Gift Certificate! Help me spend it.

Postby ElectricPuppy » Wed Jul 07, 2010 5:26 pm

So.... :grin:

I've recently been given this seriously nifty gift certificate to Musician's Friend. Like, $500 nifty. :grin: :grin: :grin: :grin: Here's the thing, though: I don't really NEED anything right now.

WHAT DO I GET WITH IT? Halp! Thank you. :wave:

I'm considering it. But, I'm considering other things, too. My short list (and by no means final):

GAiA
Electribe EMX
Blofeld
Maybe some nice, knobby mono sans memory

Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?

Can you believe this? I go to MF's site to look up an Electribe and... nothing. They don't even have a listing for them now?? WTF???

they typically tend to hide things they are out of stock on, zzounds.com does the same thing. Very irritating.

I have so much GAS for more stuff, it's not funny. If I had $10K I'd spend it all.

Most of what I want is used, though.

Let's see what I'd like...

Electribe ESX/EMX 1,000 (new)
MC-909 500 (used)
SRX03 200 (used)
SRX05 150 (used)
JX-305 400 (used)
Korg M3M 1,300 (new)
Yamaha Motif Rack XS 1,300 (new)
PC3-61 1,700 (new)
Alesis 8HD 800 (used - but I can sell 6HD for 400)
Eventide Eclipse 2,000 (new)
RND Portico 5012 preamp 2,000
Manley MSLC Tube limiter/compressor 3,600
4 new RMG 1" tapes 600
Pearlman TM-1 microphone 1,750
Mesa/Boogie M6 bass combo 1,400
Ultimate Keyboard Stand 200

That's 17,200 right there :lol: and I'm sure I can think of other things I want like pedals, more effects, a new rack, etc :lol:

I think I'm covered for outboard effects with the Kurz KSP8. I'd love to get the ADAT board for it, but that's long discontinued. :(

I'm looking in the direction of pimping out my DAW. I could probably use some more MIDI ports, and I've been considering a transport control surface of some kind. What i'd really like is the Mackie Control Pro, but (gah!) it's temporarily out of production. In lieu of that, I'm thinking maybe a Presonus FaderPort.

I honestly don't know if I really need another noise box, ya know? I gots plenty already.

I usually have to fight the temptation to buy a new synth when there is some other, less glamorous yet just as needed hole that could be filled. I've found the fun wears off faster than the piece of mind that comes from a well thought out purchase.

Exactly.

Like when I got the VSynth GT recently, it was instant gratification for several hours, but then... gee, I'm still not using all this other stuff like I should because I don't have enough ports, or I'm missing some cables, or gee I could use a footswitch for the MPC... blah blah blah.

I may wind up just getting some boring sundry stuff with this. :lol:



also: Curse you CR, I forgot about that thing. Facepalmerino.

Itemized GAS: CR haz it. (I should be so organized...)

ePup, check the expiration date. Don't forget the annual autumnal SONAR upgrade.

My work here is to give EP so much GAS he must get himself a new fun toy, and not just some utilitarian device (which he doesn't need a gift certificate for, he can just go and tell his wife "I need this.").

So, my work here's not done yet. :mad: :cop:

Tried finding good Maschine videos yesterday, but that was a FAIL.

Maschine wouldn't be a GAS item for you though, I think, because you'd end up selling the MPC and actually making money in the process :eek:

Yeah... about that. Are you interested in a fully-loaded MPC2500LE? :grin: It's cool and all, but I think I need to slim down.

Money? Not a problem. I'll let you have it on the Easy Puppy Payment Plan. Just $1 now and then only one more payment of your immortal soul...!!! MUWAHAHAHAHAHAH--! oh sorry, did I laugh out loud?


Feh. No money. Some excuse. :lol:
