Hey Figuerol, I just got my vintage keyboards q-card today, and my first impressions are that it is a good quality card, with many useful instruments for keyboard players. As has been said before, it does lack in the Rhodes department. It has around 10 rhodes instruments, all of which sound weak without enough bass (although it might be my headphones). However, the sample sound better than the stock ones, so I will try to work with it to get a good result.
There are some really neat electric pianos, though, including great wurlies and some nice, clean, clear generic e.p's.
The clavinets sound much better than the stock QS', they have that nice, throaty sound.
The mellotron strings, choir and flute aren't very good. Actually, they suck compared to some samples I downloaded from the internet.
The organs are decent, mostly more of what's in the stock banks, but with some nice, clear, extremely high-pitched combo organs.
My favorite suond is this one called tube-screamer, which is like the QS' Feedbacker, but much more crunchy, clean, and distorted. I couldn't stop playing with that one.
Overall, it's a good card, I would definitely take it over the Latin Q-card. But, my guess is it would be less useful for the home-musician kind of person, because the sounds, being keyboard sounds, tend to lend themselves more to gigging with a rock or funk band.
