I suppose you prefer digital drums and digital pianos over the real
thing then, too?  And digital modeling amps over real tube amps?

After all, they all sound kind of close to the real thing.

I still find it curious that you describe real instruments as "static
and lifeless," since those are terms that are nearly universally applied
to the digital counterparts.
