I may be missing what you’re getting at Paws but I feel the same way about Notator and
its way of doing things, and companies like emagic.
It’s designers and
developers who invisibly influenced how things are done and gave us the tools we had/have
available. These more or less configuring the music tech landscape through the solutions
they found and ways of doing things which hadn’t really been done before. Down to the
little quirks / details in the programs which have become wdely implimented eg the little
tool box still found under the cursor in LP7.
I've still respect for the
ST designers who thought to have the MIDI interface on board. If they had not maybe emagic
and Lengeling’s associates and the cubase guys would n’t have developed for it in the
way they did.
The S950 / S1000 and the casio cz range which were among the
first samplers / digital keyboards within the reach of many and gave us tantalizing
glimpses of the technologies we would one day have and now take for granted.
It’s good to be aware of these things and i think that’s why I enjoy the features on
the history of the industry like the several issue one on Roland and others.Best wishes
alternatively i've missed what you were getting at by a couple of miles
