Who do you figure are the top earning names in this space?

Answers from the previous thread included Andrew Huang, Davie504, and Multiplier. Who else?

Let's try not to get this thread deleted with a bunch of off-topic nonsense this time guys.

I like Andrew Huang's Youtube videos. I've never heard of Davie or Multiplier, but I do know Christian Henson and Rick Beato. I doubt either of those fellows is hurting financially. :)
I'm involved with photography & audio. For more info, take a look at my site:

A lot of Huang's music isn't for me, he over-edits his videos and his presenter style is too millennial for my tastes so I probably shouldn't like him, but somehow his generally relentless enthusiasm wins me over. Plus there's an underlying sad element because he knows he's starting to lose his hearing.

I still wouldn't buy anything he recommends just because he recommended it though.

Well, when they feature a product and show you cool things you can do with it, they are influencing people to buy those products. Huang has done episodes where he does cool stuff with Europa, touché, modulars, etc. - and it makes me want it sometimes

Someone who thinks he's super hip, and thinks he can make others hip too. A trendsetter. With power affectations. Something like a modern social media Goebbels.

I'd like the biggest earning influencer to be a complete surprise, like Chandler Guitar who does the Melda videos.

is that more about the characters who are influencers? or is that what an influencer is?

What's the difference? :D

Must be fun though. You say jump, and they say How high. And noone even realizes it.

well there might be some who dont act that way, bit due to popularity and as mentioned above using a product, could be said to be an influencer.

unless what you said is the actual criteria :)

It might have been cycnical, but, I think that's it really. :P At least I can't understand the braindead way of going on Youtube to watch a "10 reasons why you should not..." video, and live your life according to what someone preaches there.

Oh, as we're at it: Should I buy the Arturia or the Synapse OB-Xa emu? I really can't decide, and some big master should tell me what to do, because I so insecure. :(

This isn't a "would you buy something an influencer recommended" thread. You're all very very smart for not buying something that somebody popular recommended. Ok, moving on.

If you still aren't clear on what an influencer is, maybe this will help (literally first result in Google):
