Re: The factory preset conundrum

I enjoy crafting sounds. I'm not broke hearted that my "new" Juno 6 can't save patches, much less load presets. But I'm also aware that whoever made the Tetra presets is better at it than I will ever be. Rolling my own sounds is satisfying, but Vangelis (who used presets extensively) has made much b...
