dude you're missing the point.
the whole awesome deal with a computer is that you can feebly replicate
hardware with limited functionality and mediocre sound and then put it
all behind a picture of the unit you didn't pay any attention to in the
pictures of Moog modulars come into mind when i think about this
by all means don't do something which draws inspiration from a
collector's piece of hardware and then puts a whole new spin on it.
then you might have a useful and original product with an interface
which is designed to be interacted with on a computer.
and make sure you use rotary controls instead of sliders. people love
being forced to move the mouse in an unfriendly circular direction.
also, don't allow them to input a fundamentally numeric value using the
keyboard. they might actually find that useful.
