TweakMotu's BPM (Beat Production Machine) is a great piece of software.  But can this software and an MPD controller really do everything a hardware MPC can do? Check out my review. 

Akai MPD32 USB/MIDI Pad Controller




Great price on a Brand New Akai MPC500


Tweak: Super-easy to play. If you set the key of the song you can't play a bad note. Nice sounds. Does not sound cheap!

Korg KO1 Kaossilator Dynamic Phrase Synthesizer

Toontrack Superior Drummer Software (Mac and Windows)

Tweak: A realistic configurable software drum rig.  The built-in mixer lets you adjust close mics, overheads and allows you to control the bleed from one drum's mic to another.  Add compressors, eqs, busses, in the mixer to tailor your kit to the exact requirements of the song at hand.

Tweak's Take: The Most feature rich TRUE Analog synth ever made? Hey! You know that Virus TI, the V-synth and the Blofelds are NOT true analog right?  Those are "models" of analog synths.  The Moog Voyagers and Little Phatty are true, but like my old Korg MS20, those are 1 voice mono synths. The Alesis Andromeda is a true, polyphonic analog synthesizer, like the old Junos and Jupiters and Oberheims, but with modern features. Alesis Andromeda
