"Echo Chamber" Youtube/Internet Synths/Electronic Music Making
I am personally starting to become bored with some of the online content regarding electronic music devices.
I am hoping in next coming months to actually launch a channel and hope to see some others.
The echo chamber combined with the "every product" is amazing and "every person" who reviews them is so brilliant is getting old.
I know it is my opinion but as of late, I am having a hard time watching product vids.
So much so, the homogenous cast of characters in the industry is sort of at the saturation point when it comes to my real world sensibilities.
I know online "ultra polite' and "hyper praise friendliness" is the norm. In reality, I see it more as an exercise in anticipated reciprocity of the "kind words"being "responded" to back.
Eventually when the same few people give the same effusive praise for products.......cmon.
Especially when many of them get free things or endorsements or payment in one form or another from many of these companies.
And very few of them ever talk about that component of the content in regard to the previous existing relationships or gratis with a manufacturer.
When we are talking about very expensive items, the perpetual love fest is redundant and at time insulting to my intelligence as of late.
I am not ragging on the personalities per se, more the environment they are existing it. Many of them are actually being used and they don't even know it. Eventually they will lack credibility and they may not know it.
That being said, I hope to see more diversity of opinions online regarding hardware and devices.
In the end, will anything change? No.
But, at least maybe some more real reviews and videos would make the industry online talk more relevant to my interests anyway.
It is sort of funny, the more reviewers LOVE items, more companies products end up on their channels that they "LOVE". Over and over and over.
I think Takerith has a great channel to be honest because he not only gives real reviews he does videos besides though that are essentially infomercials for gear.
I know many will disagree but I had to put this out there to know if I am alone on it.
Look forward to your input.
And yes this is the tone I have in real life. Not an Internet personality crafted to be some "nice guy" everyone loves and agrees with.
Dat ain't real fam.
NOTE: DID THIS QUICK SO PARDON SPELLING OR GRAMMAR ISSUES
AND DOUG IS NOT PART OF THIS.
DOUG IS KING
TIM @Discchord is Prince
These 2 are not what I am talking about.
I am not as much really talking about apps more hardware to be clearer.
This Dave Mech guy has a good Digitakt channel also. Check him out.
