Does Softube Modular count?

Is it an emulation of a modern analog synth?

My guess is because they're not very marketable. Best to emulate a synth everyone's heard of or do something that fits into the Sylenth/Spire/Massive market.

It is emulating actual hardware, right? If so, then yeah, it counts.

Hive is the sound of modern analog emulation IMO. Most of the newer analog hardware is a digital hybrid or made to sound cheap anyway.

i'm hoping more companies jump on the Softube Modular train.
i also wish Softube would invest some decent time in improving patch management for both Modular and Heartbeat but that's another issue eh

keen for some Pittsburgh Modular emulations :)
they're probably too "cool" for that stuff :P

Some modern analogs are certainly tempting :) The main argument in favor of vintage synths is their scarcity and high price though, simply out of reach for the majority of music producers. So the only way to preserve those sounds and make them accessible for everyone are good emulations. On the other hand if people want the sound of e.g. a Microbrute it is not that expensive and available in many music shops.

Err... nope, surely not. :) Or would you invest tens, more likely hundreds of thousands in the development of a analog synth, just to make it sound cheap in the end?
Good synths don't have a sweet spot. They ARE the sweet spot.

No, you invest as little as poss and hope it sells well before anyone notices how crap it is :lol:

Maybe true for Akai Timbre Wolf, but, for anything else? Hm. :) Ok, maybe "hundreds of thousands" was pretty exaggerated. I think the team which developed the Deep Mind for Behringer was only a handful of people too. Still, should take time, and a moderate amount of money, and you'll surely don't want to develop it to sound as crap as possible.

Well, imo, the DS stuff is just rehashed old crap that rides on the coat tails of the golden years.... not much R&D required, just a name on the casing to try and convince ppl they are getting a masterpiece...which they are not....
