You said you love Knifonium. You’ve even got it in you sig. You can keep trying to blow smoke up my ass if you want but no way someone “loves” a synth without liking the filter.
Of course you can. 90% of the time the character of the filter is irrelevant. I could play you 100 different synth sounds that we use in our songs and, other than basslines, there would only be a tiny handful where the filter made any meaningful difference to the end result. This is another excellent example of this stupid mindset that if you like something, you must like all of it and be totally unable to accept that any part of it is less than perfect. Well, to put it simply, I love Knifonium despite
its filter, not because of it.
It’s too integral a part of the sound.
Go through the factory presets on any synth and see how many of them don't use any resonance. There are plenty of patches that don't rely on the filter's character at all, just the fact that it's there is enough. Try it yourself with a synth like DUNE. With the resonance at zero, go through all the different filters of a particular type, e.g. all the different Low-Pass 24dB/octave filters, and you will be able to get exactly the same sound out of any of them. You may not even have to change the cutoff value to do so.

Everyone here is like that
No, they're not. You certainly aren't, just look what you said above.
But I’m not the one coming on here and saying how not special something is and why waste the money only to be then later saying I bought it and I love it.
Who did that? I said from the get-go that I loved the sound and the GUI, whilst also acknowledging the pathetic feature-set. That hasn't changed and I certainly don't "love it", I just found a (shonky) justification for spending $79 on it. I'll find a few uses for it, I'm sure, but it ain't Union or bx_oberhausen or JP6K.
I mean hell you just said how you can see a thing for what it is then right after that go on about why didn’t Softube add this, that, or the other. That’s not seeing something for what it is.
Actually, that's exactly what that is. What you're talking about would be appreciating
it for what it is, where I'd appreciate it a lot more if it had more features.

So oddly enough, you might not have gotten that same bass sound out of a real Juno-106, either (or the Roland Cloud version).
Yeah, that doesn't matter to me at all. I never rated any of the Junos back in the day and it's really the bits where emulations deviate from the originals that make them worth having most of the time. Hence my complaint with this that they didn't deviate enough. Or maybe they did, but only just enough.
