    software:
    (condition: recommended is a good PC and 128MB or even 256MB RAM):

    if you're not afraid of learning the program, buy Propellerhead's Reason ( $450); it's an all-in-one package including a sequenser, a virtual sampler, a good VA synth, a decent drum module, and lots of fx
    => but it requires a little bit learning time

    see: propellerheads reason info & downloadable demo

    hardware:

    if you go into hardware synths, it will take much more $$, so if you're new into it, maybe it's more safe to try the software first
    => very popular all-in-one synths are the Akai MPC2000 ( $1400 ) or the Yamaha RS7000 ( $1500 )

    Hope this helped a little...

    most IMPORTANT tool

    The most important tool is...

    ... your ears!


    Of course, it's hard to play some of those tricky piano chords with them.

    That's right, KasioRoks, but for playing a sampler, you need a sequenser too (and a master keyboard), isn't it ?

    So a stand-alone sampler is not the ideal solution for -Tr!PpLe H-'s question ; I think the sampler workstations are a better solution (like I mentioned above: Akai MPC2000 or Yamaha RS7000)

    Am I wrong ?

    No you're not wrong, I think I just saw the question a bit different. I was thinking in terms of a single tool that can do the job of synths, bass, drums etc.

    BTW why did you change your name THM?

    my nickname from my student years was (translated to English) "The Mariner"; I have a Flash-site under the name The Happy Mariner (THM) too, and my future records will act under the name THM

    and "fat_boy_pier"... everybody says : "hey, that's like Fat Boy Slim", while I had that nickname already when Fat Boy Slim was a Housemartin... :-D
