"Groove-box" and "workstation" should be added to the function list.

Hi SUPABEATPUSHA! Thanks for the feedback.

The concept at Gearogs is to add the specific functions that a piece of gear has.

So, for "Groove-Box", we may expect "Synthesizer" and "Drum Machine" http://www.gearogs.com/browse/gear?function=Synthesizer&function=Drum+Machine - and you can narrow that further, maybe 'Desktop' or 'Portable'?

For "Workstation", I'd expect something like 'Synthesizer", "Sequencer", "Keyboard" http://www.gearogs.com/browse/gear?function=Synthesizer&function=Sequencer&form_factor=Keyboard

Obviously this depends on all the right functions being added to the gear, but it means we can be more precise about what we are looking for for a certain piece of gear. Say you want a workstation with built in effects, http://www.gearogs.com/browse/gear?form_factor=Keyboard&function=Synthesizer&function=Sequencer&function=Effect , or a rackmount workstation with a sampler http://www.gearogs.com/browse/gear?form_factor=19%22+Rackmount&function=Synthesizer&function=Sequencer&function=Sampler

Does that make sense? Let me know what you think!

Hi, nik, thanks for the reply.
Yep makes perfect sense. I just thought gear that was coined as a groove-box or workstation by the manufacturer (of which there are many I assume) would make a worthy category in itself.

On another note, say I was looking for an "80's" synth or a "90's" sampler or the latest "2016" gear... it would be nice to search by manufacturing date, just a thought.

We could add it in, but I guess it would be good to look at the biger picyture and see how many other things would be affected / we'd have to have on the list.

Thanks for the feedback, will keep that in mind for future updates!
