Because it was a decade when none of the synthesizers had knobs! Even 
though electronic dance music is not my main thing, I was OVERJOYED 
when it came along and made it cool to have knobs again. And all 
this amazing stuff like the Nord Modular, Rebirth, Reaktor, etc. 

Good riddance to the Yamaha DX7's one-slider user interface.
