Have keyboard OEMs lost the plot?
      13/07/11 09:16 AM
Okay - depends on the plot I guess... if its to make as much money as possible - they're probably doing alright.

However my post is rather about the futhering of the 'instrument' as a true 'realtime-skill-required' bonafide instrument. There have been attempts on occassion to address the aspect through the addition of levers, knobs, pads, beams etc, but for all the investment in technology we're no better-off with a controller and well-specd laptop?

Lets take the ubiquitous guitar sound patches - present on all pcm based synths since ..forever.. Yet the ability for the player to actually coax a 'realistic' performance is more an excercise in clever sequencer programming than actual performance (yes I've tried - and I actually play real guitar as well)

This is not news too many, but after 3 decades of technology, is more flash memory and touch screens all we have to get excited about?
