Youtube can be a great tool for actually hearing something which might otherwise be impossible to easily test in the real world. It can make the difference between taking a chance on ordering something from the interwebz without trying it yourself, or just deciding to play it safe. Even a good comparison demo between something you know and something you're curious about can be very informative. However... tonight I thought I'd give a listen to some demos regarding something I want compared to something else, and some of these guys just never seem to get down to business. I'm talking about a five-minute demo, and I'm waiting for the product to actually be used, but there is a lot of talk about the specs and such. I start skipping forward bit by bit, and there's no evidence of anything being played when I jump by 10 second intervals. I got to the end on one, and there was no actual demonstration, even though they had enough time to stick in a computer-generated logo sequence for their business which would have put the NFL to shame. This happened to me on at least 6 demos, so I now just wait 30 seconds, then start skipping. I understand wanting to let someone know the specs, even though I think if someone found the video, they can probably investigate the product. Still, are they just trying to pad the video? This just barely outpaces my second peeve about demos, clean demos on which someone decides to drench the clean sound in delay, chorus, reverb or a huge combination of similar effects. If you're going to demo the clean tone, including its articulation, then taking a walk on the spacey side defeats the purpose. Clearly this isn't earthshaking, but I just wonder what's on someone's mind when they put something like this up. Do they have a quota they have to fill? Anxious subscribers who will unsubscribe unless there's something new to watch, however uninformative it might be? Anyone else ever been frustrated by demos which turned out not to be?
