after some reflection, i realize that it's: ok to have 19 synthesizers; 20 is too many. also, it's ok to have 20 compressors in series; 21 would really be overdoing it.
always one plugin short of perfection...

I do exactly jack if i have more then 6 options. its not fun anymore. At the moment I've accidentally collected too much gear and deciding what to unload. Its stupid having this much gear. It's not productive, and half of it overlaps. Your mind cannot handle that many options. you wind up just pulling up various instruments and filing through presets for hours.

True. I hate it. Would confuse the hell out of me.

I don't have 20 great sounding software synthesizers anyway. :lol:

are there, in fact, that many 'great sounding' software synths? (because i can only think of 8 or 9...)

does more than one instance of a 'great sounding' synth count...as more than one? (in which case, i have thousands of great software synths, and every song i do needs every one of them)....

Love is universal. Needs no translating. Go forth and synthesise.

Has 'wicked' gone out of fashion, I never liked 'cool' very much?

, but seriously what about synthesizers?
Well... if you had 20 sick synthesisers then you’d need to do something about it.

indeed, starting with a second mortgage :hihi:
You can afford a mortgage? Obviously you don't own 20 synths. :hihi:
