Minimal Home Studio Set-up

Broke out the Korg EA-1 and Korg ESX-1 to start writing my new Burnt Orange album. I loaded the ESX with tons of vintage late '70s drum machine tones including my DR-55 and DDM-220 sounds. The idea is to mix an early Joy Division drum type sound (they used old drum machines with live drum tracks) with surf, twang and dub electric bass. So far the first few track have been beyond my expectations. I set up a minimalist studio at home so I wouldn't be tempted to add Reason tracks from the computer. Also- The Boss Spring Reverb Pedal and Space Echo I bought recently are sublime in this set-up.
