Na, pretty sure he's serious. And if you check out his other videos, he also pronounces chord wrong. He doesn't realize the "ch" is pronounced as a 'K' or a hard C. He says ch as in the word cheese. "Ch-ord."

This looks like a psychotropic reaction. No wonder it's so popular...

I personally love the RW for what it is and for what it costs. A cheap sequencer with some drum sounds thrown in and constant gate for additional clocking. I've even grown to like it's bass synth, but only for subby sounds. The RW's bass part midi-out, tempo read out, editing, gate, and timing options have turned my beatstep into a paperweight.

RW and the first 3 volcas, live (the sample at beginning was jokingly dropped in as a response to an elsewhere-thread regarding the RW):
