    none of them are particularly fetching but an mpc500 is a proud proud machine. from what i understand maschine is a souped up mpc kind of thing? could be thats the way to go. then there is mistabishi working out the emx which hes managed to get sounding pretty good but i think youd be disappointed

    yeah a virus B or C or any virus really. an e-mu e6400 ultra sampler. a mackie desk. reel to reel tape machine, or normal tape casette works too. wonder if VHS works. bet it does. those are all pretty nifty things for making dnb.


    yes it was as a matter of fact tony. i do not see why that is such a big deal, in fact, i resent the notion. your a mong btw.

    I'd suggest Machine.
    Its basically a MIDI controller.
    Its like having an MPC with complete software integration. MPCs are mainly used for sample based compositions but they are great for having a hands on approach to making music.

    No to Korg Electribe.
    Yes to Akai MPC500 or NI Machine. I'd buy one or the other, having both is a bit overkill.

    And if you're looking for more analog/hands-on gear to produce (and if you have the funds) logikz suggestions are spot on; you can never go wrong with any virus synth.

    If you just want a piece of hardware to control midi you could go with the akai mpc.
    But if you are also looking for a sweet piece of software you should definitely go for maschine.
    the maschine software is freakin awesome, I love it.
    All my productions are made with Maschine with komplete 8 plugins, and no DAW.

    I had Maschine, but I didn't really care for it too much. I found it kind of hard to work within other DAWs with it. Sold it to my older bro.

    Clear case of having more money than you know what to do with it. my advice is to save your cash and figure out what you want.

    This whole thread is really stupid. It's the very same as saying "What is best for cooking? A saucepan, a frying pan, a blender, an oven?"
