2 things:

a) you will not sound anything like robert fripp with that setup.

b) that's a lot of money. perhaps you should listen to what 80s new 
wave Fripp said about "small, mobile, and intelligent" before following 
cranky old Fripp into the 
hitherto-unoccupied-by-those-who-were-not-Berlin-School area of ambient 
gear bloat.

i mean, i guess i did have to learn how to sound like "God save the 
queen" before i could sound like "That which passes". with a keyboard.

hopefully i'll have my own sound. until then the Fripp pastiches
