What are some good rackmount synths for techno/house?

Currently just running my DX7 thru the electrix repeater, help me get more sonic diversity.

Looking under $500 a unit

Might get Tx81z to replace dx

Is ms2000r worth it?

What are some romplers with those classic rave and house sounds?

Hits, stabs etc?

I used to really like *some of the sounds in the mc-303

Especially those press 1 key for a detuned chord joints

I've got a JV2080 that I got with the Techno card and classic synth card for about 240.00 Will definitely get some of those sounds.

I've been completely amazed by how well my Yamaha TG-55 handles this job! I use it for most of my trance and techno stabs and pads.

It's not very popular, so they're pretty cheap, and even though it is in essence a PCM rompler, it has so many basic waveforms as sounds that it basically acts as a 'real' synth. 2 multi-mode filters per voice, multiple (very advanced!) envelopes, modulation, etc. IMO it's insanely underappreciated.

It looks similar to the other 1U modules with card slots like the roland U-XXX and D-xxx modules but the interface is much more human-friendly.
