There are two different things we should divide. There are
users who simply have no idea what they want to do. This is
the type you mentioned above and you're right.

OTOH, there are users who already have knowledge about a
certain task. These users will first try explore the UI
before reading docs.

Be honest: Do you read documentation when trying out a new
webbrowser or text processor? Certainly not. You know what
these tools are for, and you know how to deal with text
processors or web browsers.

The latter one is the target group we're discussing. Users who
already know about audio, audio synthesis and audio

Best regards
