I have all the cool stuff, I think. LOL The only thing I picked up and I think is just totally cool because the AI works great is Jamstix 3.
Have you ever gone to a guitar store and there's some kid sitting on a stool making a $149 guitar sound absolutely awesome?
So my primary focus right now is on basics -- learning to do really well with what I've got.
It is my theory that pretty cheap stuff will probably give me every bit as much signal path quality as the Beatles had available to them -- and what made them sound great was as much their own performance and engineers who knew their stuff as anything else.
Let me phrase it differently. I am not a great singer. A 200 mic will do perfectly fine and it won't sound any better with a 6000 mic. A better investment for me is singing better. Once I am a 95th percentile singer (don't wait for that), then the 6000 mic makes sense.
I probably easily have upwards of $3k worth of music software on my computer. There is no way spending another $X will actually improve my end product.
So instead I have been practicing and reading and fiddling and learning.
