the entire early 90s UK hardcore and jungle scene was just samples.... if you had a synthesizer it was either a luxury or you were hiring a professional studio! atari ST and akai s950 being 2 weapons I wouldn't wanna fight against in medieval battle! those 2 things is like a horse and a mace!

I was under the impression Aphex Twin used a drum machine not samples.

Not only is there nothing wrong with it, it's awesome. "Real Musicians" would be silly to deny it.

Of course, Peter Gabriel bought the first Fairlight CMI sold in the UK and used it a smidge on his 3rd solo album (Melt) and extensively on the 4th (Security). Cool video of him recording all sorts of noises to be turned into rhythms and backing tracks for Security over on youtube. Here is a slightly more complete version than the first I found.




Yes that's an old post I'm commenting on, but someone else already necroed this thing up so what the heck *grin*
