I interested in getting a realistic sounding synth for orchestral arrangements as well as other things such as Rhodes Piano and even Koto ..

Any ideas?

I'll second Reason. Not too much synth wise that you can't do with it...well...nothing you can't do with it.

++ It comes stock with a damn good Orchestra refill (pack).

I don't really like the sound of the Orchestra Refill, but you can buy a pretty good 3rd Party Refill for reason which sounds great (sorry can't remember the name).

otherwise I think there's a plenty expensive Native Instruments set you can buy
