ok this is a list of my current setup. I am just wondering if there is anything else that I may need to help have the best possible workflow and sound. Hardware MacBook Pro 2.16 17 inch maxed out 2GB RAM Tascam 1082 Firewire Interface, Controller, Mixer 500GB external Firewire 800, 400, USB 2.0 Hard Drive Beringher Eurotrack 12 channel mixer Korg Triton Classic Pro X (88 keys...weighted for piano playing...also decent sampler, and sounds) Roland JW-50 Workstation (just used as MIDI keyboard) Roland VS-880 (used for many different things...mainly for effects and sampling) (I'll explain if someone needs me to) KRK-RP8 Studio Monitors Software Reason 4.0 Logic Studio 8 GarageBand (for just getting ideas down when short on time) Ableton Live (trying to learn to use it for time stretching task...) Audacity (for taking out parts of songs for sampling...) Recycle (chopping samples and getting them ready for reason.) Am looking into getting a larger monitor, but that is secondary and will come later. I am also thinking about picking up an Axiom or something similar because of the pads and other knobs and things that the midi keyboard controllers have on them...(WHAT DO YOU THINK I SHOULD DO ABOUT THAT SITUATION?) If there is anything that anyone could suggest that I may have overlooked, please let me know. And if you don't mind, please explain why I may need this. If you want to know how I use any of the equipment that I already have...feel free to ask.
