or why neve and certain instruments that relate to albums that sold millions, stuff from the beatles, pink floyd etc. they sound good but they have a sound that people are after. that "colored" sound.
what is the key element in the success of the x0x rolands is that with these boxes people made a new kind of music. not just rock with some different electronic sounds, as was the intention of the designers. a whole new fking SPECIES. (well sort of - you get my drift) IOW it was abused
The point is that any capable machine with a fat sequencer and signature sound would've done the trick. And still will do. the 808 is cool and does what it does really well. but there's WAY more out there. I love the 808 but a LOT of unimaginative trash was made with it as well.
