Fair enough. See below.

I don't really think polyphony is at all related to this. No shortage
of 'flute' and 'brass' attempts on monophonic synths.

Aesthetically, though, I actually agree, perhaps with an even stronger
version: I am not particularly interested in any attempts to make
computers pretend to be acoustic instruments at all (e.g. samplers of
the gig school). All you do is suck the soul out of it and turn the
machine(s) into, as you say, a cheap replacement.

Anyway, since I have failed to get an opinion out of you one way or the
other, and you wish to end this thread, I will assume the thing to do is
just fork the plugins and change their interface appropriately to be
more sensible outside of AMS with no regard to backwards compatibility.

They are currently attributed entirely to you, and "fomp" is a cute
quasi-acronym for "Fons' Modular Plugins". I can change this if you do
not wish to be associated with them whatsoever.

Cheers,
