Even if I were to do that and post it here,you would pick it apart & dismiss it,simply because I didn't use a piece of hardware to do it.
I am not going to waste my time to try & satisfy your psychosomatic delusions about hardware versus software.
I made a suggestion for to explore at least some of the softsynths I mentioned and you tell me to shut the f**k up?
F**k you...go to TubeOhm's website,try the demos and challenge yourself,you goddamn jack-ass.
BOO-HOO! Cry me a river.
PS: You still haven't posted anyhting useful but i bet you know that deep down inside.
PPS: "psychosomatic" delusions? Do you mean "psychotic" delusions? Try to look up the words and learn the difference if you want to look like you have any idea about what you are writing.
I'm fond of hardware myself...particularly my old Korg Triton Extreme with it's built in tube & Kurzweil's VAST engine(as some of the sonic characteristics and presets are very difficult to replicate)...but in the right hands,software developers can nail it down...but starting a debate war and insulting anyone who doesn't agree or has a different opinion than you do and becoming irate at someone to the point of using inflammatory responses as you've done(in opposition to my initial,benign & civilized post),is the most useless thing of all...on your part.
To even start such a thread is not very useful at all(except of course,to entertain your fascination with Analogue Solutions).
For the most part,the only reason I,as well as most other people even posted in this thread at all,was to satisfy our curiosity as to why yet again...some one was frivolous enough to drudge up this dubious,age old pissing contest.
25 years ago,there was a clear dividing line between what was clearly,lush...deep and warm sounding and what was digital sounding...most notably for example,the contrast between say...the Korg DS-8 and the Roland Super JX-10 keyboards.
So...here we are...decades later,& you discover a retro line of hardware synths that are undisputedly wonderful in sonic character....but where I get fuzzy,is why you feel that the quality of Analogue Solutions somehow warrants a debate whereby hairs are split over the marginal if not completely non-existent differences between this one particular hardware developer you mentioned and all of the softsynths that are available currently.
To put it another way,you stating or implying that Analogue Solutions is nearly impossible to replicate with software or that somehow this hardware company is superior to most if not all software...which is tantamount to me proclaiming that my old Korg Triton EX is superior to software(just because Korg never bothered to make a Legacy Triton EX version of it,for computer use).
We understand you love hardware(Analogue Solutions in particular),but behaving like the elitist,pompous prick that you are,does not reinforce your claims at all.
The fact that you have the tendency to speak as you have in an online debate in such a rude and abrasive manner(such as you would never dare do in a pub,for example),over such a petty disagreement...does not aide in your argument either.
The context in which I used the term psychosomatic,was indeed improper(under the stringent rules of collegiate grammar)...but I chose to use it informally,to illustrate your emotional obsession with hardware,which in my opinion,altered your perception of sound.
Well...at least Vurt was bright enough to understand my use of the term & most everyone else got the message I was trying to convey(despite my atrocious misuse of syntax).
A note to Dean,Vurt and Neumanoid....thanks for the laughs guys,you dudes belong on SNL!
