but back in the '70's I'd heard that 4x or tangential spoking made for a softer ride

There is a difference and purpose in lacing patterns and that is why they have come about. Then there are people that can not notice differences in many things such as lacing patterns, long and short cage shifting performance, red vs. white wine and such.

Before the Cirque I relaced the wheels on my Rauler as I had changed out the rims and wanted to correct a lace pattern that put the valve stem between two spokes that crossed instead of between two that were opened. Not thinking about it I started lacing the wheel and quickly realized that I would have to relace the wheel in the same way that it originally was laced if I didn't want to create new spoke impressions on the hub. These wheels were originally built in Europe and I have seen this lace pattern before on Euro bikes and it leaves me wondering.?
