One son is getting a complete harmonica set. Another (guitar player) is getting a Pigtronix looper (deep!) and beat buddy which can be midi synced with the pigtronox. My keys are good for now so Im eagerly awaiting a Trio plus (bass, drum, looper) and Taylor gs mini koa - fantastic travel guitar.

Presents from me for the Mrs. and the kids. And one for me from them. But its not going to be gear, LOL. Who outside of this clan knows what a Radial Keylargo or Yamaha MODX is and Im not about to explain it. :) That stuff is a present from Dad to himself. ;)

The piano (but the tree is a crystal one that is about 10" high, and illuminated from behind by a rotating LED light system). Takes less than 5 minutes to setup each year.

 

I didn't put the other one out this year, my mother made it one year at church quite a number of years ago, a decorated pine cone with little strings of tinsel, tiny ornaments - just a beautiful expression of love. This is my most favorite memento of her. It is staying in it's box this year to be sure it isn't damaged (by one or the other of the cats).

 

LOVE Mark Zeger's answer.

Grass, dirt, and a few leaves I didnt rake.

 

Same here. Plus old worn out bark/mulch and cat ' souvenirs'

 

I am optimistic as my 3 yr old orange tree has about 40 green baseballs.

 

Can't wait ;)

Wife bought me an upgrade to Superior Drummer 3 before the upgrade price expires at the end of the year. Spectacular piece of software.

 

We also, after 9 months of hassle, signed the lease on Friday for a business we've bought so the stress starts now :)

So many drummers, so little time.

That will do wonders for your productivity!!

 

While we are on the subject, my tree (18" tall, sitting on a hallway table, with lights(!)) will have a decent entry-level electronic drum set (probably the Alesis Nitro Mesh) for my wife. Every time I drag her into a music store, she gets behind a set and wails away..!

Thanks, much appreciated.

 

This is the start of a longer term plan for my retirement from the corporate world in a couple of years.

I had a similar and successful plan.

 

I mentioned mine here, a few posts down:

Me, if I go overboard on the rumulated egg nog.

 

Actually, my sister gave me a backup wired CME Xkey 37, as they are out of production. I find it very useful, so that's one superior stocking stuffer. Righteous!

 

One friend sent me a nice book and a 1 TB USB drive. He said "What are you going to put on the drive?" I said "Porno from Borneo, just like you, you perv!"

 

Another sent me a Bender mouse pad from Matt Groening's "Futurama," stating ANYTHING LESS THAN IMMORTALITY IS A WASTE OF TIME. How can I not appreciate a robot who drinks and belches fire?

 

Two years back, yet another knew my current USB interface was a rabbit pill, so he sent me a Focusrite Scarlett 2i2. That was a golden gift, because its been 100% stable from Day 1.

 

The best thing under the tree is gifts from people who approve of you, despite your disquieting metaphors and synth FWONK!s. :cheers:

A vintageish CD player to go with my all in one unit, a Technics SL-PJ25. Just moved and the old Sony cd changer won't fit in the new TV cabinet.

Went for that particular model as it is the one that would have been could have been purchased with the all-in-one system originally (a Technics SA-X900L), although when my Grandad brought it he didn't see the point of it.

Stuff: Roland:SH-201/U-110/S-330/TR-626/M-48 Akai: miniAK/S6000 Yamaha:DX9/HS8/xs7 Korg:05R/W/AX10G Alesis: Vortex MK1 CME: UF70 classic V2/WIDI Behringer: DSP2024Px2/UMC204HD/101/340/D/03/8 ESI:1010e

My custom Mixers made to route external hardware synths and modules, and a separate FX Mixer that accepts the routings and adds Strymon Pedals to the External Hardware as well as ASIO singnals.

Sounds fantastic and every parameter is MIDI Controlled by the Physis K4.

Last nights gig at the Ugly Sweater event was so much fun.

I already bought myself a deluxe gift a few weeks ago: A Behringer Model D. Since I had a real Mini at home with the original oscillator bank (which the Behringer claims to replicate), it was a perfect time to play them side by side. I'm having great fun with the B.

Other than this, there will be the usual exchange of small things with friends...

Probably some software, which will be a little empty when it comes to stuff in a box under a tree :)

 

I am considering a Nord electro from proaudiostar (they have made a great deal for a new one when I asked), but it's quite a bit more than I typically spend on a keyboard. Debating whether my reduced live schedule justifies it :) Considering a mojo instead but the lack of synths/strings and really nice pianos leans me toward the nord. I wish I could combine the things I like from both :)

A dose of 'flu for both of us this year has really crippled what little we do for Christmas in our old age when the major Greek festival is Easter. Jan wanted a necklace to match a bracelet I bought her a couple years ago. I gather I have at least two smaller presents, one of which is a book about J.S. Bach.

 

That suits me fine as we don't have animals or visiting children and we're quite content to leave all the hullabaloo to others. I admit that we're pretty boring!
