TASCAM US 16x08
TASCAM US 16x08

The Tascam US 16x08 gets you a lot of channels and a lot of sound quality for a very attractive price. The routing possibilities are limited, so do check this before buying. As soon as the WDM and mixer panel issues are fixed, and a reverb is added, I'ld rate it all 5's.

Aria Sounds London Symphonic Strings
Aria Sounds London Symphonic Strings

First Violins, which is one of five parts of Aria Sounds’ London Symphonic Strings, is an excellent sounding orchestral instrument with several fine patches — I especially like intensity of the pizzicato and the lifelike smoothness of the legato.

EQ BBE Sonic Maximizer 482i

The BBE Sonic Maximizer 482i uses an interesting adaptive EQ and adjusts phase relationship of various frequencies. What it lacks in controllable functionality, it makes up for in pure and undefinable sweetness. Best used in live situations due to unbalanced jacks.

Roland JP-8080

The JP-8080 is a rackmount/desktop version of the JP-8000 virtual analog synthesizer. The VA synthesis engine is the first of its kind from Roland. Both this and the JP-8000 were the original synths to include a "supersaw" waveform, a simulated 7-oscillator detuned sawtooth wave.
