Yes, definately a long term thing. Even though I typically do not like the idea of having to tweak each and every voice, etc. This has peaked my curiosity. I guess it's the idea of not being stuck with whatever the kb companies decided to come up with. And at the prices they want to put on them. The new Korg, Roland and I'd be willing to bet the Tyros 2 are going up in a price range I don't want to have to be addicted to buying them when I'm sure none of them do exactly what I want and there will be all kinds of things on them that I would have no interest in.
Even the idea of just using Super Quartet interests me a lot. To me there is nothing better than a great sounding combo.
Found another free VST host. It's a very good recording software that I've used. Here's the link with reviews. http://www.download.com/Audacity/3000-2170_4-10325373.html?tag=lst-5-14
