Different strokes--hardware has issues too. For me personally, the
birth of my son meant my rack of gear with flashing lights had to be
put out of his reach, and so I had to go through the process of
hooking everything up my guitar to rack to amp each time I wanted to
play, which got old fast. VSTs and modular hosts were a godsend.

It's always something. I love big modular synthesizers like the serge
and moog I used back in school. But I'd never own one, it would drive
me crazy.

I deal with the usual computer stuff at work, so for some reason it
doesn't bug me at home, even if that doesn't seem to make any sort of
logical sense. I actually feel like I understand my computer better,
because I'm not just looking at a few digits on an LCD screen.
