Well... If it wasn't a marketing thing, you wouldn't be mentioning Hans Zimmer at all. Of course you want to emphasize that Hans Zimmer did 99% of the Dark Knight soundtrack with Zebra. And, that's fair enough. Some people need that, that's why everyone does it, if possible.Urs wrote: ↑Thu Apr 15, 2021 4:34 amBetting on something being true implies the possibility that it isn't
Shall we analyse the sentence again?
It's a nice marketing story, and, I'm sure it's even true.
So, it's a marketing story in the first place. That makes its factuality a coincidence. You could as well have said "They came up with a marketing thing, but in the end Hans somehow really ended up using it". It's a reversal of causality, effectively negating the truth behind our "marketing story". However, it was never a "marketing story". It happened, and later on we were able to strike a deal that worked in our favour.
Not sure why we even have to discuss it. It doesn't matter if it's coincidence or not. At the moment you state that he uses it, and that his soundtrack was made with it, and, at the latest, if a whole synth (The Dark Zebra) is built around it, there's marketing. It's just stating facts. You act as if it was an insult, and I really don't know why.
And, no, my "even" didn't imply that Zebra is bad. I don't think Zebra is bad. Again, there's defensiveness from your side which has no base in what I said. If anything, I agreed with recursive one, that Zebra (which I didn't even talked about... I mentioned Dune) might not be the no.1 choice for supersaw sounds. I doubt that you had those in mind when you created it anyway.
And, of course, that doesn't mean that noone would use it for that purpose. I just mean that I wouldn't use it for such purposes. And, that all synths which I tried in my life, soft synths or the Blofeld and Jupiter which I also played, are mostly good for some sounds, and lack for others. That's why I have 20 soft synths in my folder, not just a single one.
I know, that's just because I'm so inexperienced that I never learned one inside out.
