depressing Topic
I am in it for $4000 for the Roland Drums alone. Which I still can
not get a descent recording out of. When the I have great
take with the drummer one the triggers will skip. The fills sound like
a machine gun. I wish I could do that purchase over again!
Numerous 4 track cassetter recorders. Roland Br-8,
Numberous electric guitars, basses, recording effects, various mixers
90% of what I have purchased is long gone.
Not a clue.

Great question Cracks. Not counting what you said AND not counting what I never used, I will say $0.00! I paid for my MRS8 with an award so… but that was the only thing that qualifies!

However, if I were to count ALL of the stuff I bought from day one AND what I just bought this evening the tally would be (drum roll)… oh… I can’t stand the thought of seeing it in writing so… click hear to here the amount!!!

Remember these are Aus dollars which sits about 60 to 70 cents US to Aus $1.00

PS_04 $500
128 meg smart media $70
MRS $300
1 gig SD card $60
Behringer MS20 $200
ES57 Mic $65
ES58 Mic $65
Takstar Pencil Condensor $30
Takstar Pencil Condensor $30
Mic Stand $50
Behringer UB1002FX Mixer $140
Bass $50
Medeli Digital Drums $140
Yamaha Keyboard $240
Maton Acoustic $1200
24 bit soundcard $120
Behringer HPS3000 Headphones $60

Total $3320

And I built and decked out a shed to house it all for $10,000 :shock: Seriously

And my music still sounds shit :D
