    Though I have no direct interest in hip-hop, you have one hell of a studio - one that could make just about any type of music.
    It's all in the hips.

    damn man, you have a very nice set-up. the new denons are really dope from what i have read. i need to go to my local guitar center and try them out.

    i have 2 pioneer CDJ-500, which i forgot to add to my list, and until i read about the denons, i really wanted the CDJ-1000's.

    anybody reading this post, and has an interest in pioneer and denon CD turntables may want to check out this link:

    http://www.mwsound.com/commerce/faq.cfm?INV_ID=3342

    it gives some FAQ about the new denon CD players.

    looking at your setup i wouldn't consider it a hip hop studio. What part of you studio do you make most your beats with? I listened to the korg ms2000 and thie proteus in guitar center and the ms sounded like something made for techno and the proteus seemed to be just a piece i would use for my strings. Anyway i looking for some new equipment to add to my studio so tell me about your stuff.

    my studio

    computer:
    Pen 4 1.8mhz
    60 gig HD
    18.1 gig scsi 10,000rpm
    256 ram
    delta 44 sound card

    Equip:
    Trition rack
    midiman interface
    midiman controller

    on the way
    yamaha motif
    roland xv-3080
    emu mo phatt
    yamaha cs6r
    yamaha monitors
