2 Pittsburgh Modulator Triple Modes - ring modulator and amplitude modulator
w/Ecorack case and power source
Delptronics Ring Modulator effects box - allows either a carrier signal or internal oscillator

Flangers:
3 Boss Flangers - from the mid 1980s
2 Behringer FL600 Flanger Machines
2 Behringer SF400 Super Flangers
Behringer HF300 Hi-Band Flanger (could be put in the harmonizer category too)

I forgot to mention my Bouzouki first go around.
Since I posted I got:
another Dgitech Timebender
another Digitech Harmony Man (What's the sense of having 2 Timebenders if you have only 1 Harmony Man?)
2 more Line 6 FM4 Filter and Synth Modelers (They only store 4 of your favorite sounds, and I have more than 4, so I got more)
1 more Nervous Squirrel ring modulator (No explanation needed.)
4 Behringer Preamp Boosters (Don't judge me. I need several and they're only $25.)
1 Behringer NR300 Noise Reducer
1 Behringer Dynamics Compressor (believe it or not, it has a metal housing)
And my Alesis SR-18 came in. Highly recommended. Great sound. Lots of control of different parameters. Great control for live use (get a foot pedal for it). It also allows you odd time signatures with quarter notes, 5/4, 7/4, 9/4 and so on. For eighth note time signatures you have to be content with doubling up on the tempo.

Behringer Ultrabass BX300--30 Watt amp (Borrowing it, hoping to buy it from owner)
Gibson Godin 5 string bass guitar--5 years old or more. Stock pickups. (Very nice, but not a great learning guitar. Also borrowing it.)
Godin Freeway 5. Hoping to buy it from owner.

I'm hoping to get an Ibanez 4 string. I like the slim necks.

My gear is still packed in a storage room after a long period without playing but I think that I will try again soon, I just need to wait until I can tidy the spare room to make some place for the instruments.

Carvin DC135 electric guitar
Aria Pro-II CS-350 electric guitar

Boss GT10 guitar effects processor (I bought it very shortly before stopping with playing and never got to master it yet)
Yamaha GW50 guitar effects processor (not amazing but more intuitive than the GT10)

Fender acoustic guitar (made in Korea, rather crappy)

Hughes & Kettner Attax Tour Reverb guitar amp

Peavey bass

Peavey small amp I use for the bass or kb

Yamaha PSR-2100 keyboard, rather crappy (one of those with rythms, accompaniments etc where you can program the whole music to play and you just accompany with 2 fingers, I got it as a present)

As DAW I use the crappy Cubasis but for my level is more or less enough.

I can definitely relate to your situation. I've come back to it after a long respite. Finding space to set up fully is also a problem for me too. Aria Pro II's were nice guitars, I must say. I haven't run across them anymore. Mine was a nice compromise between a Strat sound and a Les Paul sound.
-Best.

Yes the Aria is quite nice, I have this model (I installed a Floyd Rose whammy bridge on it), it sounds more similar to a Les Paul than to a Strat, fitting for more jazzy and clean thick sounds in contrast with my other guitar the Carvin which is more like a mix of a Strat and a metal Ibanez.

Since I posted last I bought a Multi-Overtone MO-2 pedal, which is new from Boss. I was one of the very first to get one, as Sweetwater was the first retailer to get them, and I was first on their waiting list.
I also got a Roland GR-D V-Guitar distortion. Nice distortion, but what I really got it for was the saw tooth sound. It's made for the GK-3 pickup, but unlike the discontinued Boss Wave Shaper, which I also own, it can also use a regular guitar cable.
I bought a GK-3 pickup, but haven't installed it yet. I had hoped that it would be an easy install, but it's not. And I'm not sure I even want to mess with my Les Paul.
I also got two more Behringer Preamp/Boosters, and
1 more Nervous Squirrel ring modulator

Bought a Vermona Mono Lancet analogue mono synthesizer 6 weeks ago.
The Moog Voyager, Little and Sub Phatties are fantastic synths - but they don't, I find, have the warmth or organic sound of the Minimoog model 'D'. This thing does.

Yeah, Vermona synths are great!

My most recent purchase was an Electro-Harmonix Poly Chorus... it has four settings: Flanger, Fixed Filter Bank, Slapback Delay and Chorus. It sounds really good and you can use it to 'stereoize' mono signals.

Next I am thinking about buying a Mellotron 4000D Mini. They are expensive but the build quality is good and the sounds are very authentic.

I'm also very interested in the new Studio Electronics Boomstar. There are four versions, each based on a classic synth filter: ARP 2600, Oberheim SEM, Roland 303 and Moog 5089. Like the Vermona gear, they have an 'organic' sound.

Ooh...at present:
    ļ Alesis QX49: Not exciting, but a pretty good portable MIDI keyboard/controller. Replaced my M-Audio Radium 49, which it's much less bulky and more lap-friendly than.
    ļ DigiTech DSP 256XL: Basic digital delay/reverb/chorus unit. Nothing amazing, but I got it cheap and it works well.
    ļ Samson PL1602: Another it-was-cheap buy, a pretty decent 16-channel mixer, for hooking so many disparate devices to a couple pairs of audio inputs...
    ļ Generic Core 2 Duo XP box: For recording, processing, and mixing.
    ļ Oberheim Matrix-6: The sweetest thing I own, at the moment. Not as fat and mighty as the classic Oberheim polysynths, but I got a great deal on it from a guy in my area, so I can't complain - and it is pretty good.
    ļ Roland MT-32: Cheesy little Roland LA synth, severely cut-down compared to the D-50 but a classic of oldschool computer gaming.
    ļ Roland M-BD1: A JV-series ROMpler loaded up with samples from professional session bassists and drummers. A good special-purpose workhorse module.
    ļ Yamaha TX7: Module version of the original DX7. Warm, complex 6-operator FM synthesis - now if only it were multitimbral!
    ļ Yamaha V50: Keyboard version of the TX81Z module. Only 4-operator synthesis, but the addition of multiple operator waveforms gives it a distinct character from Yamaha's other FM synths.
    ļ E-mu Proteus/1: Early ROMpler. Later ROMplers try way too hard to sound "realistic" and mostly wind up either bland or in the Uncanny Valley; this one revels in the '80s cheese, and ends up sounding a lot stronger than it really ought to as a result.
    ļ Korg 05R/W: Another ROMpler from a little later on, but it's similar to the Proteus in that it isn't trying to sound like anything but what it is. Excellent sound palette and some good tweakability. I'm currently auctioning it on the 'Bay with an eye towards trading up to the upgraded Korg X5DR.
    ļ Korg MS-20 Mini: Don't actually have this yet; I put in my order, but it doesn't ship until close to the end of the month. Nevertheless, it's going to be glorious. Full recreation of a classic analog monosynth with semi-modular capability for $600? Yes please!

In addition, I'm going to be getting a Roland JX-10 from the guy I bought my Oberheim from, before too long...can't wait.

Korg MS-20 Mini: Don't actually have this yet; I put in my order, but it doesn't ship until close to the end of the month. Nevertheless, it's going to be glorious. Full recreation of a classic analog monosynth with semi-modular capability for $600? Yes please!

In addition, I'm going to be getting a Roland JX-10 from the guy I bought my Oberheim from, before too long...can't wait.

The Oberheim Matrix 6 is a great machine for pads, atmospheres etc.

I have the Roland MKS-70, which is the rackmount version of the JX-10. It has this kind of 'softness' and 'blandness' that I don't like so much. In my opinion it's not as good as the Oberheim Matrix 6.

The Korg MS-20 is a real mean machine, it's got an edge to it! You can get some crazy sounds out of using the two filters with the resonant peaks spaced apart.. Apparently the new Mini version of it has nailed the original sound too!

Fender Strat, Fender Blues Jr., some other small Fender amp
Devi Ever Hyperion distortion pedal, Pog 3 chorus pedal, wah-pedal
Johnson acoustic guitar
Fender bass of some sort, some bass amp (I'm really lazy right now and usually don't pay attention to this stuff)
Catalina maple Gretsch drum set, Paiste 21" ride, Zildjian 12" hi hats, trash cymbals, various other percussion
Cheap Yamaha keyboard
Wurlitzer electric organ (ca. 1969)
Some old mixing board, SM-57 mic, two other mics

My music
Seventy-nine years ago there were three cousins whose names were Rose Marymarsh, Mary Rosemarsh, and Marsh Maryrose.
