Newbie needs advice w/mpc into DAW

What's up board? I'm a newbie to gs production in general. I need help in deciding what kind of set up I will be recording my beats from my mpc 4000 into a DAW. I am planning to get an Imac or macpro and pro tools le. But I'm also going to try other ones out also.(DAW's) I'm getting pro tools because a friend of my out of town works with it and I plan on collaborating with him on beats. That being said I need advice about what kind of interface I should use. I was thinking about the 002 or even a black lion modded 002, but I also heard that I should get analog mixer to boost the signal even more. I was thinking about a onyx 1640 into the 002 then into the mac. Is it important I get an analog mixer or can I get away with the 002 and some kind of outside preamps? I basically dont want a weak signal when I record my beats. I have no problem paying more money for my beats to sound decent, but then again Im not looking to get pro tools hd either. I've saw people mention apogee stuff, but I don't know if it will make that much of a difference for me. I will be mostly just recording beats and sometimes doing vocals. Sorry for the long read but I'm a straight newbie w/ this. Any help is appreciated, thanks in advance...peace
