Time for some new music gear

Autumn is upon us and I am getting back into the swing of things for music recording. I had a great session in the studio yesterday and I am sitting on nine songs that are in various states from "complete" to just sketches. I need to take some time over the next couple of weeks and just get these songs knocked out and recorded. 

I am also itching though to get some additional music gear. I am not sure exactly what I am looking for, but probably something a bit specialized. I have had my eye sitting on Craigslist and not much has been popping up. Right now the front runners are two of the Dave Smith tabletop boxes; the Mopho and the Evolver. 

Both boxes I think have a really good long lasting type of sound I could fit into my setup. However, I do have a slight worry that they aren't distinct enough for me. Even with VA synths, how many subtractive synths can I really add to the list? 

The other front runner candidates are from Waldorf. I really am enjoying the Blofeld right now and the Pulse 2 seems very appealing, but again suffers from the same concerns I have with the DS boxes. The Streichfett is also a nice candidate at the moment, but I fear it may be a bit of a one trick pony. So I am a bit stuck at the moment. 

If anyone has some boxes I should check out, let me know.
