If using a mouse or tapping in notes via a one octave controller is the limit of your physical musicianship, no need for a HW synth.
I don't really get the point of what you're saying, and it seems like an unfair assessment anyways. BONES has said elsewhere that he plays synth parts on stage. So clearly he can play well enough for his needs:
So what difference does it make, anyways, how you get the notes into your songs? I don't think many classical composers played every instrument of the symphonic orchestra. Does that make their music less accomplished if they just drew the notes onto staff paper with a quill, instead of playing all the instruments themselves?
