So little gear, so much time!

So I was sitting down in front of my rig and I couldn't think of anything I needed to upgrade. Or even wanted to. Sure, every single piece I have could be upgraded to something 'better' but nothing is stopping me from recording or mixing.

I started writing songs again instead of fretting about converters. I feel younger!

I guess the question is, how long can it last?

If you're anything like any of the slutz (including myself) on this forum, then I give you 3 more days :P

Oh man, I was hoping to make it to the weekend, maybe finish the song.

Then maybe get a new mic to record it of course.

Good on you. I have too much gear, but, I have so much fun with it. I actually view it as a separate hobby from my music, even though they are closely related. Sometimes I get embarrassed by my piles of pedals, for example. I think organization helps, time for a shelf or two.

Go and smash your router up! NOW!.. Go to a mates house and upload your music to wherever.. Occasionally check stats on an expensive internet tariff on your smart phone so you won't stay on it.!!

It's the only way Grasshopper, this site ruins your psyche with all this delicious gear.

I just had to re-decorate my room and scaled it down, especially after the other day when I compressed my head straight into a 1176.

I'd love to get to the point where I say "I have everything I need".
And I am absolutely tickled pink with my current setup.
Though hanging around a site called "Gearslutz" does nothing to curb your desire to acquire that "one more thing".

Which converters are you going to record said songs though? Are you sure they're up to par?

Thanks Guys,

I feel ashamed and silly for thinking that I could write a song on just a piano and then get anyone to listen to it.

The purpose of a song is to pass it though gear.
The purpose of gear is to render everything you've done autotuned and limited to 0.1 db
The purpose of limiting is to get it on iTunes and sell it people so that they can play it through those white ibuds.

I can't think of a way to do this with less than 11 mics, 5 compressors and 3 pairs of monitors.

I stand corrected.

Glad you know the score
