Sorry to be Captain Buzzkill. Didn't know where else to put this. Haven't been around much lately, after buying a house and finding out - after the huge expense of buying the thing in the first place - that we now will have to rebuild our entire septic system (possibly up to $20k, or even higher according to some estimates).
Naively, I was just looking forward to unpacking synths and drum machines and setting up my first entire room dedicated to a studio. And, ooooh, doing bass-traps and panels on the walls. Probably will have to sell it all. No more music making for me for quite a while. Might keep Ableton Push and go ITB. We'll see I guess.
Yeah, more than a little depressed. Will keep listening and reviewing fellow Elektronauts music when I get some rare spare time. Listening to all your tunes always brightens my day.
Just wanted to say, keep making that music! Stay light, stay minimal. Live the artist's life. Don't follow the lemmings, don't be conventional. Don't "grow up". Don't buy if you are comfortable renting. More than anything make time for your art if that's your guiding light and purpose in life.
And... always, always, always get all your systems thoroughly inspected when buying a house.
Anybody wanna buy a Rytm in excellent condition?
Sorry. Back to regular goofy thread.
