Linndrum 2: Nicht mehr in diesem Jahr

Es wird wohl 2009 werden, biss wir uns die neue Linndrum ins Haus holen können: Dave Smith und Roger Linn haben das Design völlig überarbeitet, so dass es hoffentlich überhaupt nicht mehr so aussieht wie das klobige dritte Layout hier:

Linndrum 2 discarded 3rd design

I‘m sorry to report that we won‘t be shipping in 2008 and I can‘t yet offer a new estimated ship date. The good news is that it’s turned into a significantly more powerful and creative product. The bad news is that we‘d prefer not to release details of the new design because it’s so cool that I don‘t want to show our cards to the competition. However, I do want to thank all those who wrote in with suggestions because this interactive design process has very much helped to change what we thought the product originally should be into what we now know you really want. So please hold your questions while we‘re hard at work on it, and I‘ll be periodically updating this page as we release new information. If you‘d like to be notified when we update this page with something significant, please click here to join our LinnDrum II email list.

For those of you who are new to LinnDrum II, its new subtitle is „Beat-Centric Digital Audio Workstation with Integrated Analog Synthesis“. Inspired by how the MPC product line that I (Roger) originally created for Akai has evolved a new genre of musical instrument, LinnDrum II aspires to raise the bar beyond the current crop of high-end pad-oriented music production station products in order to enable musicians around the world to better realize the next wave of beat-oriented music.

Ein bischen Angst macht mir der hochtrabende neue Name: ob da versucht wird, die Eierlegendewollmilchsau zu kreieren, die dann viel zu viel kann, um wirklich nutzbar zu sein? Die Spannung steigt in jedem Fall.
