Were you ever turned off by a synth that visually carters to a specific style/genre?

Blade is horrible. Every single preset on there was a wobble and not even any decent ones. No thanks Mr Papen.

Blade, Little Phatty (the name, not the synth), and Subboombass. The unholy trinity of bad image. If I ever got a Little Phatty I'd probably put a sticker over the name and call it something else. Also, Sub Phatty o_O. WTF? Imagination, hello?!

There's something about the name Subboombass which is awkward and makes me imagine Rowan Atkinson doing his "boB" voice emphasizing all the "b"s :hihi: (Go on, try it!)

Cyclop is a synth I was determined to hate due to the advertising material but I found it actually really fun and deep, with a refreshingly new GUI.

little phatty is a good lookin synth, but the name invokes imagas of chubby little kids not an analog synth. and blade has nice artwork but looks like a WOW RPG interface instead of a synthesizer. :hihi:

Diva
i hate the term , and also i hate being associated to anything to do with luxury, or anything overly pretentious etc..

but it didn't stop me buying it. and it's my favourite softsynth...but i erased Diva from the GUI and personalized it to look more geeky and humble.


skinnable GUIs are a big plus for sure.

Tyrell and Nexus 6 are a nod to Blade Runner, I actually think that's real cool!

Blade Runner is on the list of things that dislike of causes distrust in me.
