    Hi, I am looking to start up my home studio. The current links that I am looking for are the interface and keyboard.

    My overall goal is to eventually have a high quality setup for mostly digital recording (Axe FX II as an endgame).

    My current hardware:
    Processor:Core i5-2500
    GFX: Sapphire HD 6950 1GB
    MB: Intel H67 microATX motherboard ( - Intel BOXDH67GDB3 LGA 1155 Intel H67 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard)
    OS: Win 7 64 bit
    DAW: Reaper, Ableton Live
    Monitor: Acer AT3265 - 32 inch
    JVC JR-S100 MK II (100 watt solid state from the 80s)
    Two custom made 2x8 speakers
    Sennheiser HD 280 pro
    Behringer UCA 202 - Does well for $20
    Shure SM57, looking to pick up a 58 for vocal work

    Total budget: ~$800

    What I need in a recording interface:
    Midi in/out
    Two XLR ins
    XLR and 1/4" out
    Low latency
    Driver compatibility

    What I am looking at for a midi keyboard
    61-88 keys
    pref semi weighted M-Audio Keystation 88ES Midi Controller: Musical Instruments M-Audio Keystation 61ES 61-Key Semi-Weighted USB MIDI Controller: Musical Instruments

    Any recommendations/input welcome.
