Recently, our friends over at Reverb put out a short documentary on the history of the drum machine, one of modern music's key pillars. Whether you use hardware, or strictly samples, we owe our current rhythms to the machines. From the early Elka machines, to the legendary 808 & 909, the drum machine forever changed the landscape of music.
