Spending $6,000 for a couple of voices and utilities that don’t objectively sound “better” than plugins or VCV Rack but then say that a $30,000 modular is a bridge too far, in my case, would be silly. If I had the space and the money, I would have all the synths!
No no no and no, I cannot, in any way, see the value of this thing, and I'd love to hear any future music that's been made with it, that's of any value, or that pushes any boundaries whatsoever.
Sorry to be so negative, and remember, it's just the way "I" feel, and all this stuff is just getting a bit beyond it for me.
This is a "hyper-instrument" and just like the Fairlight, the Moog Modular, and the Synclavier, there were very few musicians who could afford them, and out of those people even fewer did anything worthwhile with them.
