That’s also a possibility, I guess. I do tend to enjoy the deeper modules the most.
I like some of his newer philosophy that it should be clear how to use the module from the front panel. Definitely when using some of the M.I. modules I have, especially when getting into the lesser used functions (e.g. special modes, easter eggs, parasites, etc.) it can be a “break out the manual” situation. Even something as seemingly simple as Peaks - it can be tough to remember how to use it all.
O|D has solved that problem nicely with the 301, with the dual context sensitive LCD displays and soft keys. I don’t think M.I. wants to go that direction at all, from what I’ve read, though, which might just equate to simpler modules that do one or a couple of things extremely well.
I guess time will tell if the new releases appeal to me.
