Linn 9000

Posted By: SuperUser On:


The original MPC60… The Linn 9000 came from Roger Linn, responsible for the most popular sampler/sequencer/drum machine workstations in the world. And the Linn 9000 was one of his best designs. It debuted in 1984 and sported several innovations that would still be sophisticated by today’s standards.

It has a built-in 32-track MIDI sequencer with sampling capability, 18 sounds with velocity sensitive drum pads, a mixer section, programmable hi-hat decay, panning, and a nice big LCD screen. Extra options include SMPTE, sampling and a floppy disk drive.
Truly amazing for 1984. However, at this – the peak of Linn Electronics product line, Linn closed down and no more than 1,100 of these machines were produced. Anyone with a Linn 9000 not only has a great sounding sequencer/drum machine workstation, but also a piece of synthesizer music history. Simple in design but powerful in practice!
