I know that one of the problems with a lot of popular hardware synth workstations like the Triton/etc. is that the sounds get used so much by other aspiring songwriters/producers/etc. that it\'s hard to not sound like everybody else.
I was wondering - does the same thing happen to us users of VST instruments and sample libraries (e.g. SampleTank, Atmosphere, Absynth)?
I\'ve been under the assumption that we (the VST/software sampler community) are a minuscule minority compared to the number of people who rely on hardware synths, and that, therefore, we don\'t have to worry about \"sounding like everybody else\". But is this really true? Or are there indeed some overused VST/sample libraries that I should be careful of?
