I think ominsphere looks really dated now days, they need to rethink it all completly, it has been looking pretty much the same since atmosphere.. which is like over 10 years old
The problem is if they drastically change the interface, they'll anger the long-time users. "Don't change what isn't broken," they'll say. Whether or not it's broken is, again, a personal matter. Does it look dated? Sure, the design is kind of grandiose. But I'm comfortable with it, and I can easily navigate through its functions. Just as you are with Alchemy.
Julio, I hope you have fun mangling your sounds. I came across this video recently. The guy is a goof, but it's a good example of what you can do.
On that note, I think we've derailed this topic.
