My son bought me the perfect present - a Rode PG2 pistol grip. A perfect present because whilst I consider such basic and boring things essential, they also seem so overpriced for what they are i could never justify buying one for myself.
I treated myself to the upgrade from Vegas to Vegas suite. Played with Sound Forge Pro and have been really impressed with the Sony Noise Reduction plug-in (it's always een highly rated). I'm no soundie, but I'm immediately getting very usable results - to the extent that I am now redoing my daughter's nativity play recording which i thought I'd put to bed and was ready for teh duplicators.
I anticipate lots of fun this year playing with HitFilm.
So, what did you get? Make me jealous!
