The Linndrum is "The Funky Drummer" himself, if you program it properly! Considerate that de sounds are samples, this machine sounds a kind of analog. Deep and punchy! Particularly the sequenser is very groovy. Nice vintage box, even when you only look at it.

this is not horribly dated at all! it has a feel all of it's own.

people do not call a stadivarius dated..well this is just as well crafted and actually in the scheme of our universe it is still a very young machine...i mean you would not call a 24 year old human old?...would you? think of all the great classics by all the great composers no one cals them "dated" "old fashioned" this machine is still far to useful to be terible i love it i see why so many still do wanna use it and why so many did!, it will come back to use like lots of other instruments...if not then why are so many software versions of every synth imaginable made?

it has great stock sounds it is easy to operate...takes a little time to get round the creation part like measures and lengths etc but it is a great drum machine i highly recommend to any one who can find one as they are quite a rare item now but do not get ripped off i paid £350 for is mint it used to belong to syco systyms..the people who used to sell fairlights in the uk a yonk ago as it were!!

and it has been looked after and has not a scratch on its surface rally every thing so far! works good it has great sound quality too

In my opinion this is the drum machine with the best stocks sounds and the best feel ever made. The only problem is that like the Oberheims, they were so heavily used in the first half of the 80s that they're often considered dated.

Objectively if you want real drums sounds with the best feel, you can't do better than this. Prince still uses his LM-1 for this reason, and substitutes sound chips to give it the necessary cheezy Roland sounds that have been in vogue for so long.

I had this one if fact it was my true first beat box I used to drive this hard (nice for breakbeats, old school sound,), the volumes panning and tune options gives it flexibility, the sequencer is soo easy and nice to use you ll get better programming beats by ear than using these step sequencers, I had a hard time to sync it to MIDI but I purchased a DMX Midi then and I was using the trigger outs on the DMX to trigger the Linndrum so it behaved like it was MIDI. Nice to have but dont pay more than 250$ US I got mine for 200$ (can.).People cant compare this to a 909 or an 808 its totally different thing you dont use them for the same thing they cant be compared its like comparing a car with a plane both are done to do what they have to.
