  1. Performance video is very funny. Everyone is holding a 3-note chord
    for dear life while moving like suffering from late-stage Tourettet’s syndrom.

    Advanced ‘performers’ spaz on some knobs too.

    Next-gen stuff 🙂

    1. Laughing at “Next-gen stuff” – funny funny.

      Or when you see people quickly touching the knobs – I like to call it “Lava-Knobing” because when people turn knobs while performing they act as if they’re scorching hot, touching and then pulling back their hands as if they’ve made contact with magma. Although in this video they kept hands firmly put. +1 for that.

      1. “Lava-knobing”: excellent term!

        The reason for this move is supposedly to not disrupt the complex and fast playing
        of the keyboard. Of course in this video the playing consists mostly of holding a chord for about
        2 minutes straight, so there is no need for Lava-knobing.

  2. I think it sounds great, and the video is entertaining too! $199 is pretty steep, if it was cheaper it’d be on my radar…
