Which soft sampler to use for beats w/ mpd32?

I've just ordered myself an MPD32 as I'd like to get into producing beats based on samples (Letherette/Blank&Kytt/Young Montana type stuff). I'd like to know what to use as a sampler?

I've got Ableton and Cubase, which I can use OKish, and I've also got Kontakt and Reason. I'm really unsure which combination is the way to go for this sort of production, and I'd really appreciate some pointers.

Thanks

Simon

Man, that is an absolute ton of money to spend on the combined cost of Ableton, Cubase, Reason, and Kontakt without really having any idea of what you want to use or how to use any of them really well. You are definitely a risk taker!

If I were in your situation I would concentrate on actually learning to use one sequencer/DAW (that I had purchased) In my case that happens to be Ableton Live. Most modern sequencers come with a built in sampler that is capable enough for electronic drum tracks. So in your case it is mostly a matter of preference between Live and Cubase. If you decide to stick with Live then I would recommend going over the section of the manual on drum racks... I would recommend not picking up more gear (hard or soft) until you can actually use, at the very least, either Live or Cubase
