What was the best things you bought in 2016?

The best things I got in 2016 to get me ready for 2017 was:
1. I bought into studio One 3 which was great and I don't regret it since ditching PT. It has enhanced my production and Im able to do things that I couldn't do in PT. Enjoying the welcoming of Vocal Align and Melodyne to it. VCA faders, the SSL 4000 emulation for the Console Shaper and flexibility of this program.

2. Going to PC instead of returning to a Mac and having great experiences with a PC.

3. Upgrading to Omnisphere 2. Best move I've made in a synth. Buying a plethora of patches at cheap cost but never getting dull patches because of the lower cost.

4. Upgrading to Reason 9 and experiencing some great low cost third party refills.

5. Upgrading my Eastwest composer collection was a great move enjoying the new Play 5 dystem allowing faster load times. EW gave us the free SSL 4000 emulation Oxford England to enhance their product. No other product has done this but Reason.

These are the main pieces that had carried me in 2016 and will lead me to my goals in 2017.

In 2017 im looking forward at 3 products.
1. MPC LIVE as a stand alone.
2. Presonus Fader Port 8.
3. Keyscape by Spectrasonics.
What has been your experience with equipment in 2016?

For me it were a few Plugins:

- Sonarworks Reference Monitoring
- Izotope Ozone
- Waves C6 Multiband Comp

I am looking for a new Sound Interface in 2017. Maybe the Antelope Zen Tour. I'll see.
Oh yeah, Omnisphere still on my wishlist too!

Not really, I'm far from a specialist but from my understanding parallel surfaces tend to increase standing waves and room modes, since an attic ceiling is not parallel to the floor it's theorically better. It will be more complicated to calculate the room modes to.

Oh ok, that's why I use my trusty Senn 600 HD headphones I don't have to worry about treated rooms no matter what shape or size they are.

In a while I am thinking either to turn half the garage into a studio or one of the rooms in the house, I am still debating it. I'm leaning towards the room, cause I won't have a lot of stuff like I did in the past.

But I did just order the Virus Ti Polar Reason Refill! For 2016! I ain't finish shopping yet! lol

Plus I just bought Pulsar from Snow Audio for Omnisphere 2 I mean this is why I love O2. The presets are dope and easy to use and down load quick and using the Multi joint is bananas!
