of course are live and ot not the same, they are different tools for different workflows. but if I need more channels and to record pieces that are longer than 64 beats, I take a daw. but if you would blow up the ot with more channels, more sampling possibilities etc. you would try making it a powerfull as a daw, and in my opinion that would be a hopeless effort, because the ot will always be outpowered by a daw on a laptop (from the number of channels, recording lengths etc., not by the workflow). So I take the ot for what it is including its limitations.
its similar to the minimoog model d: Of course it would have been possible for moog to add more oscs, filters, patch slots, oled display, bluetooth etc, but then its not a minimoog anymore.
