Absolutely. In my opinion you need contrast/tension in music. I just
listened to an ea-piece from the early 70's by swedish composer Rune
Lindblad. just a plain VCS3 (old analog synth), no reverb, no
effects, no eq and it was extremely aggressive and forward sounding.
It was beautiful!
Max/MSP is favourite digital instrument and I usually have a lot of
fun working with it. Its a very creative environment.
I also happen to think it has a basic sound of its own which could be
described as flat (or even lifeless) when I compare it to the old
analog equipment I also love & use. But its just a characteristic of
the instrument and once you know it you can deal with it. If you are
good at it you can probably get away using only Max/MSP but
personally I need to mix with other sources.
