Hobbyist. I may try to sell something one day just for the heck of it, but have no professional delusions. If I can make something and some people think it's at least respectable, great, but mostly I do this for me.

I mostly buy them then have them. I like knowing they're there and that I could read the manual any time I want.

In the good old days someone would create a thread "What do your VST instruments do to you?
You may think you can fly ... but you better not try

Weird thing to care about..
DJ Warmonger there thinks he is going for a job interview.
Trying to be rational with my life. It's weird to spend a lot of money and time on something that's ultimately useless... :scared:

The poll is missing any options for sound design, creating and/or selling presets, etc. For many people that's their primary use for VSTi's.
The almost last one in combination with the first is for you...
I couldn’t tick the last as I do music, but I am all into technical details as well...
