VLinn 2 for the Mac is here! The original Linn LM-1 Drum Computer was created in 1980 by Roger Linn. It was the first drum machine to use digital samples of acoustic drums, and one of the first with a programmable sequencer. Prince, Phil Collins, The Human League, The Art of Noise, Thompson Twins, Stevie Wonder, Gary Numan, Depeche Mode, Jean-Michel Jarre, Vangelis, John Carpenter, Todd Rundgren and many more artists have featured it on their recordings. I sold my own LM-1 two decades ago and always regretted it. The unique sound of the LM-1 is highly regarded and sampling its output has never fully captured its true feel. VLinn reproduces the internal circuitry and filtering of the LM-1, reading and decoding the original EPROM data images in real time using the exact decode table from the AM6070 DAC. Use of the stock LM1 EPROMS has been possible with the kind permission of Roger Linn. VLinn also allows you to experiment with different EPROMS from the Linndrum library, DMX, DrumTraks, or even create your own. Aly James Lab VLinn 2 is available now for €40 (around $45). It requires OS X 10.6 or later and an AU or VST host app.
