i agree to dissagree: i prefere my hardware, not for the sound, but the 
interface. having dedicated knobs is a limiting factor that allows me to 
navigate the infinity of sounds i can create. hw also makes me have 
differently fun, which i believe is an invaluable ingredient to a hit. 
(what ever a hit is if not a suggestive thing) no email notifications, no 
interesting wiki page, no irc, you know, just on-switch and sounds.

however looking for facts in this type of discussion is impossible on 
internet. there is an equal amount of tangible thesis and trustworthy 
antithesis. and with reasons: music is a very paticular artform were every 
success story is full of myths, anecdotes and taste. however, no doubt that 
100% ITB studios are moving masses today. my point is that very few other 
music consumer than the geeks and audiophiles chose to listen to the 
reverbtail or the distortion-fuzz over listening to the track globaly and 
in its context . 

my 2 kronor,

ps. reminds me of curtis blow: 'clap yo hands everybody, if you got what 
takes!' :)
