  • [compare] [poll] Is it okay to compare....?

    When was the last time we had a poll? ;-)

    I'll start one, hopefully it's fun.
    Here are the questions:



    Is it okay to compare....

    a) ...modules that are in the same category, i.e. 'entry-level', 'mid-range', or 'top-of-the-line'?

    b) ...modules that are in the same price-range?

    c) ...'top-of-the-line' modules to 'mid-range' ones?



    Please let me see your vote!

    They say that you should only compare apples to apples but that doesn't make sense to me. I mean, what if someone wants to know what an Asian pear is like and they've never seen one before? I could compare it to both apples and Bosc pears as it has some attributes of both but is not identical to either.

    I am not sure if this is a particularly good answer to your question. You might want to compare it to the answers that follow.

      So long as one does not expect the lesser module to be on par with the top of the line, I think it's fine to compare the differences. Especially if one is trying to decide on spending the extra $. Example, the TD9 is not in the same league as the TD30, but if you only have $300-400 to spend on a used module, it's pretty powerful at that price point.

      I certainly compared them when I was deciding if I wanted to upgrade. I did not expect the 9 to have a chance, I just wanted to determine if the 30 was worth so much more.

        I think I know what you are getting at, the trouble is a comparison's value is in what information it provides and not necessarily in the objects of the comparison. Some provide useful information, and some are useless rants - although even some low-content rants can be entertaining. :-)

        Is this because of our conversation in the other thread???

        I think there are a lot of factors that have to be looked at when it comes to comparing two different modules. There is price, features, expandability, resale, sound quality, etc.... I think you could easily compare a DTX-502 module vs a TD-30 if you are looking to only trigger VST's through midi. Can you compare a TD-11 against a 2Box module? I suppose, but it depends on what you are trying to compare. If its price, there is no comparison. If it is sound, there is no comparison. If it is expandability, there is no comparison. If it is what is better for a beginner, well... one might choose the TD-11. Another might choose the 2Box. If it is 2Box vs TD-30 vs. DTX-900 I suppose it makes sense since they are all flagship modules. But their pricepoint, feature set, etc. are all different. I suppose that's why you compare them though.
        I think my work is done here.

              I think module and kit comparisons should be made based on the budget, needs, use and wants of the person buying rather than to each other.....per say. The merits/downfalls of each module are very subject to the buyer....no matter what the specific features are of each.
