If you on top of that also have curve settings for envelopes you get even more to pick from.
You mean like pretty much every VSTi I ever made? Yeah, fabulous stuff.
I found interesting stuff with amp being just slightly slower or faster than filter in part of transition to sustain level - either in attack or decay part.
Good for you, I mostly find one gets in the way of the other so by taking one out, I can concentrate on getting the other exactly right. I am far more likely to want to adjust the cutoff and filter envelope together which, of course, I can do in both Uno and Uno Pro. Best of all, I can do it with one hand.
If you got pitch envelope as well, even more to pick and choose from.
No, definitely getting into the area of too much cruft now. Simple and focused works best for me, which is why my most used synths, by a country mile, is JP6K.
This is what makes you experiment with guitar+pedals+amp too, to find the spot that speaks to you.
That's another thing I don't do. Ujam's guitar plugins work perfectly for my needs.
But the journey is boring to you, that is kind of sad. Life is a journey, and it's like the only thing you are interested in is end result - death.
No, I am interested in performing our songs at festivals and on tours. You may think about yourself all the time, I never think about myself at all.
All weird to me loving the full process. In your defence I don't have a deadline to be ready, I can let it linger as I please.
The only deadlines we have are those we impose upon ourselves. I daresay it takes me far longer to finish a song than it does you. I would never even think about putting a song on an album that I hadn't spent at least 6 months with and most of them spend upwards of two years kicking around before they are in good enough shape to think about releasing.
You've been using synths for a long time, and use so little of what it offers.
You've probably been driving cars for a long time and only ever used a fraction of their potential. A car is probably just a tool for you, in the same way that synths are just tools for me. What matters are songs and we can make awesome songs without having to use more than the basics. Maybe if you keep at it long enough, you'll be able to do that, too?
So with great anticipation I alook forward to Behringer Pro 800 to be released to get the real thing.
Why? Wouldn't you rather have something that makes sounds no-one has ever heard before? That was the thrill of buying a DX9 in 1983 - making amazing sounds I literally could not have dreamt of previously. Sadly, there hasn't been much of that in the last 30 years so these days I challenge myself in other ways.
Yes, really. That's a Roland softsynth - note the "PLUG-OUT" badge on the front panel. This is what the original hardware synth looks like -

Personally I love the fact that hardware can now be as updatable and flexible as software....some 3rd party developer comes up with some genius new oscillator and you don't have to but a new synths, just upload it!
I am exactly the opposite. I want to buy something and use and never have to worry about updating it or adding extra shit to it or anything else. For me, that is just about the biggest attraction to hardware - it is what it is and that's all it will ever be, so I can get on with using it for what I bought it for.
(PS- Running my UNO through the NTS-1 now so, it sounds fantastic!)
See, even that is more than I'm interested in. I bought some tiny Korg multi-effects unit to use with my Rocket but I never got around to connecting it up, not even once. Too much f**king about. This is it, Korg Pandora, it's smaller than a computer mouse -
