    not too sure of where to start with that set up. it took me a couple of weeks to refine my setup. i use an apc, midifighter, and a akai mpk25. i use three 'decks' that hold entire songs that are split into sections--'intro' 'bass drop' 'vocal drop' anything of interest. after those, i have one column for acapellas, one for one shot samples--like cymbals with fx/claps--and another for one shot vocal samples. (after reading this this seems like a lot of shit!) i then have another for loops; for example i have the keys from 'we are your friends' just to add some texture to sounds. everything i need is midimapped so i rarely touch my computer.

    search for s4racen's posts and bentosan here on djtt. s4racen has an awesome apc40 template that you could get some ideas from. also look up tom cosm, as stated above, and will marshall. i use his system for setting up bass eqs. good luck, hope this helped =D
