RE: (To Synth or not to Synth)

Title: RE: (To Synth or not to Synth)

>>1) Am I OK / comfortable with producing sounds from something that is called a synthesizer?
2) Do I like the sounds I can create with a synthesizer?<<

I'd have to add something to this along the lines of "is having a familiar control surface (i.e. the fingerboard instead of a keyboard) sufficient compensation for the rubbish response of a midi-tracking system?"

my own experience with a gr-something & a gi-10 both left something to be desired in terms of what I was trying to perform. simple timing latency one can get used to, but when the mistracking & misinterpretation of one's nuances are also factored in, it becomes very frustrating.

(fwiw, I have "hex" pickups on a strat, a fender VI & a precision. curiously, the VI behaves the best.)

so, when I want to play a keyboard part, I use a keyboard.
that's not to say I've given up. I'll be revisiting this issue today, in fact- my peavey cyberbase just showed up.....
