Hi - I'm Nightfalltech and I'm a gearaholic..

Hi,

Recently joined after deciding, at the age of near 40 that perhaps I was interested in music after all, Have taught myself guitar basics (e.g. I can strum chords with some rhythm), vaguely remembered how to play chords and a few scales on the piano from a few childhood lessons, remembered using ProTracker on the Amiga and started buying gear.


I'm the proud owner of

Synths/Keys

Korg minilogue
Korg monologue
Korg Krome (73 key)
Novation circuit
Novation Launch Control XL

Decent PC (8 core Ryzen) with Ableton, Amplitube, Massive and Valhalla Reverb Plugins
Steinberg UR44 6 channel interface
Steinberg UR22 2 channel interface (now on ipad duties)
Ipad
Prosunus Eris 4.5 Monitors

Guitars & Amps

Yamaha TRBX204 Electric bass guitar (4 string active)
Yamaha APX600 (slim acoustic electric guitar) <-- main practice guitar
Yamaha EG112 electric guitar
Ibanez RG421AHM Electric Guitar
Boss Katana 50 guitar amp (rarely used, i use Amplitube most of the time)
Fender Rumble 40 Bass amp

And a couple other cheap guitars i need to move on.

Yamaha F310p (beginner dreadnought)
Crafter HTC1000SEQ/N Beginner acoustic/electric

All collected in the last ~9ish months
I'll note that fitting all of this into my PC area in the lounge and keeping it safe from Cats & Kids is 'interesting'

Listening wise, I'm into a wide range, from Trance to Guns & Roses to Pink Floyd to Enya to Bach to Disturbed to Simon and Garfunkel. I like electric guitar solo's and keyboard pads

I'm on a short buying hiatus due to she who must be obeyed , But in the future i see a VA synth like an Ultranova maybe in the list, possibly a 'nice' poly synth eventually, probably an Epihone les Paul and maybe eventually a Fender strat and a Fender Jazz bass.

I'm probably going to pick up some kind of 88 key electric piano with hammer action keys at some point too..

Software wise, probably Diva

I can't justify really expensive gear because i'm unlikely to ever be a 'real musician'.

I'm planning to keep learning and practising keys, bass and guitar and keep trying to make trancey stuff
