Agreed, expressions of joy are always nice to read. That post, though, felt to me less like joy over using the real thing and more like a sarcastic dig at people who don't. But I've misread posts and emails before, so who knows...

I'm with you on the important stuff, though: these days, I prefer rhodes samples to the real thing, and to my ears sax samples (and horns in general) sound like crap.

Brass may, in fact, be the one family of instruments whose sampled ilk are woefully inadequate if the goal is to have something living and emotive in the part. Pianos, drums, and guitars can all be done quite credibly on VI's now, but horns... no dice!
