Sorry, I knew you were just disagreeing.
I'm 53 so have no real clue what younger players and listeners are into. My opinion is based on the simple fact that all the groovebox sales activity seems to be in the used market where price is a prime factor. When I was younger I always bought used gear because that's all I had the money for. In fact I have never bought a synth that was brand new unless it was some sort of dealer blowout.
The market is always
conducive to dance music. DJs in the USA are more popular than ever, having taken over most gigs that used to call for a live dance band (weddings, school dances, dance clubs). So the only real question is what kind of music will people want to dance to in the future.
I listened to Hatfield and the North at Rainbow. They were very wonderful and they made my heart a prisoner.
