So, if he wants to add more modules, all he has to do is wait for a sales period, and hope that they get on sale What a great advice Of course, he can always opt to shell out $40 or $50 for "each" module
That's your opinion, and you're entitled to it, of course. And certainly the guy that questioned should demo "everything". In that case, he should also demo VCV, which he can get for free, and has the exact same "Mutable Instruments" modules SM has for sale (plus a lot of others that SM doesn't have) also for free. (this shows how "customer friendly" SM is)sacer wrote: ↑Mon Jan 21, 2019 5:03 amI have softube modular and i am very happy with it. My friend has a real modular with doepfer and mutable intruments modules and i can't hear a difference, but for me it is more comfortabe without real cables.
If i play with voltage modular the sound doesn't give me same feeling like on real eurorack, the sound has nothing special. So I feel more limited with 100 VM modules compared to 30 SM modules, that's why he should demo both.
Regarding the supposed "quality", IMO it is more a placebo efect than anything else. I also have SM, and I don't hear any noticeable difference in quality (of course, the other modulars don't have Doepfer emulation modules, but rather "personal" modules, so, they would necessraily sound different. That doesn't mean they sound "worse" - just different. If what you want is Doepfer emulations and other emulations, you will have to pay the premium price. If you will be satisfied with purely (yet excelent) software modules like the ones from Vult, for example, then you have much better alternatives.
Since we are talking modular, that "perceived quality" is highly subjective anyway.
