Just a lighthearted rant, I’m not that serious
I see quite a few people on YouTube or Reddit who keep the film on their Elektron gear, even seasoned users, and when I ask why, most of the time they say it’s to keep resale value. I get it, but it drives me nuts (just a tiny bit). In my opinion, not only is it another experience without it, it’s the intended experience. And to me, keeping the film is like watching a movie on someone’s iphone on a crowded bus.
Not to mention the performances I watch are usually chill home sessions. Why deprive yourself of such a nice display when there’s no danger in sight ? I don’t think succulents are a threat, do you ? Personally though, if I cared about resale value that much, I think I’d buy a cheap external midi controller to avoid touching my Elektron gear altogether. And even that controller, I’d use with gloves. You’re never too safe…
I’m just kidding. I get it. It’s just weird to me. So to put my mind at ease, I thought I’d ask Elektron what they think about it. If they’re OK with it, I might be able to let it go.
Incidentally, how do Elektronauts feel about this ?
