    The Boss series is decent. The Dr.5 goes for a little over a hundred used. I sold mine for $150 not too long ago.

    But really, it'd be nice to go straight for an mpc if you really want a drum machine sampler. An emu MP7/XL7 would be good if you want drum machine and rom sounds.

    it seems like almost everyone i've met cut their teeth on a Boss drum machine. you can pick up a used DR5 or DR660 pretty cheap used. alesis sells an SR16 for about 150. Zoom also made a good drum machine a few years ago. not sure if they still make em or not.

    Alesis HR-16 drum machines are VERY cheap. You see them on eBay for between US$20-80 depending on condition.

    The drum sounds are not that good, but the machine is cheap and intuitive to use. It will help you learn a lot of the elementary drum programming things like adding swing to drums and tapping out simple drum patterns.

    And when you get better, and get sick of the drum sounds you can connect the HR-16 via MIDI to a cheap rackmount sampler and use it to sequence the sounds on the sampler.

    And when you're ready, move onto the Machine Drum (stunning) or PX7 (useful).

    I'm not even up on these machines. I took a look at one at a site called www.vintagesynth.com.

    Looks like it ranks pretty high on the gadget desirability meter.

    Would that RED backlit LCD matrix screen spook you out, though?

    Hell, I'd just hook it up to my Regelwerk and edit the parameters from there.

    how far do you want to take it?

    if you can get a software that has a virtual drum machine and you can use a midi keyboard to control it do it.

    other wise MPC 2000XL and the recent versions.

    or get one of recent those synth. workstation where you get builtin sequencer,good sounds, load samples or sampling capabilities
