Default WTF is this guy on about??? Soooo tired of this

Yes clickbait title but wtf is this now from the Best Salesman on the planet??

https://m.youtube.com/watch?_hsenc=p...&v=l89q-SCxT-4


If the ”Pro’s” he is talking about thinks these chinese made hardware phones are such a great thing along with this software then the mixer guys days will be totally over in 6 months!!!

Fact:

Bought 2 Raven MTi2’s new for 2488 USD conversion from Euro!
Sold for 700 USD for the pair 12 months later as they are Caca! Bad graphics, runs soo hot they smell, useless software implementation, weird user angle, Bad quality. They were Old tech the same day they arrived at the door

Fact:

Bought a Slate VMS bundle for 1655 USD - Sold for 450 USD 8 months later in MINT with extra mic packs. Useless sound quality, stupid Slate vs Sony C800G, 251’s, U47 etc etc etc We have all those original and Vms sound nothing like they do. Picked apart a broken VMS from a studio here and it contains parts valued at around 133 USD and this was ”disected” by a Great Tech who makes the swedish TK Audio stuff! He laughed to tears. Checked the Mic aswell and it was just cheap chinese crap parts slung together.

This has now gone too far and people HAVE to stop falling for these ”fad” products as he states Get the best mixes in the world with our ”Beryllium” headphones and software and get the same sound in your closet as a 10.000 person club in IBIZA for example!! Well many comments on the forums are like :

Yessss take my money I dont have to learn anything and can make my ”non great songs’ in my closet sound JUST like the highest paid engineers bla bla bla

This is like saying now everyone thinks they can make great music without knowing one iota of technical stuff or know how to play any instrument at all. Just buy a chord plugin and get to it!!!

This is why the songs on the billboard charts sound like FAKKK! Totally un-listenable (if thats a word) as they distort, sound plastic, Crappy mixes and all the songs have the same chord progression as every producer / DJ Wannabee use the same plugins.

I feel like giving this music business up for good! Made a super great living and dont need to work so thinking about starting a plugin company instead making the same crap as everyone else and just be 10-20% cheaper than all these clown salesmen making up words for 1’s and 0’s to sound like WOWOWOW! This MUST be the BEST plugins in the world and the hardware is like Super Great Beryllium driver and silicon elements with turbo brain shaking loose bass refection bla bla and it is only $199!! Must be the best deal ever right?

I’m done and sorry for the rant! Had to do it!

PS. Beryllium drivers have been a thing for a long time so dont fall for his cheap crappy made gear please! Just words and sales tacticts that sounds impressive but he buys those headphones for less than $50 or maybe $25 and talks like they are a pair of $2500 headphones just like our superior sounding non hyped sennheiser or AKG

I will give Steven a little credit. His voice sounds like he’s relaxed the pucker factor one notch.

In the last live shot of the video, I guess the kid was checking to be sure the Right/Left balance was as good as the Left/Right balance. Another Steven Slate innovation.

I'm with you.

Businessmodel to sell crap for a lot of money is really annoying.

If I had had a 2-inch and SSL two decades ago, I probably would have never wanted a DAW
