    Default Buying stuff when you have absolutely no need of it

    Lets share some stories about...

    when you bought stuff you really didn't need for your setup

    OR

    You want stuff right now that you really don't need

    Heres mine...

    I've found a deal to buy a Xone DB4 for less than the price of a Pioneer DJM 900. I currently have a Xone:22. It would be a huge upgrade but... I don't need it!

    Yet I so want

    I wanted to get my feet wet into dj/production so i bought a midi keyboard and a dj controller.

    I wanted to do finger drumming but i bought a traktor f1 instead of a midi fighter. so now i have a barely used f1 and midi keyboard,

    i sold my dj controller to get a TT, mixer and a6. (I find that I like this set up more and music soothes me after a hard day at work)

    I continually look on craigslist and ebay for "bargain" turntables, then research the hell out of them, only to finally come to the conclusion that I don't need to drop the ching on tables at this point. But I really freakin want some!

    I also went to guitar center the other day for a 25 key MIDI controller. I've got a 49 key for production, but it's big and it's a bit of a pain to use on my couch while watching TV. Fortunately, the controller I was looking at on guitar center's website (said $99) was priced at $199 at the actual store which was what I needed to not be lazy and just move my 49 key around for now.

    There is a cure - spending an absolute FORTUNE, in the hope that better gear = a better DJ.

    Once you learn the lesson that the shiny new gear doesn't make you a better DJ, AND you're surviving off rice and noodles for 2 months, the RGAS SLOWLY starts to subside...

    I bought a set of Roland V-Drums back in 98 for over $8k never played drums before and did absolutely not need them as I was programing all my drums at that time (I've since become an ok drummer). Also bought a Ensoniq Paris HD recorder was about $5k I needed that one but still.
    I've done some impulse buying with DJ gear and lights too. But happy to say I'm almost cured until next must have thing comes around.
    Lucky the Beheringer controllers did not come out within a month after they were announced I would have bought them all even if I don't need them, now I know I don't need them and the lust has settled

    I was Cured of RGAS.... True Story.

    I thought about what i wanted in terms of a controller and what would be the next features possibly added to the software and decided on the APC80.

    Got TT's and Mixer with Innofader....so its the best of both worlds. Old School and Controller with colour buttons and lots of faders.

    Learned how to map my functions and ...

    CURED!
