It may be expensive, but everything integrates pretty perfectly and should be as user friendly as can be. I think this very well may be it, for me at least: Computer: MacBook Pro (have), Apple 20 Cinema Display (need) DAW: Apple Logic Studio (need) Interface: Apogee Ensemble (need) Console: Mackie Control Universal Pro (need) Midi Controller: M-Audio Keystation 49 (have) Monitors: Event ASP8 (have) Any thoughts or suggestions you guys may have to any of this gear would be greatly appreciated. This is a big purchase and I want to be as informed as possible. I know the Keystation kind of sucks, but for what I need it for, it is fine for now. I don't necessarily have to have the external Apple display but it would really help.
