Hello John Hanes,

Thank you again for doing this, I've learn so much from this Q&A.

May I ask you what has been the most useful investment for your career so far?

I'm a freelance mixer and I keep buying things, it seems to never end . Do you have any tips?

Best regards,

Nate

No tips on that sorry. We also seem to be constantly buying plugins and upgrading others.

I think the best thing you can do is to make your computer hardware last as long as possible. Get a stable configuration and hang on as long as possible.

We dont actually update the main protools system very often. Still working on 2013 trashcan Mac. I think we’re still running High Sierra OS. Maybe next year we’ll try the new tower Mac and new OS.
