the mpc60 is older and gritter, but was the main machine in use when a lot of that music was produced.
Well-stated, but just remember that the reason why the South was stuck on that crunk/trap sound is because all the new MPC's came out in NYC as NYC used to be the first point-of-sale/point-of-entry U.S. market to get imported stuff as well as newly-distributed American-made new inventions (e.g. new clothesline/gear, new electronics, new CDs).

So Southern producers were going to pawn shops to get the defunct MPC's NY producers were throwing away or pawning off and that's how the south Hip Hop was born.
