Well after a lot of research I find digital technology has ruined the planet, anybody who is in the know, prefers analog vinyl, tbh with ya, anything after the digital switch I felt things ain’t been quite right in this music world! When was the digital switch ? 1994 was year I went off hardcore for a while until 1997 when I heard this site and for nastalgia purposes. Listening to my dads analog vinyl back in day felt right. But listening to commercialised cds sounded too perfect not real and internet mp3s were piss poor but we’re very convenient and easy to click and listen.
I find most digital synths tinny or just cheesy and naff, analog synths have more warmth and beef, who is using none digital equipment these days? Are there shops or online stores that specialise in analog synths, probably expensive and wouldn’t recommend it unless your a serious head candy producer. A digital computer is a simple solution just to fart around like an amateur and is still good to an extent.
I remember my taxi driver saying music died in 1979 well to him it did because everything went electronic then.
Also why is nearly everyone depressed, is it digital induced depression? (DID)

There is too much electronic music being released now there is no barrier to putting your stuff out there.Before you had to fork out big bucks for a vinyl run so you had to pick your best tracks, perfect them.Now it costs nothing to put tracks digitally online.
The only genre i follow releasing new stuff is acid techno and i only buy the vinyl releases.Other genres may have some good stuff coming out but its buried in a massive steaming pile of digital garbage.

Even back in the day tunes were recorded to DAT though so you still have some digital tech there
It's like any tool, it's how you use it. There's so much digital technology can do I don't think you can generalise.
I think what's at the root of what you're experiencing isn't so much the music, more just the passage of time. You'll never be able to compare hearing an old tune in the 90s when it was all brand new to you and you had never heard anything like that before, to hearing something new this week when you've had many more years of hearing music. Not to mention memories etc.
