I'd love to make myself a gift, basically I'm creating one step at a time my own little home studio!
right now i have the basics in order to make my own music (mac, soundcard, monitors, crappy midi keyboard, nice microphone, an apc40 mk2, a bunch of various plugin and tons of samples :p), but after a couple of years of work basically without any kind of hardware I'd love to give myself something that's cool, oldskoolish and not too expensive...

I put my eyes on something like an old KORG M1 for example, or maybe some kind of synth like something from the new korg volca series or the mini/microbrute from Arturia, or in extreme cases maybe an old akai sampler like S950 or S2000 (but maybe they are a bit hard to use nowadays)...

I'd love to buy all of them but actually I want something usable and useful...
Does anybody has any suggestions?

I know today everything practicable through software, but sometimes I really appreciate to work with knobs, buttons and faders... Especially the synthesis part of the work is sometimes a little frustrating

I'm just gonna grab a new acoustic guitar. Been wanting to incorporate "real playing" to my music since ages ago.

Maybe a midi controller as well.

Bought MPC studio, waiting for software update 2.0. I hope that it will be available at Christmas time and there will be audio drag and drop on arrangement. Ha ha Silly me. #NeedtobuyPUSH
