Thanks for the reply, I will be using theme live in the sense that I wish to use them as a normal voice, (The Wersi allows the voices of the VSTs to be mapped to a button as if it was a normal Wersi voice or Akai sample) but not for gigging as I am solely a Home Player.
I was considering Colossus but it is a general purpose VST and therefore has sounds that I would probably never use, whereas the Garritan samples consist of the main type of instruments that I like.
Both the Garritan and Colossus have the advantage that I can also purchase the upgrade version of Kontakt 2, which makes it significantly cheaper.
I very seldom use the modulation wheel, (I assign most of the effects to the after touch on the keyboard) so that should not be a problem. (I also use a separate Expression/volume pedal)
Live entertainment, Real Ale, Great Scenery, Great Beaches, why would anyone want to live anywhere else (I�m definitely staying put).
