What is the problem with you rayblaster evangelists? Why do you feel it necessary to iterate five million times how great it is and how unrivalled? I'm sure it's cool but why that overprotectionism?
If you were involved with Rayblaster from the start during Beta testing, creating waveforms for it from scratch, by doing tons of single cycles of other synths and finally creating around 160+ presets and then audio demos you would be a bit "overprotective" too maybe.
Ingo. I actually understand a situation like that VERY well.
And I have nothing against Rayblaster.
But the way you go about it is way over the top. It is my impression from the threads I read that you are actually doing Rayblaster a disservice, and yourself as well, as a valued and experienced member of this community.
Imagine every developer/sounddesigner/betatester on KVR would flood every thread where his product was mentioned
. Flood it in a way that nobody else can say anything without being told what his or her tool is doing better and more of and more flexible and whatnot.
You imply by the way you word your posts, that nobody else has any clue about anything and a person not in love with Rayblaster is simply somehow uninformed about it, which you then try to solve by repeating the facts. Again.
Every person is different, has different interests and a different taste. What sounds good for one person may be bad for another. KVR is one of the places to meet and exchange ideas, not to preach absolute truths.
Sure we all get emotional (thanks god we do!) but the moment you try to completely dominate a discussion, the discussion dies, since it first has to get rid of the dominator before it can continue.
This is the point where certain people start to attack you back.
You make yourself into a target.
But you create that vibe yourself.
If you would just give your opinion on the topic all would be fine and welcome
On your own Rayblaster thread I simply unsubscribed after a while, since it wasn't interesting anymore after a while and I actually felt bad for you. I had a hard time reading your posts since you seemed to be so hard and overzealous regarding Rayblaster.
But I feel frustrated if you highjack a thread where the topic clearly has a much wider focus and flood it with your posts. Again, it would be absolutely cool if you add your experience and wisdom like everybody else, but like in the case of harmor, I had the impression you didn't know that much about it and were just telling me off. Some of your other posts simply are not related to the original question at all.
I am very happy for you that you found a synth that you really love.
I have several as well.
Those may overlap or not.
I don't write this as somebody with no clue about the problem.
I had and have a similar tendency myself.
I too had and have to learn to breathe...
I hope this can be taken in the spirit it was meant to from a fellow human
Cheers and Carpe Diem,
