This is how it started next door

That's my bedroom studio on the left and this is it now

This is the heat and smoke damage working it's way through the house

and this is the room next to mine, hard right in the picture above. Spot the difference a closed door made

So, it can happen, out of the blue. Think about insurance. Also smoke damage is immense and will write off soft furnishings and electrical equipment right through the house. A closed studio door could save your gear from a small and quickly contained fire close by.
Also I discovered my back-up hard drive was in the above room, the only room not damaged, so although it wasn't completely up to date, most of my samples and installers should be saved.

I mean, I'm only a damn noob who does it for fun and it's still devastating, so if you're more serious it's something to think about, especially storing your back-ups somewhere different from your main work area.

Absolutely gutted for you to be honest mate.
Can't imagine seeing my home like that. Jeeesus.
Best of luck with your next steps, hope you can get back on track soon!

Like I posted before, if you need some samples or presets or something, mate. Give me a bell, I'd be glad to help you out and get producing again. It's a sure shame.

That's some serious shit right there. Hopefully the insurance will cover you a new computer and all the other shit that went in flames, glad you're okay.

nah I didn't have my own insurance, like an idiot.Yeah it's a bit hard to take in. Actually three weeks ago my wife moved back to the UK with our daughter, which is why the gear was in that main bedroom, made a bit of a boys room to get lost in some music making for a while, take my mind off life. Then bam! all gone.
Absolute kick in the guts.

Cheers for the offer of samples, hopefully my back-up is ok. I'll wait and see when I can actually get a pc again!

Picked up a laptop on credit, now just need a usb interface (Scarlett 2i2 maybe?) and some decent headphones. Damn it's stupid and expensive not having insurance, even though I didn't have a lot of gear.
Probably miss the 770's the most at the minute, spent so much time wearing them they had kinda moulded to my head. Plus they don't stock them here.

Cheers for all the offers of samples and stuff. I'll deffo shout out when the time comes.
