Gear Heaven: Dialing In Your Sound While Learning At The Same Time
I am the type of person that likes to always be learning or else I feel stagnant or predictable. One way for me to keep learning is to introduce a new piece of gear that is different is color/sound texture or purpose. This year I added multiple new mic preamps that are tube or solid state or in between, which really opens up the soundscape, and also a mastering EQ and compressor. All of them has changed the sonic pallet and the mastering gear has changed my workflow. Of course the sound quality is phenomenal.
