I'm after something that will give me usable strings, brass & piano (plus a bit of rhodes, hammond, farfisa type stuff would be great) the sounds don't have to pristine - just serviceable in a full mix. Acceptable-in-the-nineties is the quality level I'd be aiming for.
I'm no pianist and it needs to be cheap as it will be rarely used and I prefer spending money on guitars.
Ideally it will be:
- second hand
- off-the-boil, out-of-date, unfashionable or bulky is fine.
I have a midi keyboard and I don't mind if the solution is software, hardware, rackmount or an actual keyboard.
(I already have an EMU rackmount synth for atmospheric and syn-wavey stuff)
Any ideas? Thanks in advance.
