The gui design allows me to make sense of modularity,
(of which I know precious little) by it's clarity. Sort of
a drag & drop pedal board, like IK's Amplitube, the old
Energy XT, and some linux patchbay guis. That I can relate to.
U-he Bazille, in contrast, presents an array
of nicely drawn modules, and expects me to know which cable
would be well suited for insertion or removal. Or at least to
experiment/get educated. ( I admit to buying instruments
only for their great sounds) If Bazille had an alternative
Fathom-style connection gui, I'd experiment with it
much more often. But the clock ticks no slower just because
one wants to get smarter
Keeping the connections and parameters separate, allows me to focus
on one or the other, instead of one on top the other.
I'm sure that CM users will love making/modifying
sounds for Fathom
