"Olde" (note the final e) is not stupid <G>. There's an assumption that younger brains are so empty that there's plenty of room to stuff them with current technology, but that's not accurate, either. The truth is that some of these gizmos can be more complicated than others and require a bit more commitment and/or the whole manual is written by electrical engineers rather than musicians and/or the interface is *barely* designed to be used by a guitar player. I came from a Hammond B3 to this: and they still sell these: My first reaction was, "No! Oh HELL No!" I still can't look at these things without shuddering. Now the whole of that Korg M20 Synth is an app for your iPad. No, seriously. http://www.korg.com/us/products/software/ims_20_for_ipad/ If they showed you the internal flow chart of the electronics of an Axe-FX, you'd pee. We've got the business of getting the right sounds out of them just about done. It's making them simple again that's going to take the *real* engineering. But look at it this way; there's more computing power going on in your phone than they used on the entire Shuttle project. It'll get there.
