That's because in most cases you don't have to. That's what a two-layer synth is for. Use shift-drag if you need 4 layers, which is rarely the case.
The decision was based on analysis of many, many presets. By far most presets use oscillator detune to effectively turn two 8x unison oscillators into one 16x unison osc in such situations. But Hive has that out of the box in just one oscillator, hence the Sub is more of a bonus, hence you hardly ever need to touch it.
Sorry, couldn't help it after you doubted the effort I'm putting into answering all your essential questions.Yeah, let's send you donations for typing here
I read your question differently, but that's okay, I'll go with the flow. How many such litmus tests have you performed then, and would you share your results?Nobody is speaking of a clone. However, the famous standard sounds of hardware synths are the litmus test for soft synths in my view.
Would you like to have the honour be the first one to perform the test I suggest in the video below and figure out what kind of interpolation your hardware wavetable synths use?
