I would say you're going to need 2 or 3 studio flashes with stepless power adjustment,

Just out of interest, why 'stepless'?

It's not a requirement, but it makes life much easier. If you need to adjust your flash power by a little less than a 3rd of a stop, it's trivial with stepless power adjustment.

Full stop adjustment isn't fine enough for many situations. 1/3 stop adjustment would be ok, but then what if you want to go down by 1/2 stop?

Thanks, I think it is an old thing, Most recent non-bottom end studio lights are in 1/10th stop increments - too little to notice in one turn.
