Not at all. It speaks for the artist when he can even create something of
from ... junk. And there are applications where bleedthru and a limited
range really don't matter. However, the most interesting applications for
a FS are just where the Doepfer cannot go, IMO. If you have played with
both, a good one and a Doepfer one, you will know the difference.
It's not like a little bit of more noise or less noise as it would be on a
VCA - it's an entirely different device.

Just to name one example:
There is a patent from Bob Moog which describes an interesting Frequency
Shifter application, using an additional all pass filter and a frequency
shift of approx. 1Hz. It's one of the sweetest things you can do with a FS.
Now try this on a Doepfer (;->).

More about it in the archives. *Really*.
