It still requires a master luthier to design a machine made violin.
Some tube amps are well-liked by many guitarists, some analog synth are
well-liked by many keyboard players. If it's your mastery to mimic this

feel free to provide circuit diagrams and printed circuit board layouts
or to provide source code and/or binaries.

$ pacman -Q linux{,-rt{,-cornflower,-pussytoes}}|awk '{print $2}'
