I'm sure everyone will say, it really depends on the music you make! For what it's worth, the MultiFX is a MUST in my eyes, it'll add a lot of depth to your sound with CV controllable parameters, and it's just a really rich sound.
I might also recommend a SEQ16, it'd definitely make your life easier, and would let you do cool, experimental sequences!
I can answer that: polyphonic sequencing. Or at least, two voices. Since the Beatstep outputs a clock, it can drive timing on the AE as well...and with the Beatstep doing one line, an SEQ16 can do another. And it gets even wackier when you start adding logic, dividers, a TRIQ16, 3CVSWITCH and so on to cook up really complex timing madness. Just remember to run the Beatstep's clock through a 4I/O if it exceeds 5V (and maybe if it does...always good to be safe). Another fun toy in this range is the TOPOGRAF; everyone tends to think of this as a drum trigger module, but the fact is you can use this in Euclidean to drop wild fills and stuff if the TOPOGRAF is connected to any number of other modules THAN drums.
