    No real place for this here I guess, but it does relate since Id be playing guitar with it. I am looking to get a drum machine to use for electronic-sounding beats and stuff, similar to what Thom Yorke (radiohead) does in his solo album. Not really sure where to begin. Anyone have any suggestions?

    The Machinedrum is pretty pricey (although awesome) and is really suited for live performance. To get the glitchy drum sounds from The Eraser, you may want to go the software route. If you want a piece of hardware, a cheap sampler may also be a good bet as well. The Roland SP-404 is a nice little phrase sampler or you could cop an MPC for a bit more $.
