Which digital instruments was used in the digi-age?

Postby Laurits » Tue Aug 12, 2014 9:22 pm

Hello friends
I have tried to search around on the board (and the rest of the internet) for finding the answer to this question, since i presumed it must have been asked before, but i was not that lucky, so i hope you will bare with me if this has been up before :D

Which instruments/equipment were used to produce music in the digital era in Jamaica in the 80´s? Of course i am aware of the use and popularity of the Casio keyboard, but which model was used? And which kind of drum machines was used? Of course different producers have different approaches and preferences, but as far as i am aware the explotion of dancehall tunes in the last half of the 80´s in JA can, more or less, be put down to the minimized costs of producing music that way, so i assume that some specific models of keyboard and drum machines must have been "must-haves" for the producers of the time.

Thanks in advance.
