Well I dont have any Polysynths yet, I sorta manage by linking up all my
mono sources and detuning etc :). Which uses up a lot of gear. The QMF
(Sherman Quad Modular Filter, for J.Johnson's info) will be an extra "Sound
Screwer".

I may well look into selling my MS20 and SQ10 to partly fund this.

So my polysynth options at the moment are, QRack or maybe an Andromeda once
I make a hearing judgement on it and see the price ;)

Oh as for the sound card bit, I dont use a computer for music, I'll usually
play in a polyphonic line manually everything is sequenced or triggered by
hardware sequencers (multiple Doepfer A155's and SQ10)
