We just moved into the studio and we are with a total of 3 (there is also a small modular and a EDP wasp synth + MPC 1000 ). The MX-1 is has been kind of a love hate relation because it does have it's limitations.
What i really like about it is the beat FX you have making a rythm out of a latched cord from the JD-Xi and also side chain a bass loop. Also when you have some Roland/Aira gear you can plug them in trough USB witch i find really handy. I tend to stay away from the master FX because i don't really like the way they sound but instead i use the fx send/return but you only got one so yes thats switching alot of pedals all the time (should get a patchbay i think ).
The DT is indeed the center of operations sequencing all the gear and also giving clock.
The Mx one can record per channel but not really impressed by that because levels are to low and can't have the FX on the master , instead we record the master.
The JD-Xi i think is a really nice synth with a decent sequencer plus a vocoder i can sample into my digitakt witch is alot of fun but already said that going to watch that video right now because of you:)
That said im really in love with my DT and i hope it becomes more stable in the future for live use because it still freezes now and then.
