Recording equipment advise, what to save for?

i thought i'd post to try to get some suggestions on what to save for in my next couple pro audio purchases. i record mainly rock (recent projects can be heard at and i'm currently working with the following gear:

-groove tubes brick
-chameleon labs 7602
-Shure sm57 (3)
-Audix i5
-kel hm1
-studio projects c4 matched pair
-mxl 603
-Audix d4

thats my humble list of gear. i've been leaning towards a couple things for my next purchases, including a digi002 mod from black lion audio ( and the music production toolkit from Digidesign to increase my track count to 48.

any suggestions are greatly appreciated and will help me out a ton. slowly but surely i hope to develop my studio into a well rounded place that can cater to lots of different kinds of genre's and projects. thanks in advance!

While I could list dozens of units of gear that you might need or want, you don't seem to list monitor speakers. Monitor speakers are a must. Great monitor speakers make a difference and also are a must. Before you ask about monitors, do your self and everybody else a favor and use the search engine as monitor speakers have be vor and discussed in great length and many times already.
