    Maybe he's just running out of space?

    Or running out of money for canned air to clean the bastards.

    Well, I think he has financial problems or kind off. Living in LA is expensive, film industry is dead and he has to pay his (probably huge) electricity bills or other costs.

    Having too much gear can really paralyze your creativity.

    I think he's at an age when you wonder how things should go on. And he has realized that it cannot go on like this.
    All the stuff is stressing him and everything that comes rushing at him is stressing him.
    So it's time to make a cut and concentrate on what you want to continue.
    I think he's doing it absolutely right. He can't use everything that is standing around in his studio anymore for the best of his mind. So he gets rid of the (for him) now needless gear. :like:

    this is what junkies do...:rofl:

    the video is pretty annoying, hearing how everything was "used in deadpool"
    and a few other movies of which i thought the score was just generic library stock audio

    some cool synths, but you have to be really rich not just flimsy deadpool rich to keep all those vintage gems repaired and functional

    He's just fine, it clearly says in the article why he sells the gear, but if you're in to guessing and imagining stuff, than carry on...
