What’s Inside?

LinnDrum History

The LinnDrum has fifteen 8-bit 28 kHz ~ 35 kHz digitally sampled drum sounds: bass drum, snare, side-stick snare, hi-hat, crash cymbal, ride cymbal, three tom-toms, cabasa, tambourine, high and low congas, cowbell, and hand-claps. Like the LM-1, it provided a sequencer for programming rhythm patterns, a built-in mixer, and individual output jacks for each sound.

The LinnDrum improved on the LM-1 in many ways including the addition of crash and ride cymbal samples, five external trigger inputs, and the ability to replace built-in sounds with new sounds on EPROM chips. The LinnDrum sampled sounds from 28 to a 35 kHz sample rate. Also, the LinnDrum was $2,000 less than the LM-1. While on the LinnDrum only the snare and rimshot can be tuned together, and the tom and conga samples can be tuned separately. The Hi-Hats can also have the decay adjusted allowing for a wide range of uses. The LM-1, on the other hand, allows every sound to be individually tuned. Although, if a user desires more tuning capabilities, a third-party modification can be made to allow for everything to be tuned.
