Yamaha Electone 60th Anniversary Video

Unread post by Saul » Tue Apr 02, 2019 3:01 am

I don't really know what to say about this. I thought when I saw the title that it was going to be a video giving us some of the history and an overview of where the Electone is in 2019 but instead we have...well...this :confusion-confused:

Would be very interested to hear what others think?

Hmm . .

OK if you like that sort of thing . . . . but

Whilst you can play quite fast with two fingers (if you'll pardon the expression :lol: ) - like a trill for instance . .

The same is not true for two feet. :D

Organ Pedal boards are a whole different discipline, and no Organist will thank you for writing a St Vitus Dance on them.:naughty:

What a load of cr*p, frankly.

Pity, I had an HS6 for a while.
I practised my embryonic MIDI programming skills, using BASIC on an Atari 520, trying to work on memory dumps from it.
Never did get it working properly. Sniff, sniff!

Well obviously this vid was made in Japan and whatever it is they are trying to convey doesn't quite translate to western tastes?

Maybe they are attempting to change the image of Electone so it appeals to a younger buyer? Tough call considering it's price and the alternatives out there for young keyboard players now.

Surprised though that Yamaha UK/USA/Europe have not put something up.

Understatement of the year ... so far, IMV Saul. :wink:

Perhaps they know something about the Electone image that hasn't yet percolated through to Yamaha Japan? :?:
