    Maybe a small tube preamplifier, to "warm up" the sounds you track to the mbox, that'd work with the budget maybe. Not sure which model but I saw the budget and thought about this.


    A good Power COnditioner (or better: Regulator) would be a good thing to have anyways - I have a PL-PLUS by Furman, it's a conditioner.

    perhaps a midi controller? oxy 8 or edirol pc-30?

    or try to get a stereo tube pre also, so you can run your whole mix through it at once.

    or beer

    I dont have a tube pre at the moment actually.

    On my Pulsar 2 sound card I run most signals through a device called VINCO, basically it's a modelled UREI/UA 1176 compressor/limiter, that gives a bit of charm to the signals.

    i got the motif7

    a peavey xr600c powered mixer/amp

    with a 9 band master eq and a 3 band eq per channel but i blew it twice and it's really yogurt sounding now. i'm waiting for my mac and mbox to arrive soon next week. i use my home theater system for monitoring and it does sound too nice if you ask me. imma invest in some event 20/20 studio reference monitors soon. but for now the pre looks good but i'm open to more suggestions.
