Favorite Drum Machines?

Hey guys, new to the site,

A few years ago I purchased a large quantity of drum hit samples from nearly 250 drum machines. It has a lot of the classics, multiple models, and even some obscure ones.

I'm getting back into making beats, and it's almost too much for me to process - I have 25,000 drum hit samples. I just wanted to know what are some of your favorite drum machines?

I am interested in producing rock, hip-hop, and techno beats. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Ryan

What software will you be using for starters, or do not know

I have been using the Ableton Push for a while now and it's pretty complex to use and takes time to get used to.

I was going to by the Maschine by Native Instruments but it cost a little extra for less buttons BUT more functions at the same time.

Cheers

Imageline's FPC does the job for me just fine.

Failing that, Xfer Nerve.

The 909 is always a crowd-pleaser for House music, I'm not sure what the preferred Techno drum machine is? I mean I know there's no hard and fast rules but it's handy to know what's widely used at the same time. For hip hop the 808 was fairly popular back in the late 90's early 2000's, I'm out of the loop now for that genre but maybe it's as popular as ever? Certainly, you can't beat a giant sub-heavy 808 kick for a hip hop track

For rock - as in simulating a 'real' drummer, I've seen many, many positive posts about Steven Slate drums
