Shortages that aren't always so short anymore but if people keep buying over the odds they'll keep selling at inflated prices. When I looked into API there was a 4 month waiting time. Heritage for the OST was similar but fortunately I landed on a batch. Beyer's are hard to get hold of at the moment (besides the M88), I mean it's sporadic at best.
Recently purchase to delivery times have been about 2 -3 weeks on average which ain't too bad really. Weirdly enough I've seen a lot of Stam stuff in stock LOL..
And I now hate to buy used stuff on eBay/Reverb. Everything has gotten so expensive (perhaps because of fees) that many sellers think that their used gear should cost MORE than retail price. I don't understand Reverb anymore. I'll rather buy it new, cheaper, and with a warranty.
Case in point: I was looking to buy a FMR RNC and I was able to find it new, with no taxes, from Front End Audio for $185. eBay/Reverb sellers wanted $220+ for their used units.
Does anybody know what's going on?
Does anybody know what's going on? Answer, no, not really. But there's a lot of people who will try to tell you what it is.
Pulled the trigger on an Mac M1 Ultra (20-core, 48 GPU, 128GB RAM). Technically the M1 Max is already overkill for standard audio production so this machine will be like nuking a fishbowl. But I was curious to put the GPU to the test with video and graphics projects to complement music stuff. I also wonder if anything audio-related in the future will be able to take advantage of the neural engine. I'm pretty excited to have another 10-15 year machine. Just wish I didn't have to have an internet connection to get all the new software installed.
A Yamaha 01V for live, and a Ethersound card. Just need a pair of AD8HRs and a Ethersound interface, using a Cat4 cable instead of a snake priceless and yes ironically a bunch of 8 ch Canare and Amphinol connectors for some small snakes.

Yamaha P-515B, today, just played it. Oh yes. Bought with slight trepidation, because the only complaint from some is the heavy action (and my grand and previous digital have light action). I figured that was likely an overblown concern, and it is, completely. The action is absolutely terrific, I would change nothing. The wooden white keys and synthetic ivory are superb, and I'll get used to the textured black keys in about five minutes. What a great piano, I'm going to like this...
Beyerdynamic M380 Shure 520DX Green Bullet EHX Stereo Pulsar SKB SG case that hopefully actually fits my guitar (Road Runner I grabbed is too wide) A bunch of percussion stuff I don’t have but occasionally wish I did (wood block, finger cymbal, cymbal stack thing, a bigger triangle, a big cowbell)
