Aren't they the same ones who made a 'full overview of a Kurzweil K2700' but didn't talk about nor demonstrated V.A.S.T. programming at all.

In that case, they're funny like that. Lots of hand gesticulations too.

That synth King Uberheim demo sounds good. I might watch the Anderton one for fun.

It does sound good. Very good actually. I'm still not going to buy one for reasons I've written about before and won't regurgitate but in fairness when it comes to the sound it would seem that the Andertons video was all but certainly the problem in this case.

That's just you going into a pub then. ;)

I'd have no problem buying one myself. My Behringer count is 1 for now (got the RD-8!), but this sure will grow.

Saw the Andertons video last night, and yes, there's definitely a big mess-up somewhere at Andertons. It's quite telling that the people commenting actually jumped to the belief it's the hardware which has a problem ('bad clone!', etc...). It is quite incredible that those people at Andertons didn't even notice anything wrong in their setup and still made the video and published it as is. Even more incredible: these people want to sell you synths!

I'm having trouble, writing a balanced reply, music shops have one purpose, to sell gear, no different to clothes shops, food shops, or any other shop, that’s their primary function, to sell, if they don’t, they go out of business.
Some are more conscientious than others, some feel like they genuinely care about what you need, and have an interest in what they are selling, some are way down that scale.
Would I buy a used car from any of those people at Andertons?

They don't sell used cars...

It was a cockup, and in an ideal world it should have been spotted and dealt with promptly.

But cockups happen to all of us from time to time. What's that old adage about stones and glasshouses? :think::lol:

On that basis Hugh I shouldn’t really criticise our current government, but somehow ….

Anyway back to the thread, yes the video is a cockup but in the interests of balance I have to say I’ve always found Andertons extremely helpful both online and IRL since I bought my first pair of monitors there about 20 years ago.

Glad I listened to the 'synth king' demo! :clap:
Was so disappointed earlier in the week with the Andertons unveiling - just didn't sound like an oberheim!

You have trouble with lots of things. I find your posts nonsensical. Stop quoting me with them.
