Realistically there isn't one. Of course the list is endless in terms of music instruments. For all out MIDI, then arguably in Atari circles the Falcon with the specific Falcon peripherals that have been mentioned before, but then in terms of pure MIDI, some would say the TT for crunching, but then for software compatibility the ST with SMP24 / II, M04 or MM1 etc... You can record audio on ST, TT and Falcon in different ways with CAF..., or with CBX's, but then you can go Digital Multitrack route. So really, there is just your choice that is right for you.
Personally, I use an ST as my main, with SMPII, Midex and a MIDI Xtra with Cubase, all in all 10 outs and 12 ins. The Falcon I have connected to the ST, and that runs with 5 ins and 8 outs, all running:
-Roland DS30A monitors
-Akai MPC2500 SE
-Novation Bass Station
-Novation Drum Station v2
-Elektron Machinedrum SPS-1 UW MKII
-TC Electronic M350 effects
-Gameboy with MIDI
-NES with MIDI
-C64 with MIDI
-Teenage Engineering POs
-Mackie 1604VLZ4 mixer
Like yourself and Atarieterno, still like rocking the Atari's.
