiphone :hihi:
For the price of new electronics and a refret, you would be pretty close to a new Epi. Does it have sentimental value?

I've had better luck with Epiphones than with Gibsons, too. I've had 3 SGs and one LP, and only one has been worth keeping. Probably my favourite electric, aside from the Gretsch, is an Epi Lennon Casino. I see them selling 2nd hand now for more than what I paid for it. Every Gibson acoustic I've ever played sounded like they had blankets shoved into the soundhole.

Hopefully a new house/studio. I'm also looking at stereo tube processors, like Culture Vulture, HG-2 Black Box, and SPL Tube Vitalizer.

The Chase Bliss Dark World I ordered back in... October was it? is finally on the way and will arrive Saturday.

I'm going for a 16n Faderbank, a TXb so I can properly connect the i2c, and an ER-301. After that, I am totally winging it based on how much I think the ER-301 replaces in my rig. (Probably Tyme Sefari at least.)

Keeping an eye out for CVilization though.

I'm actually going to keep track of my spending for once, and naively hoped to mostly fund new gear from sales of old gear (but I'm not sure that's really going to happen).

A car and a refrigerator and a Ibanez RG3770fz tr and a few kemper rig packs 2018. 2019? I need to sell a few other guitars and buy KEN SUSI KS-M6 Evertune guitar. And few more other kemper rig packs. :band2: And some wav-files packs for the dark ambient stuff. Software? I've got everything covered. :phones: :party:
