    You need a soundcard. Other than that you seem pretty set to go. You might want to consider a mixer as well, as this will allow you to expand more easily and makes monitoring simpler (no latency issues). Actually, you didn't mention how you were planning on listening to your stuff, computer speakers (bleuurrgghh), home stereo (not great, but passable), proper studio monitoring (great, but expensive).

    Just for the record I hate you too. 5g's to spend on gear, how nice would that be?

    yeah. im looking at a 16 channel mackie mixer, Roland monitors, would a layla or Motu work with this. what would it allow me to do. Also would a midiman router 8 be better.. a small compressor.

    Peace, just a simple question why buy a MPC and a Triton ? That's two sampler/sequencers thats wasting money and besides the Triton is really overrated on the DL if anything get a Motif6 and Motu's new firewire recording setup You'll have money for a preamp microphone and have some change left over. Again this is just my two cents
    PEACE

    Maybe it's just me I could be too thrifty, but I think that buying both the triton and the MPC too much, again check the Motif the sounds are Bananas and even the Yanaha RS7000 is dope, and it costs less than the MPC. Don't get me wrong the MPC is a dope sampler/sequencer but if you dont have to spend the extra cash save the money. Hell all I use an Ensoniq ASR-10 and it's done me and it's still doing me justice, I will admit when the Triton first came out I was like oh ISH but when the Motif came out that get me open and its $300.00 cheaper too.

    Peace
