Analog snubbery 2013-02-21 09:40:40 I recently came along a thread on one forum where a guy was attempting to write his own emulation of the legendary SP1200 sampler. He was met with derision and claims how you cannot "replicate the analog warmth". When some other guy pointed out that vinyl actually has a lower dynamic range than the evil digital CD, other guys immediately wrote what pretty much amounts to "But it sounds better anyways right? Right?". Then another guy started to go on about how we should not listen to digital because it is "ones and zeroes" and we are not robots, and about how nobody is making plugins to emulate the sound of computers (tell that to every bitcrusher maker, Amiga mod enthusiast, chiptune maker etc.). All these people seemed to be under the impression that SP1200 aliasing is actually ring modulation and that it is somehow an analog sampler despite its typical warm and crunchy sound coming from the very limitations of low samplerate digital audio. How to counter people who think just because they have some nice old gear that they are suddenly doing "analog sound" and stuff like this?
