    A while back i decided i wanted to produce trance/house music and in my ignorance went out and bought a yamaha cs2x. I became very busy with school and sorta ran out of money too and so i really have'nt done that much in the way of music making nor had any money to get any new gear in a long while. That's changing. I'm going to have a 1000-1200 dollars US in a while to purchase some gear with and alot more time.

    I'm wondering what you guys thing i should get. I have a very competent computer, a very poor audio card, reason, cubase, and a yamaha cs2x.

    So... first off... what's a good audio card i could get that would'nt take up too much of my budget?

    secondly what direction should i go in? should i sell my cs2x (i figure i could get 425US) and then have 1500ish to purchase gear with? Or should i keep it and use it as a controller and for it's sounds?

    And finnally with whatever money i have left, what synths/modules software should i purchase to be used to make progressive/uplifting/hard trance and the occasional house (and mabye a bit of dnb)?
    what it is it would'nt be, and what it would'nt be it would

    for the audio card, lots of people seem to love the delta series cards. midiman
    If you are going to have external gear, the ins/outs are what you should be looking for unless you have some other way to record your stuff.
    As far as software, cubase should be fine for a sequencer, and reason's fun to play with. Maybe try some VST instruments. Personally I think the Pro5 and Mercury are excellent for any type of trance.
    I cant help you with the gear part, i'm in the same position as you were when you bought your keyboard
