Stargate's work is almost entirely 'in the box', but they keep a few rackmounting synths and samplers around.

This is a superb unit for studio use and if you are hitting the stage with a midi controller keyboard. Very rich sounding natural instrument selections and sharp synthesizers and virtual instruments allow for a broad scope of sounds. Great build quality and a host of patching options.
