    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 http://www.myspace.com/thesceneaesthetic and http://www.myspace.com/lastdaystanding). 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 (http://www.blacklionaudio.com) 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.

    whoops, i left that off. i'm monitoring through krk v8's. thank you for mentioning that. i've read the many posts about the importance of great monitors. i have room to grow in that area, but i've found the v8's the be rather accurate, especially in the room that i'm in.

    More mic's and pre's...

    Maybe an API A2D, whcih would give you a great preamp and converter...

    You might also want to consider a good compressor like an 1176 or Distressor.

    The possibilities are endless.
