Sure, but I don’t like working all ITB any more. I need tactile controls at times. So...

Life is built on compromises, you just have to work our which ones are easier to live with.Jace-BeOS wrote: ↑Wed Dec 12, 2018 8:02 pmDigital synths (and many portable analog synths!) have been like this since day one of MIDI. It’s like people don’t care (I didn’t grasp it until a few years ago). Those who do care are already(?) playing with analog synths and handling them like you’d do any live performance device (record the audio into the DAW and move on).
No problems with my cables. It’s the resolution.BONES wrote: ↑Fri Jan 18, 2019 5:42 pmI have never had any issues with zipper noise when using my controllers or digital hardware synths so I did a bit of a search, to see if it was real or imagined and found this interesting forum thread - https://yamahamusicians.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=5796
I wouldn’t know about 25 years ago. I do know I’m not totally alone in my complaint today. It’s just a subtlety that few notice or encounter.
Pretty sure it’s just as I’m seeing it. It’s not always a problem. It may even be rarely a problem. Still, I want the option to be free of it on some synths AND have dedicated controls. Thus, analog hardware.
With the mouse? My goodness, there’s a massive difference, and it’s totally physical! The mouse provides zero tactile feedback to the range ends, has no friction or resistance, and no guide for the direction of motion. It’s a blind throw with no feedback. Tolerable for editing. Terrible for performance.BONES wrote: ↑Fri Jan 18, 2019 5:42 pmThere is no reason that turning a virtual knob with your mouse should be any less tactile than turning a physical knob. You do both things with your hand and any differences exist mostly in your head.
It’s not in my head. If you don’t feel the same, so be it. We differ and that’s okay.
When it comes to MIDI control surfaces, the configuration is the annoyance for me. Having to make sure that a knob does what I think it does, before turning it, when it might also be mapped to numerous other parameters... I don’t enjoy changing the wrong parameters and then undoing it (if undo even covers that, because it often doesn’t) and then figuring out where I really needed to be. It’s a major time waste and frustration generator.
Oh I FULLY agree!
Once configured, sure. I’m sick of constantly changing settings, menu-diving, and whatnot. I want to have some gear that isn’t about that model of functionality.
