Colossus? General Midi Sounds?

I am curious if there is a way to get decent sounds for general midi. I am a jingle writer, and many times do a demo for a client prior to them buying. I would like to get something that allows me to get a decent sound...maybe even good enough to use period!

I would prefer something with effects already, as I'm not en engineer, but if something like colossus simply needed an overall reverb or something, that wouldn't be the worst either.

Any suggestions?

Also, is anyone with colossus or something similar willing to do a quick recording if I sent over a midi track? I'm not looking for mixing or anything, just a recording of something I've already done for comparison.

The bang for buck with Steinberg Hypersonic 2 is really high, you should check that out. Wild variety of great patches and really good drums/kits.

I was pretty pumped when I check it out, but then went to the steinberg forums. I'm not sure anyone got that program to work.

Other alternatives??

people seem to like colossus especially since the price dropped.
