No problem. No offense taken. The joys of internet communication.
You could well be correct RE his not being a salesman.
Assuming the Sonicstate presentation wasn't scripted, having a cohesive list/progression of talking points/features would have helped his case. The whole thing to me came off as ill-prepared; it felt more like he simply turned up with the instrument.
Given George has worked (to an extent) in the business world in a past life, I was very surprised by the apparent lack of preparedness. If he worked for my company and presented the brand as of the Sonicstate video, I'd have fired him when he returned to the office later that day.
My concern in these situations is in the possibility of this ill-preparedness being extended through to the instrument i.e never-ending updates/bug fixes due to poor compliance/lack of objective oversight.
I'm certainly not going to take the risk of paying not a small sum to report problems with a synth back to the person who should have dealt with these problems in the first place.
Again though, I hope I'm completely wrong and all goes well for UDO.
I'm keeping an eye on the synth. Possibly in a couple of years I'll pick one up.
Maybe George should step back a bit. If UDO becomes 'the George show', this could be very dangerous. As far as I'm aware, no-one else at UDO has presented the instrument, which would suggest this may be the case. But maybe I need to find/look at more UDO videos.
