Really doesn't sound special to me, sounds like a cheap VST

So which is it then, as you seem mightily confused here, is it a cheap sounding VST, or a big sounding hardware synth.

I give you a clue the synth is hardware with the FX only coming via the VST software, you really do across as a complete numpty here.

Well after having the Trueno for a couple weeks, finally have it setup way I want it, even dug out my old Novation Nocturn to control it, this thing for it's size sounds great, quite deep too in places once you start playing with controls.

Ok so how does a cheap vst sound?
All cheap software synths sound slightly thin and are not as big sounding as hardware synths. It's just a fact.
All cheap analogue synths sound slightly thin and are not as big sounding as expensive analogue synths. It's just a fact.

I corrected that for you

Definately, its a great little synth, I got it at Β£90 bargain and great sounding, and no issues setting it up, in fact its part of my Ableton default template nowadays.

Tell me about it.. I've considered Synthmaster to be one of the very best softsynths I have a license for. Now I learned that against my own experience, it sounds slightly thin and not as big as hardware :lol:

Yeah, who knew? Honestly, it does my head in that anyone can say such patently stupid things and actually believe them. I remember the first time I hooked up a MIDI keyboard and played a VSTi like a hardware synth. It completely changes the way you think about them. When they are just pretty coloured interfaces you interact with using a mouse, they really don't feel as special as a hardware synth but once you can play them on a real keyboard, using a mod wheel and aftertouch and all the rest of it, that feeling goes completely out the window and you wonder why you bother with hardware at all.

No, it's not. What may, however, be a fact is that you are a fool. How can you possibly think that any but the biggest, baddest, bestest hardware synths would have a hope of competing with softsynths that can bring 40 or 50 oscillators to bear on a single note? Most hardware just can't compete with that. I had a go at using the Analog Keys on our last album but, ultimately, I got better results from Hive and Thorn, so ultimately I discarded the hardware tracks.

Relax..I wasn't being so literal. I was merely giving my opinion based on audible phenomenon. This USB thing doesn't show for itself as hardware analog if it doesn't sound like it is. Ok I believe it is a fact that let's say Access Virus TI does not sound like the likes of Spire. Even though that's virtual analog. The virus hardware sound is unmistakable to me.
