By "dumbed down" I mean restricted in a way which may result in
inexperienced users making fewer mistakes, but will also inconvenience
more advanced users. An example of this would be a high mid EQ that won't
sweep above 8kHz. What if I need to EQ 12kHz? There's some excuse for this
kind of thing on analogue hardware, as component cost has to be kept down,
but in a plugin it's totally unnecessary.

Another pet peeve is lack of a text entry field on controls, as it makes
it difficult to set a parameter to an exact amount. Even worse are detented
controls. What if I need an intermediate setting? The reason for detents on
analogue hardware is for repeatability of settings, but it's totally
redundant in software, unless the developer has neglected to provide
text entry!

I will stress that I'm talking about audio engineering tools, not music
creation software here. I do appreciate that users of the latter have very
different requirements.
