There’s a sucker born every minute. Two, if you count Cubs’ fans. And to these hapless hordes stuff is sold at a GNP-bolsteringly alarming rate. This site heps you to identify Totally Worthless Gadgets for CD Enthusiasts. Now if we could only come up with a site like this for oh, just about everything else, we’d be set.
And as a pleasant corollary to the person who buys every totally worthless gadget, there’s this: a site dedicated to free software ports. That’s right, FREE. Which, on a certain level, means you don’t even care if it does anything because after all it was free (witness: tradeshow tchotchkes).
We swear that we were attracted to more than the URL here. We were, in fact, attracted to the possibility of new kind of a VST/DXi software plug-in for string and wind synths. Sure there’s some free stuff here, but you’ll have to pay for anything other than a trial download. And so then the question becomes: is it worth it? Unless our ears are lying to us, yes.
