Hi, I am butt new to electronic music, but bear with me as I am fairly technically proficient.

First of all, I am using an old Roland U-20 and a cassette tape 4 track. I would really like to get a drum machine, but it seems there are some interesting hybrids out there.

I am trying to decide what "little black box" I should buy (ie. sequencer, groovebox, drum machine.) Can anybody reccomend a good box or combination of boxes that would be appropriate for a newbie? Shoot should I just sell my Roland, save up my dough and get an honest to goodness keyboard workstation such as a Triton or the Karma?

My music interests lie in dark ambient, experimental, techno, industrial, classical.
