Mass production/marketing would get you the price, not the quality.
It would need a market willing to pay a little more for quality.
Id rather make friends :(
This reminds me a bit that there was a time when gear was traded/lent a lot more.
You learnt whatever you could from the owner when you needed it a bit or he got bored of it, could even discover what he didnt.
It was a consequence of actually needing more gear to finish things, needing help, and helping each other.
Its a lot less of a community for many people now since they can get it all in a PC, I kinda hope they all find the need for more friendly communities again.
Forums have potential for more than flaming.
So my tip is **** products that are pseudoteachers/friends if youre cheap anyway, get to know people who know their softsynths, trade patches, dont be a ****, learn what you can.
Ask nicely, put away your ego, your entitlements, be honest.
