Lives for gear

've taken the long road, buying gear when I can afford it (read: drooling at all the stuff i want and swearing when I don't have the cash to get it) but now half a lifetime later I have a quite nice studio with all the essential stuff to make nice productions, recordings and mixes. And I have zero debt. I'm happy about that since I can make a decent living in this crazy business and I can sleep well at night. And I can have periods of no income since now I'm "6-12 months ahead" financially. And I can take my son on vacation
Your self control has put you in the enviable position you are in now. If your computer explodes and you have a session that pays tomorow, OK I can see that. But if you have a savings account for situations like that then you don't have to worry about it. DON'T GO INTO DEBT FOR RECORDING GEAR!!! keep doing what you're doing. It's working. My 2 cents.
