Sample libraries on the computer killed the rack-mounted-rompler market.

I'm using a Kurzweil 1000 PX and SX. They both sound really nice and have a wide palette, including some synth sounds (think Laurie Anderson). You could find either for about $50. The velocity response is great. I wonder if people will discover these one day. . . Everything in my studio costs stupid money except these. I found them for free and love them.

Yup. I used to own an Emu ESI4000, so after transferring my library I have all of the Proteus series in Kontakt.
