I posted a question about Nord Electro options last spring, about the time I ceded my role of sometimes keyboard player to another member of my band. But I'm looking to take the plunge again, hopefully via the soft synth route.<br /> <br /> I'd like to be able to have two dummy keyboards/controllers, and be able to have one set to Rhodes/B3/Clav, and the other to use for cheesy leads a la Jamiroquai & Los Amigos Invisibles.<br /> <br /> GSI looks promising, are there any other suggestions? I'm looking for both controllers & software. I like quality, but am on a budget too.

Highly recommend Propellerhead Reason. Build your own custom synth racks. Aside from some excellent FX modules, it has several different styles of highly programmable synth modules, samplers, and even a drum machine. Fantastic piece of kit.

Thank God for guitars!

GSi was a good choice, best electromechanical old-school keys simulations on the market for the money. Try the donationware versions first, then if you like buy in to the pay-ware versions. Organized Trio is the B3 freebie, and there's some Mr. Ray's and Mr. Tramp for the wurly/rhodes trial.
