    The Alesis Andromeda is pretty solid for just about everything.....if you can get your head around it.

    Softsynths wise:

    Atmosphere. Worth it just for 3 or 4 patches. Listen to the accoustic hybrid strings they'll bring a tear to your eye. 100's of other good patches as well if you can be arsed to set through them all.

    Also good: Absynth, Fm7, Rhino, Crystal.
