    are you gonna get a regular G4 or a Dual G4... if you are a rapper or hip hop producer(me ) i'm sure your gonna want more than the 24tracks that your gonna get wit the digi001 and pt Le. are you set on the Mac G4 if not... hear me out:

    Dual AthlonXP or P4 northbridge 2.2gig(Jan2002)
    Mpc2000Xl or RS7000
    Korg Triton or Yamaha motif; both are solid combos
    Shure ksm 32 or 44
    DBX 576 or 586 Preamp
    Tannoy or mackie monitors
    o soundcard....RME Multiface,motu 2408, motu 896 ae the first cards to pop in my head. the Staudio System III is hot too.

    then Run Nuendo or Logic 5 platinum if you go with the PC.
    if you do go with the mac, look into Nuendo for mac a Digital Performer 3

    thats all i could think of off the top of my head but then add the other stuff you were gonna get and thats a solid rap/hip hop studio.

    get a rane 52i, 54i, or 56. the vestax line of mixers suck. they are overpriced, poor quality, and have terrible sound quality. get a gemini umx-7 or 9 before you get a vestax. rane is basically the studio standard.

    rane are awesome for scratching. vestax is not the best. you know kid koala, he recorded all of carpel tunnel syndrome with a rane. the fader feels different than the vestax, but its just a matter of getting used to it. can you try it out anywhere.

    get a shure SM 57 for your guitar amps. It sounds better - much better than a condenser mike.

    Check out the UAD-1 or TC powercore, for extra sound reinforcement.

    Audio card Motu 828

    get LA Platinum with EXS24

    control keyboard, with cheesey preset sounds on it - like korg X3, or M1 or 01-w

    If you've got a line6 amp why not take the sound direct out of that (it's just an amp with a POD on the front end isn't it?) There must be someway of using the pod front end on it direct into a desk. I reckon to start with you'll get much better sounds like that than trying to mic up one of the marshalls. Why have you got so many amps?

    I reckon you want some toys as well, stuff to inspire you, fx in other words. Guitar pedals are relatively cheap and can be played around with in real-time, zoom stuff as well is cheap and can be lots of fun.
