Hello guys !
I need a little piece of advice here,
In two days it's my birthday (yay happy birthday to me!), and I'd like to make a little gift to myself.
I'm considering two options at the moment : the UVI Falcon or a low priced hardware synth (a Waldorf Blofeld probably). Until now, I've been working with a lot of different stuffs, and I have to confess, a few cracked softwares (err...).
But I've come to a point where I feel that I would really benefit from buying stuff, mostly because I never use the cracked software like I should : I spend a few hours testing things and then I leave it aside. It reminds me of the way you would play cracked videogames vs the one you buy. So I've bought a license for uhe Diva and got the Slate Digital monthly plan for mixing stuffs. I also own a Maschine and the Komplete Select.
Now I'd like to get rid of my 5 or 6 cracked VST, and I'm looking for an intelligent way to replace them.
That's why I'm thinking about buying and hardware synth or the UVI Falcon.
The first choice is attracting me because I feel that having physical knobs and limited possibilities would be a good thing to craft a more personal sound, but I'm afraid that the limitation in terms of sonic possibilities would block me and make me go back to my old bad habits.
The choice of the UVI Falcon would cover absolutly any of my needs, but that I might get frustrated a bit it would be another round of pointing and clicking with the mouse. The good thing is that I'm not afraid to really get myself into all the advanced synthesis options offered by the soft as I would have paid a very high price for it. Reading the f**ing manual would even be fun for me.
I'd really love to have your thoughts about it. I know there is no absolute option, but regarding my needs, which would be the best ?
Thank you anyone for the answer.
PS: don't bash me for cracked VST shit I've been in, I guess we all need to start with something !
