The Behringer era


#598

Hahha ok


#599

Yup and watches, calculators, laptops, cars, everything… ‘WTF?!! This laptop has exactly the same layout and functions as this other one!?! Boycott???’

Supermarkets sell lightbulbs but I’m pretty sure they didn’t invent them :wink: something has to be ‘owned’ in order to be stolen. And without links to solid examples where it’s shown behringer are stealing something belonging to someone else, it seems like slander is possibly the only illegal thing going on surrounding behringer?

Sure, there’s also a moral question. But if someone’s going to get in to that they should probably be prepared to re-evaluate their entire house and belongings and donate a significant amount of it to charity…

The real question is why all these toilet paper designs have not changed yet. When is someone going to get sued for that, outrage!


#601

I am not quite sure you can copy rolex or nike or i dont no apple computers ? Can you?


#602

Only aspects that don’t have patent… That’s the whole point tho :wink:

But saying that, yeah you could copy a Nike shoe as much as the Crave copies the m32…


#603

Of sorry , you can !


#604

We like to think of our instruments as special things… labour of love and all… but that’s only true on a small scale. When you’re Roland or Behringer, it’s all products that target a specific population. Heck, even Elektron, as small as it is, now does crippled versions of their gear just to target people willing to pay less money than what their flagships cost.

Of course we are emotionaly linked to our instruments nonetheless, but at an industrial scale it’s all consumer electronics.

And yes it’s nice to consider labor conditions… I sincerely wish anyone not buying Behringer gear for this reason alone applies the same principle in everything he buys. I doubt it though.

No one in their right mind is gonna want that t-shirt tho unless they wanna be ironic.

With ‘tools’, like synths, that make sound. The branding etc is irrelevant to their usefulness…

Love it. It has the same function as the Adidas shirt. You don’t even see the sign when wearing it.
It’s just a matter of how others would look at you. Elitism and snobism play a big part here.

If you want to fit in some circles you wouldn’t want to wear this.
if nobody would see you, it makes no difference to what you’re wearing.

They do exactly the same. One shouts I have more money and I think i am cooler.
The other one says I have left my money for better, more important things in life.

Even if the product has maybe shorter lifetime. you can buy 5 or 10 of them for the same price of well known one. :slight_smile:


#607

Implying Adibass shirt is cheaper though… :grin:


#608

Guys, its not about the shirt, its about what you do in such shirt.


#609

Gran’ma makes them, you can’t beat that argument :rofl:


#610

Haha like what? Behringer gear ?


#611

Oh yes, let us consumme the hell out if it.


#612

#613

Love these words. Let me copyright this :heart_eyes:


#614

If you dont have anything better to copyright its fine with me :grin:


#615

Ultimately neither of us has the best or right view on things. Things are what they are. We’ll se in couple of years what will become of this whole Behringer issue. Some folks will be happy, some will be unhappy.
It’s just life as it is.


#616

I tought cats dont ware t- shrts, guy siriously, this is geting slately of topic, i don’t wonna be held responsible for kiling this nice topic. B-ERA>


#617

Actually maybe sooner, let us see how it goes with Roland thing .
I don’t think people who o a buy behringer products aka synths are in any danger. What B is doing now with synths, call it what you will, has been going on for a while with compressors, pedals, mixers, guitar pedals, adat, etc.
So, they are still here, still going strong.
You can’t beat nicley adjusted corporate machine just like that. :grin:
