I announced my return to the PG Forums in the BIAB thread with the purchase of the 2018 UltraPak upgrade. But wait, there’s more! Today I also placed orders for:

A Dean EAB fretless electric-acoustic bass;
A Behringer D synthesizer (Minimoog clone);
Upgrade to Propellerhead Reason 10 (which, with BIAB, is my main composing tool).

Plus, earlier this year I was able to get an NS Design NXT4 electric upright bass, put a larger solid-state drive in my DAW, and repair the subwoofer in my studio.

All of this was with the enthusiastic permission of wife Trudy, a musician herself—but with a condition: I HAVE TO USE IT. I MUST start spending time with this stuff, or start thinking about selling some gear. If that sounds like a threat, it isn’t; it’s an incentive to invest time in doing what I love.

All of this was clear up front. I had $500 I could spent on whatever I wanted, but she kicked another $300 my way as long as I promised to do that.

Alrighty, then: I SOLEMNLY SWEAR I AM UP TO NO GOOD! cool

Richard

Richard, isn't it great to have a supporting wife! I also have one and she has never complained about my music hobby, even when I was gigging. She along with my kids have purchased a number of guitar, bases, software and hardware for me. I, like you and a number of us here, am truly blessed.

Ps - God put Linda, my wife, into my life because he knows that I can't be trusted alone for more than 5 minutes!

Hey Richard, good hearing from you again! I was just thinking about you the other day, wondering how you are doing... sounds like you're doing quite well!

Have fun with your new toys!

Any chance of seeing a picture of the scratch built acoustic bass you built?

Funny thing. People say I am up to no good when I play out live.

Well, they leave out the "up to"....

Wow.

That's not the response I got at all when I told my wife I might get another guitar.

I remember when my wife said "If you buy ONE MORE keyboard I am going to leave you."


I'm single now....
