Electro Production

  • A friend and I are thinking about setting up a studio to make some electro / techno / acid , blah blah. I'm putting together a kit-list and need some advise. I have tinkered with software in the past (reason, cubase, vsti's etc) so I know about that stuff, however we're thinking off getting involved with hardware as well as software. What I am looking for is recommendations for monitors, mixing desks, vocoders (hardware or software, any difference?) and synths / drum machines. I already have a Roland PCR 50 midi keyboard which is cool for vsti's, a DX9 which was given to me. (nice bass but fiddly to program) we may have access to a friends 303, and are thinking of getting an 808. I personally would like a sh101 for lead parts, but would like to hear what other people are using. Any ideas suggestions very welcome.

    Cheers
