C2 is just one big abstraction layer.
That part in the Wizard of Oz where the Wizard says pay no attention to that man behind the curtain.
Whats truly surprising is that there are people that choose not to look.
Speaking for myself, I do look behind the curtain and I do very complex things in c2. What I'm after is making those complex events less of a fiddling around and more of a flow. Right now you have to do a lot of little thing to achieve something basic, that should be included in plugins already. That's takes a lot of time. That's why I see difference between okeish and great tools. Great tool are for example cubase and photoshop. Everything there is tight and thought out, letting the creator purely focus on creativity.
