    What sample tank do you have? cause even sampltank L has some Wurlitzer samples in there.

    Depends on the rnb your going for, the new skool rnb ( pop music ) has everything synths guitars bass keys anything really.
    Trad rnb you will find more guitar horns keys ( piano organ rhodes ) drums bass mainly with some extra winds and strings.

    Try find a nice B3 organ sample, if you find a good one there great for some rnb stuff, a good trick with organs in rnb is to double the bass line with the lower keys.
    When I stab you in the eye with a mirror can you see my reflection.

    NI's B4 is an excellent hammond emulation; even the Express versions can be enough if you're not that much into tweaking.

    Reaktor is more of a sound design tool/lab - it comes with a lot of pre-built plugins as well, but I wouldn't recommend it unless you're willing to spend a good deal of time learning to build your own stuff. It's very good but time-consuming.

    That's a good attitude. Seems like most "producers" just want everything right now, preferably pre-made and free, and still expect the highest quality.

    Reaktor is certainly worth it, but it's quite simply going to be overwhelming and confusing at first. Actually it just got a lot more complicated with the release of v5, when they introduced the Core Technology elements in it. Too bad they don't have a demo of it yet.
