I am soliciting opinions (really not \"trolling\") on the effect of software-based samplers on the market for rack-mount purpose-built machines. My observation is that GS, Halion, etc. seem to offer better value than dedicated purpose-built boxes, though those boxes might still be attractive to individuals who are deeply familiar with the keyboard equivalents. Is there any area where the rack-mount boxes are superior to software-based systems (other than stabilty, which is a bit of an unfair comparison given uncontrolled environment of the PC)? Putting the question another way, what might sway a computer-literate, first-time buyer with no interest in owning a keyboard to chose a rack-mount hardware-based sampler over Gigastudio or Halion?
