When we discusss VSTi versus samplers it often comes to the graphics.
So I thought of a solution:
1) What if Halion (and other samplers) made the GUI open source, so that 3 party developers could make custum made Gui\'s?
It would also bring work to many talented graphic artists and really bring life back to sample libraries.
Sampler developers could concentrate in a stable engine and raw power.
Think about it..
