Convince Me Why To Purchase Rapture Pro and Z3Ta-2?

Should I pull the trigger on these two if I already have Z3Ta classic and Rapture Full included in the Sonar Platinum?

    In that case, perhaps you'd be interested in this cool new program called: Pay Off My Debt. (PM for details)

    I know I'm a little late on this one, but I'm sure you noticed a huge sound improvement between Z3TA classic and Z3TA+2. I'm also sure you're going to be quite pleased with both of them.

    Ha you folks are funny.
    I actually ended up nixing this purchase but I do plan on the Z3ta-2 upgrade. 
    I think both products would have cost about 150 which is a night on the town and I'm not a drinker.
    The z3ta 2 upgrade is only about 50 bucks right now and seems like a no-brainer. Heck there is like 2500 presets for the thing.The Rapture upgrade seems a little harder for me to justify.

    I did buy a whack a Waves stuff tonight but that's another story.

    Z3TA+2 is by far way better in sound quality than the original Z3TA, that one is a no brainer to me at least, however there were a few things they did away with like the built in analyzer which would be nice to still have.
     
    Rapture Pro though is really just a face lift to the original Rapture, it's nice that it added Dimension Pro and Rapture together in one synth and the over all layout is a bit nicer but the main reason I went for it was there was a pre-order discount, or maybe it was an upgrade discount, either way I got it for almost 50% off.
