Reminds me of the problem with a piano .... not enough presets, and people all start sounding the same
Well said Anthony ......mind you we can't be far from having "The Steinway Artist Series: The Glen Gould Presets, with Humming"
I think Wusikstation is an interesting one, not terribly easy going (regarding the installation of / figuring out what it can do) but it's quite unique.
Does indeed look interesting Pete.....I see a mac version is coming out.
These past few days Ive been really enjoying NI's Massive demo. Sort of overlooked it because of its name thinking it would be all about being Massive and analog emulating, Well it can be but its so much more. I really like the sound, interface & drag and drop modulation.
I agree. I enjoy playing around with soft synths, but nothing gets me going like grabbing and twisting the knobs of a subtractive synth and making the hair on the back of my neck stand up.
I find it's nice to just use a good subtractive synth now and then, rather than these big-sample-based-pre-made-music monsters.
Absolutely......however the one environment that is a beautiful combination of software & hardware is the Virus TI. I feel I can get much deep into the synth via the software gui than the hardware interface, that is until the Virus starts messing up my audio AD/DA interface and taking over core audio et el.....but all this is another story.
