Re: Guitar synth..take it (or leave it ) for what it is

I know that it wasn't, and I didn't mean to sound quite so abrupt. Blame 
a busy day at work. My sincere apologies if any offense was taken.

Don't get me wrong. I love the concept of MIDI guitar. The 
implementations, thus far, have not been acceptable to me, those last two 
words being the defining ones. I have no trouble with others struggling 
with the current spate of controllers and learning to work around their 
limitations. More power to them. My personal interest is in making music, 
not in learning the eccentricities of a related, yet vastly different 
instrument than the one I play, and certainly not in altering the way I 
work to accomodate technology. Good technology folds itself into your 
work methods, or at least it should, in my opinion. User interface is 
always the hardest part of design.
