Modular isn't restricted in any way, but helping someone who is just starting with it to get into it in a sane way is not pointless.
You totally misunderstood our points here.
Sane? Modular? in the same breath? please.
I believe you can’t help anyone get into modular, apart from telling them how to plug in modules, and what a VCA does.
Everything beyond that is like taking the red pill, and I’m not in any way misunderstanding anything here.
Everything has restrictions, modular is no exception, "unlimited" by its very nature, imposes limitations, too many options, too many sounds, operational absurdities, that no sane person would put up with, that’s why I have a wall of modular.
Indeed I've seen it! However it's not unlimited - it's restricted by the size of your cellar wall
Yes, it’s grown another cabinet, I’ve had to expand sideways, for two reasons, I can’t reach it, and it’s hitting the rafters, this is bad, really bad.
We have a very gifted young pianist staying with us at the moment, which is interesting, in a couple of ways, I’m having to give her the use of our piano to practice on, for hours every day, also, she wandered into the basement and saw the modular, and was very interested in it, even worse than that, my partner like she does, says "oh, he’ll show you how it works, won’t you?"
No "he" won’t, I’m not being held responsible for ruining the career of a future concert pianist, I can see the interview now, "I was well on the way to a promising career, and then I stayed at this mad house, full of these strange boxes full of flashing lights, and I was never the same again"
