http://www.cbc.ca/radio/q/schedule-...-tribute-to-disruptive-drum-machine-1.3283407 The Podcast on this episode is cool too. http://www.cbc.ca/radio/q/schedule-for-thursday-october-22-2015-1.3283392 I bought one of these in 1981, put together a techno pop band, programmed enough pop songs to play a full night and within 2 weeks after contacting one of the most powerful booking agents in Canada, we were booked solid for 6 nights a week, 47 weeks a year, 18 month in advance for 18 years until I retired and started this site, Recording Org. Some might think that wasn't that big a deal (being in a tech band from the 80's) but I'm pretty grateful to come from that era who made a living through it all because it paved the road to DAW technology today. Everything I use today is all from that generation. DAW's are simply samplers on steroids. I know many recordist shun the generation and music who embraced drum machines and samplers. I used samplers back then to create cool sounds and effects because there wasn't loops sold. Sampler were simply put, DAW's in their infancy. We were the generation creating, not stealing. , I still use samplers to create / sound design. . For those who are interested in what its all about, it was a really fun time. There is a new documentary coming called "808" Here is the Trailer .
