This gear lust thing will be the death of me…

… because my wife will kill me for spending all my money on toys. I think many of you can relate.

From the first time I saw it I knew I must have one. I posted about how great they looked and how much I wanted one. That urge to buy did not pass for months, until I finally succumbed and bought one. I put my old CME UF5 MIDI controller on craigslist  and ordered the Novation Nocturn 49.

Look what just arrived!

Novation Nocturn 49

Expect a full review in the not too distant future.

For those not keeping score, that’s 2 gear lust articles that have led to me becoming obsessed and eventually buying one (the first was a Macbook pro).
Now if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got some music to make.

    i recently went for the 25SL Mk2. What made you specifically go for the nocturn 49?

    Spending all your money on toys and getting killed by your wife? Sounds familiar to me… 🙂
    Been looking at that nocturn keyboard with lusting eyes for some time as well, but I have just spent all my money on a different toy (Blofeld keyboard). Nonetheless I think I should replace my crappy Oxygen 8 sooner or later, so I’m really interested in a review. Especially since some friends of mine didn’t really recommend it.

    Congrats. Look forward to hearing how things work. In the meantime I’ll just be jealous.

      @Georg you’re one of the few that may get a chance to play on it.
