It just came up in the pictures thread, //// pictures //// - vactrols are on the way out. I’ve bought into the idea of vactrols as a “design choice that makes things sound smooth and organic.”
I know they can be modeled digitally. Vactrol-boosters like Make Noise are starting to release vactrol-free modules (dynamix as an example, MMG is out of production). Should this feel sad? I feel sad. Vactrols have been part of the design of most modules in my rack. Are they hype? Should I not be sad?
