It was actions and consequences, not really all luck and providence as much as that romantic idea conquers the collective mindset.
One of the things that gets me about people on Gearslutz when they try to slag some piece of gear, is that the people making it/developing it are generally just as passionate or if not even more about synths/drum machines than they are.
