    Piano, flute, and the Maschine
    because the Maschine is an instrument on its own. Just like the midi fighter.

    Guitars, drums, keys, bass (who cant) all to varying degrees.

    Guitar, drum set, tenor drums (quads/quints), harmonica, bass (I agree with elliot1106."who can't"), clarinet. I've been meaning to learn piano though.

    I think that its necessary for anyone who tries to produce to be able to play an instrument first. Thats why I really don't respect Swedish Fish Mafia. They can't actually play instruments. They just hit keys until something sounds good. Thats the major problem with production and recording today. Since everything is software now, someone can just slap on a preset or turn knobs until something sounds good, but they have no idea how any of it actually works.

    I do play a lot of instruments -- even live in various bands. But I don't think producers need to become virtuosos with instruments. The computer is the instrument. Now, the more you know musically the more interesting music you could produce.
