>those things matter, but ultimately midi is not designed for guitar synth >and that is the bottleneck. There is no hope, all midi guitars suck. :-) <snip> >kim > >______________________________________________________________________ >Kim Flint | Looper's Delight sigh. here we go again. that's totally subjective, kim..andi KNOW youre KINDA kidding a guitar synth should not be judged as anything but/..... let this guy form his own opinion --- i gave a sterile--info only response... depends on what he wnats to do for many guitarists-----all ,yes ALL EFFECTS SUCK >tweak sounds. Skip the sample triggering thing if you are doing your own >custom sounds and not trying to sound like a bad timpani or saxophone >player, you'll be much happier! see-- this is your, and other people's constant mistake--- i for one , use sounds like that 1% of the time !! it's not what works well.... guitar synth is PERFECT for setting up aquick bassline loop..or just getting a nice cloudy JX-3p or oberheim pad behind some guitar loops..... the people who hate guitar synth INVARIABLY are (for some reason) always caught up in trying to use it as a Piano, sax, or acoustic gtr. It's HORRIBLE for that. But--throw the whole thing out??? bizarre thought process. it's like complaining that a strat straight into marshall on 10 doesnt make those Chopin Etudes sound relaxing enuf. NOT WHAT ITS FOR... > sigh.whatever NEXT GIG: Jfk's Lsd Ufo .......Fri FEB 18- 8pm - Knitting Factory - Knitactive Soundstage 74 Leonard St - NYC - 212-219-3006- http://www.knittingfactory.com- webcast!!??
