Dilemma with spending $$$

OK. so i thought i needed an all in one box, but I don't think thats gonna cut it.

I need something to:

1. Fatten up my synth sounds. (i'm doing a lot of electronic, urban musics)

2. Something good for vox. (any kind of pres better than the ones on my mackie.)

3. Something to compress the vox before it goes into my MOTU 1224. (it dosent have to be phenomenal, just someething so my vocalist doen't clip.)

4. Finally (the most optional one) something to run my mix thru.

and the budget for this is $1900.

i was looking into the Avalon 737, theres a pre, comp, and i can run my 2 mix one side at a time and bounce that...

i bought a Mindprint DTC, but there seems to be a lotta floor noise when i convert from my synths into my sound card. this is definetley not optional...

there were a lotta pros for the AMEK CIB, but this is like $2450, so thats outta the question.

If I were to to it independantly of each other, i was looking into a RNC for compression, an Anthony Demaria 300G DI box to fatten up synth (3 tubes), and I'm sure i can get a good pre for under $800...

any suggestions on any of this stuff?

thanks in advanks
