Either of those would probably do. I have seen the second one on amazon before almost pulled the trigger on it and backed out like "maybe i'll wait.." Key feature for me would be some sort of wrap-around desk so I could just rotate the chair.

Nice clean setup! Just got one of those Launchkey Mk3s a couple months ago. That thing rules in Logic, Ableton and with the MPC!

@Ultros - On Stage makes a 'side car' kind of rack that goes with that desk I got. There's corner attachments and then the rack so you cant make it wrap around you like a command station in a space ship, but you can have a rack on each side that curves around within your reach if you want. Probably looking around $1000 for the desk, two racks and the two corners to attach them though. For that price though you can just get an Omnirax Presto, which is the newer version of the Gusto desk I used to have. THAT thing was awesome.

Always playing hardware Tetris with limited room/desk space. I find putting things in the rack means they don't get used, so I do a lot of switching in and out of stuff. This layout is working well for me tho, and is a fav combination of hardware that I keep coming back to. There's 10 outs from the MPC, 4 from the Prophet 08, and 1 from the Bass Station II going into Pro Tools thru a Focusrite 18i8/Behringer ADA8200. I can jam away until things start sounding good, then hit record and everything gets recorded to its own track for further mangling, arranging. Not bothering with outboard effects for the moment for simplicity and less cables.
