I like to think I still am. After 25 years I felt like a change and a challenge, so I embraced digital technology and software synths in particular. That's not to say I don't still use all the analogues, I just find some of these new soft synths quite interesting.
Reason is actually an amazing program if you are prepared to put in the work.
Nice Forum by the way, I've been checking it for a while.

As someone that's spent a career playing hardware instruments and recently also a big fan of the V-Synth for all it's hands-on realtime control, how are you adjusting to editing sounds on a small screen with a mouse? I ask because I love the convenience and flexibility of software but I much prefer the experience of playing and programming a real synth with a good interface, like a V-Synth or a Nord Lead, and I'm very curious to know how someone like you views the tradeoffs.

It got to the point where I was taking 2 Prophet 5's (one as a spare) around the world on long tours.
