There are always a bunch of camps dueling in what I term the ‘fat middle’ of clubby music making. On the edges most controversies fade away. For example, at the time software synthesizers matured, late nineties, hardware purists rose to denigrate computer-based synths. More recently, the strong and fast moving wave of IOS (iPad/iPhone/iPod,) music making has evoked a reaction.
These arguments neither get resolved, nor matter.
