    Dont take this the wrong way, but if i had that equipment I would be making beats not wondering about what I need.

    Chances are if you don't know what you need, you don't need it.

    not taking it the wrong way, i feel you..... I dont use the MPC for myself, or the XR Rack... I got them for the producers that don't have the hardware to use...

    It's not that I don't know what I need, I just wanted to know what others thought....

    Personally I would invest in another mic pre. For a wider tonal palette.

    Invest in either the Adams A7's or Dynaudio BM5a's for Monitoring
    (Basstraps are a given)

    Keep an SM57/8 around incase you want to mic some live percussion. Or again, change in tonal palette.

    Macbook Pro (maxed out) with Reason 3/Midi Controller and Refills for making beats on the fly, AND portability, AND you can call in a beatmaker to program drums while you mix or whatever..

    Just off the top of my head.

    OH don't forget a solid outboard compressor.

    Yeah, but I only spent 300 for the booth... most of it was for the foam... I feel what you are saying though.. I just wanted to plan something and build it from scratch... ya know?

    Cop a used ASR-10 wanna know what it sounds like listen to Dirt Of Your Shoulders (jay-z/timbo)

    Or cop a SP-1200 to run drums through, then upload in a MPC3000.

    But, that's a real pain if you are already used to one workflow already.
