I think too often people on the forum stereotype the younger generation. So many people here just assume that all the 20 something's are all into pop, hippity hop, rap, techno, ect. That's not the case. There are large numbers of youth interested in the styles people play here.
If ALL the makers started pricing their top end arrangers at least close to their pro workstations (which they should be doing anyways) you'd see more youth playing them. Put yourself in their shoes..., you're young.., not as much income as some of the older keyboardists out there.., you want a top quality arranger but find that'll run you over three grand.., you then find you can get a pro workstation that sounds just as good.., but built better AND for MUCH LESS. If you were them.., what would you do in that situation?
