Which REs did you buy and why?

I ended up taking the plunge on the Softube FET compressor. I bought an expensive mic a while back and lacking any decent hardware compression options (none, rather), I thought I'd try it out. I wasn't expecting to hear much of a difference with the Reason stock, but it seemed to warm and tighten things up in a surprisingly pleasant way. I like the parallel knob, and it seems to take kindly to most tweaking - it's not hard to get good sounds out of.

So my money is spent, but I'd love to hear how other users are fairing... Did anything surprise you? What should we save up for?

IMO it sounds like you made a smart buy!

For me: Polar
Why: of all the things available, it just has so many creative possibilities.

I bought Pulsar and Saturation Knob

Nothing else is in my budget right now, but I have an extra paycheck (side job) coming in about a month, which I plan to utilize on RE's.

Here's my wish list - In order of desire:

Polar
BitSpeak
Buffre
Etch Red
FET Compressor
TSAR-1
Radical Piano
Trident A-Range

At today's pricing, that totals $702. $838 after the promo prices go away.

So I'll probably purchase FET, A-Range, and TSAR first to utilize the savings of $136 which just about pays for Polar, Bitspeak, and Buffre.

This is almost my exact list minus Radical Piano. In place of Radical Piano I would add in one of the synths coming up, either the Poly Six or the Gforce synth.

Oh, yeah... I forgot to add to my post --- it's based on what's in the shop today. No predicting what will happen to my list when more devices hit the shop.

definitely +1 for poly six. going to be hard to turn down any synth offerings.

Well, with my five items I'm at $405, not including Predator. That's almost equal to a brandnew, boxed Reason 6.5. I don't think REs should be dirtcheap but those prices make one think twice before buying!

Or you could just buy exactly what you need and skip the other stuff. What's imporant getting all of them, getting all of them now or getting what you want. $405 is a lot for RE but I haven't bought any and won't for a while probably. There are only 4 that I would even consider buying right now.
