"I'll tell you what I'm in love with — that Emagic Clavinet. It sounds so cool. I just got the OS X version and it's inspiring. Their electric piano is also very nice and I think the Native Instruments B4 is great. My great concern at the moment is that when I start piling up all these virtual instrument and plug-ins as well as the video, the computer is going to reach its limits. Hopefully they will let you chain up a bunch of those XServe rackmount Macs to get around this. I'd like the whole system to be scalable. OK, you have to learn how to use the software, but beyond that, the technology should just disappear — the technology should be transparent. I don't want to have to think about anything other than my musical ideas."more

I used to love PRO-53. It was one of my go-to plugins for years. NI discontinued the plugin several years ago with the policy of "If it continues to work on newer operating systems, we guess you're lucky". Well, Windows 10 is the nemesis of this old faithful standby. It simply will not work with Windows 10 64-bit. I'll miss it.
