    Any good suggestions for hardware machines for making good hard beats and deep bass for hiphop? What are anyones thoughts/experiances with rolands mc909? is it worth it for small time production @ home? thanks....

    I'd skip the 909 and get an MPC 4000 then buy some samplez
    or an elektron machine drum with the sampling option
    or one of those Jomox analog thingies
    or a super synth like the access virus Ti, tweak it and sample it

    You should take a look at Korg Electribe MX.It sounds bigger compared to Roland groove stuff(like other electribes).

    Actually, yeah i was looking at an elektribe mx, the blue one right? it sounded pretty cool, nice demos i heard. also some very nice options on it, and i like the vacuum tubes. not too pricey either, it said about 959 canadian. Any sites that sell the access virus or the akai 4000?

    if you want the real $*^t buy an mpc3000

    nothing i mean NOTHING compares to it... not even the 4000

    it's tighter than logic/protools/cubase combined

    Yup AKAI is the ticket.

    Bass - well personally speaking, Access stuff is nice and fat, but I also use Novation and Nord Kit. Aint tried any korg stuff since the Prophecy!

    For bass, Waldorf Pulse or Pulse+ sounds fatter compared to virtual analog stuff.If you want to spend more also check Studio Electronics ATC-1 and SE-1.Yamaha's old FM stuff (like TX802) is cheap and you can get a nice deep bass.
