Anacortes, Washington, USA
I eat computers, and pass (via my colostomy bag), phat beets and various electronic musics.
In all honesty, I use Albeton Live, tons of VSTs, one of my favorite being Kontakt. I make melodic IDM/electro-ish stuff. I am a piano player, so that effects my music quite a bit. I also play trumpet.

So I've gone and bought a whole bunch of gear.
I picked myself up a pair of brand new JBL LSR432P's for $1050 -- nearly $500 under list. They sound freaking phenomenal. To make matters better, they come with the whole room treatment mic deal, so I can quickly eliminate hugely biased mix issues.
Secondly, I got myself a nice cardioid condenser mic, a stand, pop filter, shock mount (EVAN CABALES TEW!). That has led to a few test recordings with some jazzy 5th chords on the piano, and... Jesus Christ, it feels so amazing to finally be able to listen to what I actually HEAR as I sing, and not the tinny, dynamic mic version of my voice. I swear, 90% of my insecurities just disappeared, and the ideas are flowing in like a raging river.
Lastly, I grubbed up a new TC Electronic Studio Konnekt 48 as part of a package deal for $1200 on eBay. I got myself the aforementioned mic in this deal, as well as a 250GB external drive, which is JUST what I needed. Freaking rad.
So, I am swimming in gear; both the music I listen to and create has never sounded better, and I may just be able to finally pull off the productions I've always wanted.
Oh, and I want to learn the violin, too.
I love music beyond words right now. There's got to be some way to express that ;)

express it.......THROUGH SONG!!
Violin - yes!
we need to start an em411 orchestra
i'll bust out with my FireWire triangle
that is rad!!! congrats!!!
Nice pick on the monitors. Okratron uses those in the 5.1 room and they are divine.
really happy for you, Jomdom. THere's nothng like money well spent on quality creative equipment, right?
math is hard- let's go shopping!
sounds awesome- can't wait to hear some musics!!!!!
congrats on teh gear! i picked up a konnekt 24d not too long ago and it's really a huge jump up, especially in the a/d d/a conversion (not to mention the dsp effects and nice, clean preamps). if tc ever gets their driver issues ironed out, you'd have a hard time making a case for much else.
Thanks for all the support, guys! It's really awesome to see so many familiar (and new!) faces around here
