I see a lot of stuff I don't recognize

What is the thing on the left side of your desktop w/ the sliders?
What kind of monitors are those?

Are you still using the Akai S-950 (or whatever model around then)?

Out of curiosity, what kind of music do you make?
i make country and western with a slight goth aproach.. its a s-1100 and i still use it sometimes but never did new samples again since years..just play some old..

the speakers are mo stern ones .. a small berlin company.. basicaly a transportable speaker that goes down to 20 hz but on very low level only... like headphones you dont have on the heads... and the slider thing is a roland cmu 810.. a bit like an sh 101 without keyboard and a thiner but more elegant sound..

3phase.

I think I know why you have so many problems with Live. Your desktop computer looks a little old.

the cones inside your headphone are much smaller.. theese speakers are somekind of dancefloor version of auratones.. when you can get them loud and deep your mix is clean ... and in the highs its all phase alligned because ther are no crossovers involved.. they sell pretty good from what i ve heard..however.. my main speaker is the one to the left ..an old echolette box.. its just feels so mighty real, my personal monitor for playing... ..just the oposite from the small ones. and there are 3 other speaker pairs in the studio..the famous ns-10 and some huge russian cinema speakers and a pair of jbl 4412.. in the end i still trust the ns 10 the most..and the little mo sterns for the details the ns 10 miss.. also in the low end.. the mo sterns cant go loud on 20 hz..but you get pretty much the picture when you do to much down there because than they physical distort.. and there is a sub under the table to keep the balls warm..

How do you like the Korg MicroKEY USB MIDI Keyboard?

- The keys are the same ones you'd find on a Microkorg (mini-sized and almost-sorta-semi-weighted). I prefer mini keys; I can play a lot faster on them since I'm not a trained pianist. The pitch + mod wheels are also identical to the microkorg's.

- Compared to Akai's LPK25 and M-Audio's Oxygen (my previous midi controllers), it feels a lot more solid.

- As I've got the APC40, the fact that the Microkey is faderless/knobless is not an issue.

- The extra 2 usb ports is a great bonus.

All in all, I think it's a great controller. :)

Nice! Yours looks like a proper set up with the old school gear around, like a laboratory for sounds! sweet. (Lighten up on Live, it ain't so bad. ;-) Nice monitoring array to hear the different things.
