Perhaps you'd like to join the firing squad too?Echoes in the Attic wrote: ↑Fri May 22, 2020 7:24 amActually it doesn't show this at all. Both of the categories that indicate someone will not buy Obsession and will buy Arturia, indicate only that. It does not give a reason. Anyone who would never have bought Obsession, but may enjoy Arturia products (especially ones that already own the v collection), could have still fallen in these categories, and probably do. So unfortunately the poll tells us exactly nothing. In order to claim what you are trying to claim, you would need to know that someone would have bought Obsession in the absence of the Arturia version, but because the Arturia one was released first, has decided to only buy the Arturia version. Even if there was a category for that, it still wouldn't guarantee that one of those people wouldn't change their mind and buy Obsession also once they demo it, although at least you could forecast based on people's currently opinion of the situation.
The reason people are giving you crap for this and saying you are bullying etc. (though I think that's a bit far), is that you wanted to prove this point and made an ambiguous poll that it biased in this direction.
Can I absolutely PROVE that if no Arturia version was released people who bought it would have bought Obsession instead? No, of course not. But pure logic, reason, and simple statistics almost dictates that there will be a percentage of people who were waiting for a "good" OB-Xa clone and would have bought whatever was available first.
You cannot absolutely categorically deny that. I myself am one of those people. If Obsession isn't out before the 9th and I really want the OB, I will buy Arturia's and therefor will have absolutely no use for Obsession.
I'm the only one on this planet who feels that way? Several people in this thread, even if the poll is flawed, have expressed the same sentiments.
Arturia coming out with an OB clone right now cannot in any way help Synapse Audio's cause. I'm sure Richard, given the choice, would have preferred Arturia NOT come out with this synth just before he's ready to release his. Nobody in their right mind would be jumping with joy over this right now.
