I have set up a seperate PC as a Softsynth server with a Maudio delta 1010 in it running Stienberg Vstack. I trigger it via midi from logic 7 on my Mac running a mix cube. I connect the digital out of the Synth PC to the digital in of the protools 1622 and and 2 pairs of analoge outs to 2 pairs of analoge ins on the 1622. When I like the sound I print it to audio for processing or whatever in Tools (Logic 7 front end). I have about 52 softsynths but only use about 6. I also have replicated some of them in Logic on the Mac with AU versions.

Atmosphere
Trilogy
Golden
Blue
CS80v
Arp 2600
Plugsound (anything that uses the UVI engine)
Sampletank
Korg collection(I got an ms 10 & wavestation and am impressed)
Kontact
Mach 5 sampler (UVI engine)

Why dont you buy logic pro as a starting point and you get a ****load of synths, a drum machine, good sampler and a synth host in one hit. Then just add the softsynths u like.

PS: the Virus used motorolla dsp's the same as mix cards for tools, so the TDM tools version sounds identical to the hardware. I dont know about the indego and HD though.
