[LAU] [OT] hardware sound module with digital output

Hello everyone,

I was randomly looking at current hardware synths, noticing than most of 
them offer only analogue outputs. It looks odd to me to generate a sound 
in the digital world, then convert it to analogue, just to convert it 
back to digital at recording time... If analogue output is obviously a 
must, I'm wondering why, even in very expensive keyboards where cost 
saving is a smaller issue, an AES/EBU (or at least a S/PDIF) output is 
not available.

Any thought ?
