If I had the budget, making a building from scratch purely as a music space would be the dream...next on the list would be a really lovely piano to go inside it.
a walkable piano? with a minibar?

i would buy ablton and change the company logo, get rid of grey splash screens and the person that designed it, and add a lot of usefull workflow improoving details..than i would sell the company with profit to lady gaga and move on...

That's a good point, I could use my new-found riches to put minibars on everything. New monitors - with minibar. New bass guitar - with minibar. 24 hour on-call session vocalist - with minibar. I'd never have to record sober again. 8)

I'd be interested in trying out any products by 3phableton...I'd probably end up Rewiring it into Live 7 though. :)

I'd buy a house with a suitable studio space. Got all the gear I need (a laptop and some monitors).

I'd get everything everyone mentioned so far plus a 6ft x 6ft monome 2,650 just for a laugh.

Then I'd use about 5 channels of the SSL etc making sparse garagey dubstep :lol:

If we're going all music related:

1. A strat played by David Gilmour:

2. A pair of Wilson Audio speakers (that'd I'd NEVER listen to my own mixes on :oops: ) Yeah, they're ugly as sin, unless your listening room is retro 50's sci-fi themed, but they sound incredible
Image

3. And a BMW M5 Touring so could lug my PA and other gear to gigs. No brainer here...

Mine would be a process.

1. Buy property with a lot of acreage.

2. Buy the entire stage setup from Tiesto's last tour

3. Every weekend throw an open to the public party from which a random person will be selected out of the crowd and placed on stage behind the decks at which point the computer automated show will be begin.

4. Laugh my ass off as the crowd heaps praise upon the fist pumper on stage who will truly believe they are a god by the end of the night.
