Hey, any recommendations on a streamlined, easy to use Sequencer?

I got that iZotope BreakTweaker on sale for $9, and the thing can't be more complicated. It's definitely cool and seems like is does good work, if you can work it.

Coming from a rock background, this is all new, but I get the concept.

I'm trying to make beats, well an original rhythm section for some material I got.

I've collected quite a bit of samples for this, so I might need a sampler to tune em to the right key/pitch.

I'm using Reaper, which has reasamplomatic5000 (I think I got that right). I've heard that gets samples in the right pitch.

To be honest tho, I kinda feel like Reaper isn't what you'd think to use for headache free session.

Please advise. I'm open to anything...shit, I'll throw Reaper right in that trash bin, if there's something (within budget) to make my life easier.

How about Atlas or XO? They've a much streamlined sequencers, can use your collection of samples, are very fast and all the randomisation options can really help when inspiration is lacking.
