In the 70's 80's and 90's I used The Linn Drum and Akai's MPC series for drums in most songs. Most Top 40 I listened to back then used programmed drums with midi. Why? Once you appreciate how simple and, IMO great quality samples sound in pop music, it is really hard to look back. All I can say is, thank you to Roger Linn. A mass amount of writer's know what I mean but never talk about this studio gem.
