I think this is a really sucky direction for synthesis to take, actually.

You can turn on and play a MiniMoog without needing anything else 
around.  To have to boot up a lumbering behemoth of a PC just to be 
able to edit patches, well ... that's just not hardware synthesis.

Hardware synthesis means *nothing* else but what is in front of you 
is needed in order to realize the potential of the hardware.  At 
least, that's what it means to us, anyway ...
