I am open to making sounds with anything. I use a lot of virtual instruments, and I use a lot of hardware, old and new. Much as I might choose a VI for its specific abilities, or simply for convenience, I'm not blind to the fact that much hardware has a special quality that VIs still cannot recreate, not least of which is the physical interaction.
And I have no problem with that.
VAs are at their very best when they stop trying to emulate old technology and do what they're good at. VIs do not need to try to equal or better hardware - they simply need to take us on other journeys.
All IMO, of course.
Elf is bang on here.. the hardware presents a different journey and while VAs are getting better and offer convenience and recall-ability they just don't offer they same "journey experience" or disciplines that the hardware offers..
Yeah I love Diva and use it all the time but I have much more fun with My AJH modules..
