Let's Play with Model 15

Over the course of my Reef Vlogs I've come to see two benefits to showing my failures. In reefing people can learn a lot from watching someone else's mistakes, simply because they won't repeat them. The other benefit is indicating to the viewers, "Hey look we all fuck up, it's fine." Because we all fuck up, and it is fine. You shouldn't feel bad about mistakes, and I shouldn't pretend that I don't make them.

As a YouTuber you are strongly disincentivized to ever hint at failure. You get so much shit for the smallest mistake. One guy strongly insisted that I should delete my iM1 video and redo it entirely because I misspoke and said "Yamaha" instead of "Korg" in the intro. I pinned that comment in effigy so you can read it and my reply. At the time I was fairly disheartened by his callousness. Now I view his comment as self-defeating. I don't think it benefits anyone by me pretending I'm somehow flawless.

All of this is a long-winded wind up to say, "Oops." I took an ambitious road as I tackled Model 15, and I failed.

You're most welcome! Thank you for requesting it, or I probably would have continued to put it off.
There aren’t a lot of tutorials for Model 15 out there. I thought it was needed 😊

I wonder if there is a way to make the patch cables transparent or switch the view on/off so that it’s easier to see what’s underneath. It gets crowded pretty fast.
I remember the kerfuffle that iM1 video caused; it was unbelievable, over such a small mistake. It reminded me of the time when I was about 12 years old and accidentally called my teacher “Mum” instead of “Miss”. I got years of shit for that.

@Be The Noise, you can make the cables transparent by double tapping the screen with two fingers.

Thanks to both of you!
Well done...Yes, its one of my favorites and yes there are many tips and tricks associated with this guy and the sound is unbelievable on my 12.9 2017 Ipad. A true beauty and joy to behold.

If you make a mistake and it sounds good, do it again. If you make a mistake and it sounds bad, it’s probably jazz (or something like that).

Dude, when it comes to putting videos on YouTube, there is no “fail”. You put up a video, if people like it cool. If not then they should just move on. I’m amazed at the number of people that don’t like a video will not only watch it, but take the time to actually tell you they don’t like it. It’s fucking insane.

I’ve done a few videos, you were even... um... kind(?) enough to post them... it’s a major pain in the ass to even do it half assed. You actually take time and effort!

Moral of the story... make “shitty videos” a part of your brand proposition then you can say it’s intentional or ironic or something. 😜
