It's not a question of overt positivity here on this forum - there are other places which are much more like that, it's more sometimes there's no point in being negative just for the sake of it, just keep it to yourself. I have to 'bite my tongue' at times, as I am a far from positive person myself.
Of course, everyone is entitled to post whatever they want, irregardless. But on the subject of technical stuff, I'm of the mind that listening to other people's experiences can be a useful thing. It's great that you're very enthused about these things though.
yes well I am afraid I am like that as person, I have a more critic eye especially on new hyped products or synths with different advertisements tricks to prove that it is the most revolutionary thing in the world it has this new Superior audio engine or this super new synthesis with some really cool scientific name bla bla bla
All I am saying is that most synth makers have wrong focus today, focus on the basic elements of the synth good osc, good filters, not finding cheap shortcuts for everything.
The focus is really about anything but what comes in your ear the pure sound..
They put all this energy to come up with new ideas instead of focusing on the most important part... it is because of they think they cannot sell a synth that only sounds good, it most have good new "revolutionary" ideas that some one else have not tried... such as using ipads or put a ssd hardrive in a hardware synth with software and digital samples on ssd... and other nonsense...
Well I think they are wrong...people are still crazy in old analogue synth.. yet all new synths are mostly virtual analogue because of cost reasons..in some cases they might have analogue filter with this naive thinking that digital OSCs sounds as good as analogue, it is such a dramtic difference between digital and analogue OSCs... Prophet 12 is such a good example... Everything is amazing about that synth but no one is impressed with the sound, it sounds like software synth nothing special.. Dave call his best synth is carrier, is it function wise ? if he means sound wise I would be very worried about his hearing... prophet 5 is in an totally different league..
