    No, as long as you edit at least one preset. If you did not, then you are a preset jockey and therefore a horrible excuse for a human being


    What's a preset?

      Well... MAYBE.

      Counter-example: I work wood. I prefer to use hand tools over power tools. Does my end-product look any better? Probably not, but I got a lot more enjoyment out of the process.

      So sometimes the finished product isn't the point. Sometimes it's the enjoyment of the process, and what tools you use definitely play a part in that.


      Yes and that is exactly the same reason I (sometimes) like real/pure voltage control. Not because the results are "superior" in any way, but because it's a (slightly) different way of working that can be inspiring under the right circumstances.

      Other times, the precision of digital (and I'm not talking about the sound but about patch design, primarily) is supremely preferable because the relationship between choices I'm making and results are much clearer.

          You said most.... that means not all. In which case you prefer analog? In my case a moog voyayer will definitely sound better than any VA synth in the sense that it

              It's all about frame of reference. Thanks! I haven't had that good a laugh in a long time.

                      I already tried serious - see post #2 in this thread. It apparently got this reception:
                      Yours, in an altered context, was definitely more:

                            I like my Moog Voyager. It does some kewl thing that my VA's can't touch. OTOH, its guitar and electric piano sounds are not as good (imo) as the ones on my Nord Modular G2.

                              Yea, I said "most" because some VAs out there just sound bad.


                              To be fair, there's one or two analogs that just sound bad as well.

                                There are indeed lots of things that analogues can do that VAs can't, sonically. But, I produce EBM, Aggrotech, Electro-Industrial and so, for my needs, VAs are my favorite choice. The ones I'm fond of just have a slightly more digital sound, and that's exactly the way I like it.

                                For other types of music, I do prefer analogues, but my heart belongs to aggrotech in the same vein as Velvet Acid Christ, Combichrist, Funker Vogt, Grendel, Cenobita, Wumpscut, etc etc.
