As a DJ getting the latest drum machine is just like getting the latest "hood rich" car. You will notice every few years people in the hood are driving what has been deemed the "hot car" to have. It used to be big body cars then it was sports cars. These days it runs from 300's to Dodge Chargers and all the players are driving Jags. You will see all the "producers" buying the latest MPC despite having the three previous models and I'm too broke to try to keep up with the Jones's
The other problem is that EVERYBODY's shit is going to sound exactly the same for the next 5 years (or until the next model comes out).
