Re: guitar synthesizers
Back in the day I saw the power that was the Synclavier as my employer
owned one. The disc drive was the size of a small refridgerator. I'm
sure there's nothing that a good PC/Mac with some off the shelf
software could do and run rings around the Synclavier. It was a great
machine of its time, but it's pretty much a dinosaur.
