    I just bought an ISP Theta preamp. I've been looking for a while, and found a great deal yesterday.

    As ludicrously unnecessary as it is for my current recording needs, I'm sorely tempted to buy an RME Raydat PCIe card and one or more additional Presonus Digimax FS. Before I do that, I should probably FINALLY buy a Presonus ACP88 like I've always wanted.

    On the other hand, a Presonus Studio 192 would solve several of those problems at once, but I've had too many bad experiences with Presonus interfaces to buy one on faith.

    My next purchase will likely be a nine string hybrid 24/19 EDO non-linear-multiscaled approximated True Temperament guitar. Seriously.. :spock:

    I use PitchLab Lite (Android app on mah phone-blet).

    Me: a cover for my Quiana -- cats want to sharpen their claws on the grill, can't have that.

    With any luck, new pickups for the new guitar - EMG Het Set or 57/66 ideally, but I'm actually considering the good ol' 81/81 set since this is gonna be my Blind Guardian guitar.

    That, and a new Floyd, once I figure out which one to go with, since I'm gonna be keeping it blocked (or Tremol-no'd) anyways.

    On a bit of a winning streak at the moment, found a nice Ibanez MMM1 Mike Mushok baritone which is on the way. Also got my hands on an old Boss RV3, awesome pedal, for really cheap, $90 cheap. Also picking up a Boss DD3 tonight for $50. Happy with that!

    I called Presonus to ask a technical question. After being on hold for 24 minutes - during which time I was never told which place I was in line, or an estimated wait time, or anything more useful than that I was on hold - I figured out the answer to my question and hung up. Presonus strikes out yet again.

    MOTU has never really been on my radar, and I'm really starting to think it should be. After several hours of checking between various manufacturers' sites, reading manuals, poring over tech specs, the usual rigmarole of deciding what I want to buy, I had it narrowed down to a 1248 or a 24ai. While I like the feature set of the 1248, and the I/O options, I'm not in a hurry to jump into Thunderbolt, and I want more inputs than that offers - for completely illogical reasons, given that I haven't used even the 16 inputs I currently have available for quite some time. Then I can run TOSLINK out to a Presonus Central Station Plus for all my monitoring needs. After all that, I would just need two more Digimax FSes and build a breakout box with combo jacks for all the DB25 jacks on the 24ai, and I would have 72 channels in, with no outboard processors required.

    Just ordered a Yamaha THR10 from Sweetwater. Best thing about ordering gear from them is that I can get things next day, here in Wisconsin.

    Anyway, I am SUPER excited about this amp. Just about every single review, on every single website or publication has raved about them. I wanted something practical yet versatile for practicing without having to open my DAW and run my HD500 every time, and it sounds like this little amp wouldnt even be a bad option for recording either. Especially excited that it can run for 6 hours on 8 AA batteries when it's not plugged in. I can practice literally anywhere!!!

    Just got a Boss LS-2 and an EHX Chill switch from Sweetwater.
    Like InCasinoOut said about his THR 10, I get stuff from them fast too here in Michigan.
    I will however disagree about that being the best thing when ordering from Sweetwater.
    The best thing is always getting a bunch of candy in the box! :yum:

    Woah, how could I forget! The candy does rule. Sweetwater is definitely my favorite place to order gear, but I also do really like Cascio Interstate Music here in WI too.

    Probably a noise gate and a few more pedals and then start saving up for a 6505+ and a new 6 string.

    Im thinking about getting a Garland 1u 6L6 power amp. If i can replace my mesa 50/50 with something lighter and free up a rack slot, seems like a win.

    ...thats if i dont win the peavey classic 60 i bid on...time to check on that!

    Strandberg Boden OS 7, or Carvin Vader 7....

    Being in the UK, they'll be about the same price w/shipping, now I've just got to decide which I'd hate to not have more :lol:

    Quoted myself because it's fun.

    '89 LPC bought, here next week. Got a Warpig sitting on my desk what I was gonna throw in my baritone, but it's going in this instead as this one has a JB and I don't want that....seller pic:

    I was waiting to post until I decided to keep them for sure but a week or so ago, I picked up a set of KRK Rokit 6 G3 monitors to replace the Fostex PMO 4.n ones that I have been using. I was kind of on the fence about keeping them or trading them in for a set of Yamaha HS5 but since I'll be using them mainly with my GSP1101, I don't mind the extra low end they have vs other studio monitors.
