It’s very easy to think that our music making will be improved by buying more studio gear. The reality is that it probably won’t, but there are some times when there are VERY good reasons to splash out…

Making music can cost a fortune, or at least it can if you let the temptation to own the latest ‘thing’, the latest update, the latest computer, or latest app, get in the way. And what temptation. Manufacturers know all about gear lust and how to tap into it, so they pack their latest updates with seemingly more power, flashing lights, and extras we didn’t even realise we needed. They make it so easy for us to say “Just. One. More. Piece.” Yet the simple fact is there are probably (definitely!) only half-a-dozen good reasons why you need to update or splash out, and if you stick to them, you’ll end up much better off financially and much better off psychologically. You’ll have beaten temptation, you’ll have a slick and tidy studio, you’ll be more creative within your limitations and you will be much, much happier (probably).
