199 EUR (for me) for a dozen high quality instruments that all sound very good is not a bad deal. Accurate emulations or not. But sure, I admit. There's a certain amount of fetishism in there. But that doesn't make it less sexy.
Do I need this stuff ?
Well, of course not !
As most of you guys I already have more then double-plus-enough.
But being a human doesn't mean one is rational all of the time. It's about being emotional too.
And so, we go to the cinema to watch some silly Avengers movie before going to the bar for a pint of four. Eventually having some junk food before going home with whatever her name was.
Wast of money ?
Don't know. But was probably a good time.
And sometimes, if one can afford it, it's perfectly OK to spend some money just for the feel good thing.
And so, for me - in this case, with the Arturia deal, it's more about the fetish side of it ( the idea that those emulations of famous synths somehow, and by some reason, will make me feel good ). To be absolutely honest.
Weill I take it ?
Because I spent my money on a date. Married with children. And soooo.....be careful about your choices...
