Well, if you don't mind being a bit oldskool, the Roland JV/XV series (JV=module, XV=keyboard) were pretty impressive for their time. There's a lot of sounds you'd recognise from Drum'n'Bass/Trance tracks, but the '60s/70s' expansion board is a bit of a goldmine. All the hammonds, mellotrons, rhodes, wurlys and farfisas you can eat. Have a dig around on eBay.

But you'll need a midi interface if you've not got one already.

Others can probably advise on more recent options...sadly my extensive gear buying days are behind me.
I was a victim of goose-flirting the other day.
This bleeding great goose came up to me and wanted a light.
I said no.
Goose, there\'ll be no flirting today.

THUNDERFROG!!!!!!!!

Oh, and my particular WoP (although care is needed to stop you sounding like WoGoWest):

If you eat enough cheese late at night these things become very simple.

(and tragically I realise I don't have any pics of my own...)

Well then:
- go out and buy cheese
- make sure your camera is operational
- eat lots of cheese
- add a few glasses of red wine to it
- take the picture
- show us!!!!  :shock:

I was going to say Logic 8 has been one of my weapons of choice as well.
