You statement that 'any modern virtual synth will be just as powerful' makes me think you've never touched a G2 or maybe just scratched the surface.
You're right, I've never used the G1 or G2, I'm referring to specs and user comments.
I didn't say anything about the sound, I was just referring to the flexibility of the instrument as a completely user-configurable hardware synth, which is something I believe is completely unique even to this day.
Definitely a little more than the "overpriced MIDI controller" the OP was indicating.
