Sorry, but I side with Volumetrik. Maybe a majority of people here may think, but not everyone.

It is certainly less effort to ask for something than it is to criticize someone for wanting it. What's the worst that can happen by asking? Maybe we are let down if they don't listen but it's worth a shot.

It doesn't hurt to ask but it does hurt to criticize, no?

I for one wish there would be some modern Roland analog magic

You did make a bit appearance as "someone who waited a long time for a 2600" I think you and GuitarsAndSynths [name?] both were hunting for one of those at the same time, many years ago...

People seem to have forgotten that criticism's role is to improve things. The world is full of music critics, art critics, restaurant critics etc and these people use their knowledge and expertise to let people know when their efforts are paying off and when their efforts need improvement. Where would the world be if everybody spared everyone else's feelings and never let them know when their idea was bad or a waste of time?

Maybe people who have been posting here for a long time have more experience and knowledge of VSE threads and are in a position to critique the threads and ideas of people who've joined more recently, that's not such a terrible thing is it? If people are getting upset because more experienced forum users have taken the time to carefully point out the flaws in their argument (you yourself said that it's harder work to criticise than to just agree) then the fault lies with the person who can't take the criticism.

Wanna see what happens when people avoid criticism for too long?

^ +1000, also don't confuse my intentions, no one would embrace a change in Roland's direction more than me.

But there is a way to go about things, taking on board more experienced people's advice and making informed decisions is part of learning and being a valuable forum member.

Verses coming here as a new member and telling people that have been into synths for a long time that they're wrong and not listening to any criticism to your ideas won't win you any credibility.

In a world full of critics?

But anyway, as painful as it is to admit, it would appear that Roland doesn't give two shits about what VSE thinks, so lets just move on.

Now I agree with this. Anyway, when in VSE is time to criticize, threads consume several pages.
His sex dungeons are rumored to hold hundreds of people in secret locations around the world.
