Well, as far as purely musical equipment goes, use whatever has the sounds
you like. It really doesn't matter. An A-90 and a '1080 should cover most
things unless you're doing some really bizarre synth stuff.
Specifically relating to working on film where your music must match certain
cues in the film, you'll need gear that understands SMTPE code, because a
studio is going to supply a tape with SMTPE code and is going to expect a
result that contains it. Again, there are multiple choices here, so go with
what works with you and your system and your budget.
Sorry I can't help more but I only have a basic knowledge of this. However,
I'm sure if you did some searches in Google you'd find far more useful info
