I saw Rush in the late 80s, and was disappointed to see AND hear the absence of the minimoog- I can't remember which digital synth Geddy substituted those parts onto, but it made a big sonic difference-
Fast forward to last year's tour! There were many parts that were triggered samples, but those iconic Moog parts were back, thanks to the LPhatty!
Of course, if software emulations would've existed in 1987, I'm sure I wouldn't have heard the difference- And as far as I know, last year he could've been using the LP to control a software mini- Anyone know for sure?
But it definitely LOOKS cooler having the Moog on stage- And looks count, right? ;)
I know of quite a few folks that come to my band's shows just to drool over my synth... hopefully the music's a factor too! :mrgreen:

this is exactly correct about synths :)
i see it like this:
food that looks bad might taste bad, eventhough if you had your eyes closed it might taste fine.
the same goes for software and hardware.
hardware only looks better. half the time lol
