There is a feature that may be of interest on the Sweetwater.com site.
The "State of the Art: Insider's Guide to Virtual Instruments features a Panel of Industry Experts including Northern Sounds members Eric Persing, Dave Kerzner, Nick Batzdorf and yours truly (are all those guys really 'experts'? ).

The panel discusses where we're at with virtual instruments, the benefits of virtual instruments, standards, and where we're headed in the future. "The result is an interesting commentary on the state of the virtual instrument art, and an intriguing compass pointer toward where the state of the art will be in the near future."

"We will see some virtual instruments move away from the computer. I foresee literal plug-and-play virtual instruments on a USB key complete with operating system where you plug it in any device and play. And we can see imbedded virtual instruments as portable devices."
