Lives for gear
I totally scored in the music department. I got a tele and a Faderport. Played with the tele already, but need to go buy a powered USB extension cable to make it all the way into the machine room. Can't find one in a store so I'll probably have to order one online. Oh, and I got a second teir for my keyboard stand Oh, and I also got the Glue plugin. Yeah, pretty much all I got for Xmas was music related! Best Xmas EVERRRRRRR!

I got some treats for my post-mixing listening lounge. A few more toys to test my mixes on:

1. Sony F7000 Speakers, Sony 7.1 Receiver, and a 55" LED LCD 3d Bravia.

2. Beats by Dre Studio headphones.

haven't even listened to the Dre's yet but the new media center is bangin!

It was a blessed year!


oh yeah and I gifted myself a lovely titanium 535i.

YESSSSIR.

A 32" monitor, Reason 5, some hookers(!), a pair of NS10s, Yamaha P2000 amp, the new Kid Kudi album, a camcorder, some wine, a cat food dispenser,
KRK R5 monitors, an APC40, NI Audio Kontrol 1, some cheap Bourbon, a Faderport, The Glue plugin, F7000 speakers and a 7.1 Receiver from Sony,
a 55" Sony LED LCD 3D TV, the Beats by Dre headphones, some Gearslutz merch, and some other stuff I can't remember right now.

Oh, and I actually found a very nice Burberry scarf on Christmas eve!

Here for the gear
 

Still waiting for the sales to begin on audio gear!! Seems like nobody is offering anything off their usual retail prices yet. Then I'll go and treat myself to some new monitors, checking out any suggestions (or purchases) found right here.

Same here brother. Wifey doesn't like buying me gear cause she says it's my WORK stuff. She doesn't understand the difference. Anyway, got myself a new core i5 system for the home studio. "WORK" studio has not been too inspiring lately.

Update:

A somewhat older friend of mine from Nigera just got back and brought me a bag full of Fela Kuti ORIGINAL vinyl. These are from before France (Universal) bought the catalog and remastered them, turning down the drums. Essentially trying to de-Africanize them amd make them "more suitable" to distribute for world consumption.

This is better than anything on my list from above. Even more so because I forgot he was supposed to bring them back. A nice surprise today!

As far as gear goes, I got the Audio Technica ATH-M50 Headphones. I've only been using them to listen to music, not for any kind of beat making/mixing work.

I asked for them because of all the rave reviews I saw on this board and elsewhere. I saw so much talk about their accuracy, transparency, etc. Although, I do agree that they are a great sounding headphone. They really do have this nice, powerful, warm, but pretty clear sound...I just don't get how anyone could mix with these. They make everything...even some very bad sounding stuff sound pretty good.

The only thing I see that these headphones would really be good for is spotting if your drums and bass hit like you want, and maybe some spatial sound spotting.

I dunno, that's my general impression. I am very happy with the sound quality and definitely appreciate the gift, but like I said I haven't done any work with them yet, so I still really have to see.

I also realize that many people here are completely against mixing with headphones, but for me sometimes there is just no way around it. I am hoping these will work out for me like it seems they worked out for a lot of other people who are forced to work in a similar manner.

I have 4 pairs, great for producing music! I mixed with them once ... never again, they make everything sound great. Not good! stike

As far as xmas gifts I had ... nothing but some quality family time. Ah there's always next year (been saying this for ever!).

2 weeks before Christmas my wife & I got this:




(I know, it's a beautiful ugly type thing, but it's my 1st brand new car ever)
(it also has a car stereo that will play mp3's off of a flashdrive. Nice for checking mixes)

Then I spent New Year's Eve here:

If you're a California skier you got to check it out!

In between new car & skiing I played with Lionels. I also increased the family BluRay collection. Hoping to get this:
