Yes, I fully understand.
VA is the fad of this decade (and it is not bad, it relaunches the interest of these old synths for more inspirations in the composition steps from the younger composers and it gives us, older ones, the opportunity to get for not expensive some synths of our youth that many hadn't the ability to afford).
That said, I'm convinced that fundamentally the future of the synthesis will be the additive synthesis and some new declinations of it which will appear as the power of the computers will keep on progressing in the next years. And I'm pretty sure that it is quite good to begin to occupy this niche as of now, at least with a first plugin perfectly appealing, to be already there firmly sat when the other developers will come to begin to invade that niche. Because at this moment you'll just have to follow their ideas by improving your synth already known and already fully tested for a while. It is always good to be already there in a niche when the others arrive to try to take it. It is already the case with Vertigo, it just has to get a modern GUI (and a campaign of promotion to recall its existence to the users). Because it will be an even better asset for the popularity and the rate from the users if at this moment when other new synths will arrive Vertigo already has a modern GUI and already a good ranking, not appearing old compared to these new coming additive and spectral plugins within the two or three next years. Remember that some brands are already working on this synthesis to modernize it. To be already there and perfectly sat will be a great advantage.
