FM7 and DX7 do not sound identical either.Cumulus wrote:I don't think these statements qualify as dumb. They're just statements of opinion and I would bet someone could make a good argument either way.Raiven wrote:1. Analog synths are better than digital ones.

Those have taken the cake with me to date.
I can't speak intelligently about the FM thing but I could make a good argument for or against digital or analog.
In fact, we could fill entire threads much like the hardware vs. software debate.
Also, based on the small run of tests that we did years ago, I'd be willing to say the DX7 sounds a little bit better than the FM7 at the very least. Perhaps that's one of the dumbest things ever said about synths, then. But I mean, I do tend to trust my ears when there's an audible difference that allows the perceiver to favour one instance over another.
