A thread for all things audio for engineers, musicians and those generally interested.
Got a new synthesizer, outboard gear or plugins added to your studio? New instrument? Stage equipment?

I guess I'll get things rolling.
I'm currently very interested in how Rowland S. Howard obtained his very unique sound - while the majority of it was just within his style of playing, he did employ certain tricks. One of these tricks was using an E.Q Pedal with everything pushed up to it's maximum, an MXR Distortion Plus and a MXR Bluebox. I've recently ordered the MXR Bluebox and am waiting for it's arrival in hopes of adding some more unique sounds to my tone - I'm actually considering a complete re-haul on my rig because I've used a lot of really hard rock tones, and while it does sound pretty sweet in it's own right, I'm kind of getting older and looking to experiment a bit more and I'm really wanting to just make my guitar sound like a giant wall of terrible noise instead of having all the settings delicately tweaked throughout my rig to make it sound 'badass'.
I got rid of my Peavy amp and got a Line 6. What a major improvement. Also got another guitar as a Christmas present this past year. I have this tuned in Drop C and the Rickenbacker in standard.
Shit I got:
Terrible Squier Stratocaster that I bought in 2008.
Digitech RP250 multi-fx pedal. Most of the things in this pedal sucks but its whammy function is amazing and it's pretty much the only thing I use it for these days.
MicroKorg XL Red/Black edition. Just got this in march because I've heard sooooo many good things about it, it's definitely living up to the hype. (Also got this because Lights uses it ¯\_(ツ)_/¯)
Native Instruments Maschine. Incredible hardware/software sequencer, got it in 2010 and I still don't know how to use all its flashy functions. I'm a terrible person.
Native Instruments Massive, very versatile soft synth. (Most things from NI are 10/10.)
Reason. Just started trying this out and I haven't played around with it that much but the Scream unit is the best software distortion I've ever used.
NI Guitar Rig, use it for all guitar work and general reverb/delay/filtering.
Izotope Trash, versatile distortion plugin that can also be used for multiband compression, filtering, box modelling, etc.
Izotope Ozone, mastering plugin, I generally fuck over my CPU performance by using this for everything that needs EQing and/or compression.
Sausage Fattener, just got this so I haven't got to use so much yet but it's this overdrive plugin with a huge huge maximizing thing. Idefk what I'm supposed to do with this yet.

Thinking about getting the Darkglass B7k and changing up my pedal board approach.
Oh cool! I was about to start a thread about gear, but there's already one and it's only a bunch of years old.
I have a couple guitars:
I have too many pedals, and also not enough pedals.
Plus some other crap:
I love geeeeaaaaar
