Yeah it’s cool tech.. We have a little cottage in the countryside, so my office the limitation on the amount of kit Incan have which sucks.. Sold so much because of room, biggest regret the MatrixBrute. Shit the bed, I loved that Synth.
Yeah totally, part of game though right.. We trade and sell, buy repeat.. mainly VST and UA DSP now days though, and a fuck ton of VSTs, too many to be honest as it becomes blinding. But that’s my addiction..
LoL i was in Jamies Account just now (J's my best mate and studio buddy).. yeah man, we have a german shepherd called Hiedi, she's totally nuts and often sleep under the iMac desk I've just added a new set of Neumann Monitors to that setup which is just amazing... So much sound now it's as if I was deaf before..

@DARKSounds - I almost bought the Neumanns for my mastering rig a couple years back, they are very tasty monitors. The Kii Threes I ended up with edged the Neumanns out ever so slightly, something about their imaging appealed to me a bit more... but I would've totally been happy with the Neumann's I'm sure. And I can completely relate to hearing superior monitors. Changes your whole world. Might not actually make you do better mixes and masters, but it WILL let you hear things you didn't even know were there... And it's so much nicer to sit in front of nice monitors for hours on end than crappy, tinny, harsh, shit that you find in a lot of studios. Again, won't make someone a mixing god on their own, but you'll feel like one! =)
That said, I do believe that good tools really do help a lot, at any stage of your career development and across any career path. I know my first "good" guitar, for instance, catapulted my playing exponentially. I learned in weeks what I had been struggling to learn for years prior using a cheap guitar with almost an inch of space between the neck and strings at the 12th fret.... same is true of things like good monitors, decent DACs, controllers that do what you want without having to fight them, etc.
