face it, anything that sounds newage-ish with reverbed choir fairlight-ish sounds in the presets is going to be labeled "dated" its all about weird, abnoxious noises now.

TD made some fantastic albums from second half of 90's onward. Tyranny of Beauty, Transiberia, Mars Polaris, Seven Letters From Tibet, Inferno and several others were all great albums.

Actually 90's was pretty much the pinnacle of innovative sound. Many of the sonically most innovative albums made at that time are still unmatched these days. There's literally nothing these days that comes even close to sonic innovation of 90's music form artist such as Jon Hassell, Brian Eno, Russell Mills, Paul Haslinger, Bill Laswell, Paul Schütze, Michael Brook and most stuff to come out from Real World Records at the time. All featuring heavily digital gear from EMU, Kurzweil, Korg and Roland. Despite having so much technical possibilities popular music (outside the revived prog rock genre) has never sounded more bland, boring and stereotypical. All of that wobbling EDM is pure garbage. Even the 80's, which had very stereotypical sound defined by certain technology, weren't that bad.

Same goes for the so called "cinematic" scores - it's rare these days to find a soundtrack in a movie that would make you want to check it out for listening after the movie. Again, compared to 80's and 90's which had plenty of unforgettably unique and innovative soundtracks, majority of the "cinematic socres" are bland cookie cutter crap.
I just couldn't get on with their stuff from Livemiles onwards. They went too 'new age' for my liking.

The 90s is when electronic genres really exploded, and for me the early part of that decade remains the golden era of techno and house music. When I spoke about the digital sound being of its time I was mostly thinking about its use in popular music, where the cheesiness is most associated with. A lot of oldschool bangers were made with digital synths.

As far as scores go the only ones that really stuck with me in recent years were Jóhann Jóhannsson's score for Arrival, and Zimmer's score for Interstellar.

It works on W7 but yeah, doesn't have 32-bit. It's dead, Jim. More and more new plugins likely won't even support 32-bit because of Mac dropping it on Catalina (it's Occam's razor sort of solution - why support something on one platform that's not supported on another, etc.).

It sounds way cleaner than M1 and WS, and has a better filter, more modulation capabilities, better FX...

Yes, when compared to M1 and Wavestation it sounds more hi-fi.

How many software emulations of hardware older than the Triton do you own ?:shrug:
quite a few. korg's own mono/poly and polysix for example.
while no talent rich kids were wowing taste-less a&r hacks with the latest cheesy workstation canned sounds, artists were pushing these old instruments past their limits, running them through guitar pedals and resampling it, making something fresh and musical.
we need more of the likes of these, devices for musicians - these things were for 9 to 5ers.
we're getting meme'd on, I tell you.
And meanwhile synths like the Triton were found on countless sound tracks created by real musicians. If someone can't do something "fresh and musical" with these types of Workstations or Sample Based synths it's not the instrument's fault. You know by "running them through guitar pedals and resampling". These synths were also used on stage for countless acts from lounge acts to metal bands who actually played instruments.

Like I've said several times already there are more genres than EDM or Hip Hop although I realize that KVR doesn't recognize that fact.
