Alex Ball has looked at some classic gear in recent times, including the Jupiter 4, ARP 2600 and the EMU SP-1200 sampler. In his most recent video ,he takes a look at the legendary LinnDrum, going over the back story of the machine, complete with his now obligatory 'face review' of the sounds and an explanation of how it works. He follows up with connectivity, the legacy and finally a super-funked up jam.
This drum machine can be heard on countless classic records. and was famously by Prince on tracks like 'When Doves Cry' and 'I Would Die 4 U'. Alex has made a free sample pack available with all of the LinnDrum sounds recorded in high fidelity - very nice indeed! More videos on his youtube channel.
