Why oh why do these manufacturers send people who obviously don't much about the product they're selling. It just makes me squirm. Send a tech, for the love of god.

To be fair, Jon is a top guy. Often these things just show up prior to a show from central office (and it's not an Alesis only thing) without much warning. When someone like me turns up, they must dread it.

Sometimes, having the new product at the show is an opportunity to see how people interract with it, rather than use it as a PR opportunity
