Thats a pretty good take on the debate i feel. I've often wondered about the whole analog
thing and adding random noise and distortion. It cant always make something sound better.
It must depend on so many factors. Id say i probabaly have a similar angle regarding
outboard gear. Id want there to be a good noticable difference in what im doing out of the
box rather than subtleties that most people are never going to recognise. And i might even
be fooling myself. I reckon there is a lot of that going on. The brain sometimes has
already decided things. Some people want it to sound better because theyve just spend 3000
on a new unit. So it does sound better to them.
