Hello all. I am a DJ who wants to start producing house music as well as recording mixes from my turntables. What I want to know is what kind of gear would be good to start with. I am interested in getting a hardware sampler, software sequencer and some sort of external control of the software (cm motor mix). I am also considering the alesis masterlink to handle the recording mixes side of the house. Basically my budget is around $3000.....What can I get and how difficult will it be to use?
