Ah well, maybe I'll have to get a proper emulation of a rhodes someday...  Thanks for the support guys:)
That's no good!  (from one tendinitis sufferer to another) :(

If you ever get around to a proper Rhodes emulation I highly recommend the Nord Electro - does Rhodes, Wurlitzer, and B3 (with virtual drawbars no less!).  Verrrry nice.

The action on a Rhodes can be changed so you don't have to 'fight' it to play it.
Takes a while cuz you gotta tweek each note.

I'd love to have one but space is at a premium here.
There's a lot of alternatives that sound very good...

Thanks for the support guys.  I have played a nord electro, and I loved it.  In fact, with the AMS payment plan, I may get one soon.  I prefer the way a real one reacts a bit, especially through effects, but if I cant play it, its not gonna work, and anything that endangers my hands or prevents me playing guitar is out of here.

The nord electro is a beautiful instrument. You get your super-accurate rhodes tone, as well as another super accurate rhodes tone and organ and clav and wurli and...

Anyway, yeah, they're great. The keyboardist in my band has one.

If I had a dick, I would have a HUGE boner for the Nord.
