You're not really in the minority.  I'm a big believer in simplicity
and ease of use in general, and especially where tools for creativity
are concerned.  Most people might think otherwise, but I'm the author,
so there.  

I will be adding filters, LFOs, envelopes, effects, etc. But the
overiding concern above all is simplicity.  You'll always be able to
just start Specimen, load some samples, and go.  The flexibility will
be there, but it won't be in your face.
