I specialize in improvised acapella. You would think I'd be immune to GAS.
This year I've purchased four things for music making fun. Four!
The lavalier mic makes the most sense, as I do like to sing everywhere. It can plug in to my phone or my Zoom H1, and creates less accidental noise than I get from handling the H1.
I have a MIDI keyboard/controller arriving _today_. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B088FNFLF7 -- I'm super excited about playing with it later today.
Then I have two Kickstarter projects that I've backed:
The Orba would have been here in time for 50/90, but was delayed: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/artiphon/orba-by-artiphon-an-instrument-designed-for-your-hands
Then I'm also getting a wireless audio noise reducer: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/117828565/audiowow-the-worlds-first-wireless-audio-booster-and-... (Will it be useful or will I regret it? I won't know for sure until it arrives.)
How about other folks? Have you bought any cool equipment this year?
