Finally, if the focus is on making music instead of buying stuff, GAS relief comes.

For a deeper view, check out an interview with Carl Jung entitled "Americans Must Say No." It's about saying no to living a life that is not truly in accordance with one's individuality. It is of universal application (not just for Americans).
We’ll i’m definitely finding that any more gear and it’ll pi$$ me off and get in the way of making music. I suppose my GAS’ing is due to the fact that when i made music in the 90’s I had the WORST setup known to man that was pretty much unusable (Atari ST, S2000 with no storage or FX or outputs or really any samples, mixing to Minidisc through a DJ mixer - it was hell). So in these days of being able to buy hardware at 10 cents on the dollar, I’m like a kid in a candy store lol I’m at 50+ U of gear and counting....

Thanks for the advice. I’ll look at at the Carl Jung info too.

Thanks again
