  1. I pay just about $20/month for 2 select  subscriptions, one of which gives me $100 at the end of each year so I can pick and choose what I want to own (Kilohearts, btw). The is not a true 'subscription' per se. It's my plugged in membership with Harrison. That monthly membership fee does get me anywhere from 1 to 3 free new plugins a year and goes toward supporting Harrison's dev effort (as well as purchasing major version upgrades at a reduced cost).

    I'll succumb to Slate's subscription when I get a project that uses his version of ANA or THU but only until I can convert the projects to my native versions of the products. As of right now I do own all of Slates plugins, so it's just that niggle that opening a project that uses Slate's ANA or THU will not recognize and load the actual native plug and populate his settings (stoopid, stoopid, stoopid even though I understand the reasoning).

    I can only do my music so long then the Tinnitus starts acting up really bad and I need to take a break.

    My Tinnitus (at this point) is a random chirping sound similar to the sound of our smoke detectors when the battery needs replacing. And it's random which ear it's in. But, it's only in one ear or the other for the duration of the engagement on a given day.

    Like batteries, flash memory has a limit of cycles. It's estimated that a SSD lasts 25% less than a mechanical hard drive. A HDD lasts about 10 years, although there have been examples of drives lasting twice that. If you're writing large files to that drive constantly, that will greatly reduce its lifespan.

    I make every effort to replace HDDs after 5 years (to be safe). So I guess 4 years for an SSD would be about right. That means next year my DAW SSD should be be replaced.
