FTFV: they say the most painful event in your life is being born.

Maybe for some. For myself, I'm going to go with being circumcised.

Thanks modmins.

Background: Elektron is a Swedish electronics company that makes professional high end drum machines and synthesizers. This is an ad for a new synthesizer they have coming out soon.

That was a really ineffective product launch video.
It was a cool video and all, but having to sit through 5 minutes of video just to get a 2 second glimpse of the product, without even seeing it demonstrated doesn't make sense to me.

The synth they're introducing (to an already flooded market) is over $1000, and for that price you want a demonstration, not a cartoon.

their movie for when they introduced the octa-trak was kinda wacky like this and pretty cool also

as for it's usefulness as a demo video, well, there's plenty of those around too, but none would get linked on a site like fark

It reminded me of the Sega Saturn Promo they sent in the mail back in 1995. It will probably stand the test of time just as poorly. Link

Synthesizers aren't instruments. They're more like the OPPOSITE of music.

I guess for once the answer is A: horror movie.

Am I really the only person to guess that the soundtrack to the video was likely done with the product they're trying to demo? It's not a training video, it's a demo. It's a box with knobs on it, just like every other thing in this category.

It really is a complete guess, though.

geeks living in the basements of their parents houses are the main buyers for such overpriced fetish objects which they hope can be used to make good music.

A good musician is not made by the quality of his or her instrument, however a good musician becomes better on a good instrument.

It probably is, but they would be better off telling you that at the beginning.

Why the hell did you wait to get it done when you'd remember the pain?

i'm a big fan of battery operated noise makers like plastic childs guitars, casio keyboards and yamaha drums. used at yard sales or eBay, cheap, fun. got into them years ago trying to be a circuit bender / frankenstein boy but alas too stupit. the good stuff is nice for real musicians.

Let me guess... you preferred the theatrical release version of Dark City that had the 5 minute exposition at the beginning explaining the entire plot?

I'm not sure you know exactly what was being sold in that video.
Analog synthesizers don't have a "plot".
Nor do spatulas.

Overly dramatic and pretentious ad is overly dramatic and pretentious.
