Some thoughts:

- There are lots of fine DAW's on the market. But Pro Tools is the industry standard and you already know how to use it. Why buy anything else?

- So you want to track vocals, acoustic guitar and electric guitar. You're spending $1,000 on cables and $300 on a spare monitor yet you've only budgeted $99 for a solitary Shure SM58 mic? Nothing wrong with the SM58 but you should audition two or three additional dynamic and LDC mics for use in your studio.

- With a $15,000 budget think long and hard about sound treatment before you build anything. The guys in the "Studio Building / Acoustics" forum here at Gearslutz can give you some great advice.
