To be honest it was fairly cheap. I didnt buy a single thing new. all of it was purchased used. Even my G4 was used. To give you an example the JP8080 I got for less than $300 USD. I think I paid $150 USD for the Novation Bass Station. I just figure out what I want and then sit around untill a cheap enough one cames along. I use mostly hardware because I was to lazy to learn Reason. But its not much different from what I have seen.

I don't got pictures yet, but my setup now is my comp of course, and just recently I picked up 2 Denon DN-S3000 CD-Decks, and a Denon DN-X300 Mixer, with a custom Odyssey C10DNS5000 carpeted case. An effects and sampler hardware add-ons are soon to follow, the studio builds gentlemen:D my only problem is I live in an apartment so I'm very limited to space as it is already. and err...for price? $500 US for each deck, $240 US for the mixer, and $280 US for the case. :D

here's a text about the picture i post, the name of this machine is intonarumori and is like the grandfather of the sampler:
i hope you enjoy it.
The instruments and music created by the Futurist painter/musician Luigi Russollo although not electronic played a revolutionary role in the incorporation of noise and environmental sound into modern music and were a primary source of inspiration for many composers. Russolo's attempts to put the Futurists theories on music and art into practice brought about some of the most extraordinary musical experiments in pre-war Europe: the noise intoners or "intonorumori" In "The Art of Noises" 1913, Russolo describes the passage through history from silence to sound and on to noise-sound and musical noise. He argued that the limited range of the current musical instruments could no longer satisfy modern man's acoustic thirst.
" Ancient life was all silence. In the 19 century, with the invention of the machine, noise was born Today, noise triumphs and reigns supreme over the sensibilities of men, let us cross a great modern capital with our ears more alert than our eyes and we will get enjoyment from distinguishing the eddying of water, air and gas in metal pipes, the grumbling noises that breathe and pulse with indisputable animility, the palpitation of waves, the coming and going of pistons, the howl of mechanical saws, the jolting of the tram on its rails, the cracking of whips, the flapping of curtains and flags.
We enjoy creating mental orchestrations of crashing down of metal shop blinds, slamming doors, the hubbub and shuffle of crowds, the variety of din from the stations, railways, iron foundries, spinning mills, printing works, electric power stations and underground railways" The or 'Intonorumori' or noise machines were a family of acoustic sound generators designed by Russolo to create the palette of sound described in the 'Art Of Noises'. The individual machines were comically basic in appearance: solid boxes of varying sizes and heights each fitted with a huge metal speaker. Russolo and his assistant Piatti worked away perfecting them ready for their first full scale concert in 1914. Marinetti, the Italian Futurist poet and helmsman described the experience of demonstrating the noise intoners to the incredulous public as like " showing the first steam engine to a herd of cows"
In 1914 Russolo and Marinetti gave 12 performances of the "Intonorumori" at the London Coliseum, the performances were, apparently, warmly applauded and Marinetti claimed that 30,000 people had witnessed the music of the future.
Later versions of the Noise machines developed by Russolo in Paris included "Rumorarmonio" or "Noise Harmonium" or the "Russolo-Phone" which combine several noise machines with a rudimentary keyboard. This was presented to the Parisian public in 1929 by Varèse who planned to put the instruments in to mass production.

dj/ableton setup

2 x Pioneer CDJ1000 MKII's
1 x Ecler NUO5 Mixer

I run a midi cable from the mixer which syncs the BPM of the decks to Ableton Live. Thinking about adding some extra controllers for more control.

Hi Brady, I think the mixer was £795 and the CDJ's where £600 each. Well worth the money in my opinion. Although the EQ is a bit crappy on the Nuo5, but the filters are great. Swings and roundabouts i suppose

Okay, kinda jealous...

But then again, my setup isn't too shabby.

3.06GHz 1024Mb PC
Terratec DMX 6Fire
2 17" TFT VDUs
Really cheap midi keyboard (What's the point of an expensive one if you can't play the thing!)
Lots of software

Alesis MarkII actives

Berhinger 16 channel mixing desk

Berhinger B1 Diaphragm mic

2 X Numark TT1650 decks
Berhinger 4 channel DJX700 (Cheap, but not as nasty as people think)

If it ain't breaks, fix it!
