Yes, I also hope that this forum takes off nicely.
W.r.t. your pedal question I think it can be possible to do it. As you know the pedal control is in fact a variable resistor. Maybe it is possible to build a second variable resistor in it and connect it to a second cable. Then it would work as two pedals linked together.
And yes, I agree, that the new voices packages are very pricy, although you get a whole bunch of voices and styles. Can you remember the prices of the KN7000 Expansion boards? All 4 boards was also €1300, just for extra sounds.
