Buying an 1176 is no different than buying a ready made soup.

A real chef makes his soup from onions and garlic and a real engineer makes his compressor from resistors and capacitors.

Turning a knob on an 1176 you bought to get your sound is no different than turning a knob on your stove to heat up your soup.

I respect a chef even more if he grows his own vegetables which is why I make all my own components from scratch from materials I've mined myself.

It's disheartening that more engineers aren't willing to put in that kind of effort anymore but I guess it's just cause people are lazy now.
