I have been playing with M:S this last months, since December. This is my first and only gear. My birthday is coming in a few weeks, and I am thinking about getting some new stuff
I could improve everything in my ‘setup’, as it’s really basic. M:S is connected as input in my computer soundcard, and I have one old Pioneer amplifier and 2 big speakers as output for computer
I am not really happy with the sound in my room, although I must say I was really happy with it (same gear) in the flat I lived before. The flat where I live now has high ceiling, one wall in my room is near 100% crystal… I have zero knowledge about acoustic, but I suppose they are not the most proper conditions
This is not really a heavy problem, cause I normally play M:S with headphones (I have some Sennheiser, which I really love)
So, question would be
Considering a limited budget (no more than 500€), what would you buy first? Some new toy? Or maybe a better sound system for the room?
This is one example of the kind of sound / music I have been doing https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=wv2_TLPbORs
And this an example of the sound I would love to achieve https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=Ay4yKZAJbTo (I know, lots of gear / work there… It’s just a reference for the kind of music I would love to be able to do)
Having just a M:S I think a new toy to play some bass / synths would fit great… Model:Cycles would be one option, but I would like to hear what do you think about. What would you do?
