Drum Machines and where they were used

Postby cutpurseboy » Sun Mar 05, 2017 5:29 pm

I was having a discussion the other week about favourite Drum Machines and the tracks that used them. List in your comments the track and the drum machines that were used. I've posted in here because I don't want to be limited to 1986 as a cut off. But it will be nice to see which years had a preference, or which coast / country
