Love the NeoSoul Rhodes.
Would you say it's your favorite Rhodes emu, Jay?
Yes, but a few points.
1. I don't own Keyscape. I played it briefly at Steve Porcaro's studio and was impressed by the amount of different kinds of excellent Rhodes sounds, but nothing that made me "have to have it."
2. I played a 60's vintage silver top suitcase model for many years during the '70's and so when I think Rhodes, I think Stevie Wonder (and Herbie Hancock.) So my acid test is I close my eyes play "Too High", and then turn on the suitcase panning and play "All In Love Is Fair". I then move on to a grittier preset and try some Donald Fagen type stuff and finish with a stage Rhodes for Elton John's "Daniel." No controller feels like the Rhodes keyboard so I cannot completely get back there, but if it sounds like I think it should sound with those, I am in.
3. I like the Wurlitzer electronic piano emus less. I think that the Indiginus Wurl-e Studio captures the two Wurlitzers I owned ( the older blond one and later sleeker "Carpenters" one) better.
That said, I have the Dexibell Vivo S7 and it does those beautifully, as I think you can hear on my NYE concert. Their latest OS update, Aqua Vivo, supposedly nowa llows you to record from it with its sounds both as MIDI and audio with a single USB cable, but I haven't tried doing so yet.
