Re: Drum Machines replacing you
It's nothing to be concerned about. Your argument that they will be 'replacing' drummers was used in the early 1980s. That was thirty years ago and it hasn't happened yet.
Ironically, a lot of the 'real' drums you hear are actually more mechanistic than the programmed drums. Ever heard of quantising audio? Look it up. Even 'real' drummers today are made to sound like machines through various editing procedures and techniques.
I write a lot of music with drum machines and sequenced parts. It's not better or worse, just different.
