One word: eBay. If all you need are decent standard sounds, you can
pick up a late-80s/early-90s sample player synth like an e-mu
Proteus/1 or a Korg M3r for substantially less than 100 Euro. These
things were built for stage use and are pretty much indestructible, so
they have still years of useful life in them.
