Although hardware is more expensive than software and takes up more space, it does offer a guaranteed performance level, and crucially, usually a slider, knob or button for every parameter, making it somehow much more immediate to use, and so instruments such as the Access Virus and Moog Voyager continue to sell. But whether you choose hardware or software, perhaps the most important decision is which type(s) of synthesis you want to use, as each has its own sound signature and programming method we hope the information contained here has left you feeling sufficiently informed on the subject to make your mind up! |
