Quality is a great thing to measure synths by, but to be objective you need a quantifiable measurement of quality, similar to the four C's of diamonds. What's your unit of quality?Stab Frenzy wrote:Give me a quantifiable measurement that we can all agree on to measure an aspect of older vs. newer synths performance and we can have a rational, objective discussion about it.
I could go through all your points one by one and point out how you're trying to argue a point which is tangential to what's being discussed in this thread, but that would be a little boring. I'll just summarise:
Do you seriously think a reissue SQ-80 would be under $400?
Not every modern synth is an SH-201.
The D-50 horns I get from my VC-1 card in my V-Synth are quite nice, thanks for asking.
Older synths are great for cheap second-hand items. Making the exact same synths today using outdated technologies and ignoring the advancements made in the last 30 years is financial suicide for a large company.
