Hey all - been a hobbyist musician for ages, and have a decent MIDI studio setup (Emu Proteus MPS+, Roland JV-880, Kurzweil K2000R, Roland drum machine, Yamaha FB-01, etc) with MOTU Micro Express interface and Digital Performer software (which I keep upgrading but still operate more or less like original Performer 5 from ~15 years or so ago!). My younger son is a very good pianist and has been using my setup more and more ... so I want to get him set up. Since he plays more than me and is much more interested in exploring the hardware, I was going to have him use all of my hardware. I have a M-Audio Axiom Pro on the way now, and will interface that with Digital Performer. I already know how to interface DP with Garage Band and use those sounds, but am really looking for some help getting some software synths - and that is part of the reason I noted the rack gear I have. My music is some mish-mosh of jazz/fusion/minimalist classical stuff, and so I like a wide array of realistic small band and orchestral sounds mixed with digital and analog synth sounds. I had a really old version of Reason on PC, and that was pretty cool. I have also seen that Korg has some soft-synths that encompass their M1 and Wavestation synths (loved the Wavestation!). I would like something that would work like the Roland synth (which I largely use for a bank I made to recreate my fave Juno-106 patches and also for the Vintage Synth add-in board), and also the classic FM sounds of the FB-01 (basically a budget partial DX-7) ... and whatever else. Any thoughts for me? Thanks in advance! Oh - running on a unibody dual-core Macbook Pro 15".
