“Instrumachines”

Great new term for the tools used by DJ’s who have been working very hard to add real-time performing to their performances.

But pushing a button 30 times in 30 minutes versus pushing it 30,000 times in 30 minutes, presents an order-of-magnitude difference that you can feel in your bones. It’s the difference between playing a piano, and playing a CD.
