Oh wow! I have often thought about it, but like you I am not overly fond of the 'multi box' PC idea, that's just my preference, I prefer one thing to do one job. I know what I am like as a man, one job at a time, more than one and my brain hits meltdown, typical bloke!
Although I admit I am at least considering adding my laptop to my small studio, mainly as a soft synth if I did, perhaps running a tracker.
Ahah...SY55, I have an old SY85, I like the SY series, amongst a small collection of rack synths, and my latest toy a nice Arturia MiniBrute. You have a nice collection of music gear there, I always wanted a D5, or Tascam DA20, but never did.
I have recently moved, so I may post some pics once I get the studio back up and running. It's almost there, I want to get the Falcon included in the studio now too, as it has been in hibernation for far too long. My humble Atari ST has always been in the studio, and I'll continue to use it as the MIDI sequencer, I like it's stability, and plus I can use it with MIDEX. Actually I think I am going to switch to using the Unitor, Combiner and Export options, they are just a bit better built, and connect better than my MIDEX which doesn't connect the tightest. The MIDI ins always annoy me on the MIDEX too, being too close together.
