Yamaha PSR-SX Video - Be inspired?

Unread post by Saul » Thu Sep 12, 2019 9:55 am

As much as I do like the whole PSR-SX concept I am always a little puzzled by some of the promo videos :think:

I can only assume these videos are directed in Japan because they certainly don't tick the right boxes for a Western audience. The one above is a perfect example of this.

In this video we see a young women apparently coming up with an idea for a song and then recording it on the PSR-SX. The problem is we don't hear any playing and the "song" is not really a song as such, just some "La, la la's" over a backing track.

Yamaha did the same with some of their latest guitar videos. All backing track over "lifestyle" video.

Would be nice if someone could tell the producers of these videos that no one is interested in seeing someone badly acting to a backing track. We are "musicians" and we want to see and hear the instrument(s) being played and preferably not by actors unless they also happen to be musicians.

I know it is splitting hairs and not a deal breaker for anyone looking to buy a PSR-SX or any other instrument but Yamaha could do so much better.

Quite agree, Saul.

The word that sprang to mind, almost instantly, was "pathetic!"

Surely, a company with all the resources that Yamaha has, could do a trifle better than this load of garbage.
