Re: OT $1.95 synth!

Back in the day of analogue synths, like mid eighties, I heard that the market (moneys in) for synths all together equalled the market of one big Safeway. And that was when a good synth cost big bucks.

For so long I've wondered, "Why don't music software companies price

Because the size of the markets aren't even close to the same. I
don't have any hard data, but I'd be surprised if the number of units
of game software sold isn't at least a hundred times larger than the
number of units of music software. You can't "make it up in volume"
if there is no volume.
