I did this a while back @ my local Best Buy's music department when the Gaia was first released.

The music store has since closed and after filming the demo, my son caught pneumonia. After days of staying at home with him and trips to the doctor, I forgot all about the video.

The Best Buy guys were pretty cool, as I visited them because their store was right around the corner from my work and they were nice enough to let me do a demo as long as I gave them a shout out.

Better late then never, but you guys were awesome!

And my son is now fine BTW.

So without further ado, here's the video in it's unedited state. Thanks for watching!


I just uploaded this to youtube. the above explains everything.

That's one nice filter sound for a VA!

Good powerful bottom end to it too.

Yes, powerful bottom. It needs a good hook so it learns its place.

he was using my cannon VIXIA HD HG 20 camera. But for the audio, I was going right into the camera.

I forgot how I did it, but i had split the audio between the camera and the amp in the back, which is why you don't hear any background noise.

Finally watched: it does sound really good. I've had plenty of opportunities to try one @ GC but I merley scoffed. I blame the climate of gear snobbery pervading all teh forumz.

Good demo.

I Thank You.
