Good points, for instance a guitar pedal making a sub-Octave is producing
synthetic waveform.If you turn up the resonance of a Flanger, eventually
synthesizes a waveform.
So whether or not you're using "no synths" is not always an easy question
(ah, but I'm claiming "no synth" for my music at the moment)
I'd like to suggest that it's more important to consider whether the
are developed by the player. To me, a MIDI guitar playing a preset sound
just isn't exciting (the same being true if the sound is triggered by
keyboard). Yes, those digi-piano guitar solos really don't do it for me.
