This is the most complete collection of LinnDrum samples around. We’ve taken a Linn Drum LM-2, sampled the individual outputs into a classic Emu Sp-1200 sampler, pitched them every which way, run them through an SSL console, recorded them to a mastering 1/4″ tape machine and finally into Apogee conversion (much the same process as our TR 808 Samples). To achieve additional depth and variety we’ve also used a Roland Re-201 Space Echo to give these Linndrum samples even more character and depth.
Our approach to creating these samples is simple – keep everything extremely useful and playable for producers. We haven’t gone overboard with the processing – in some cases we will not record a hit to tape, in other cases we will bypass the SP-1200 or compression and EQ. We purposefully do not use reverbs when recording our samples, so that you, the producer, can create the space necessary within your track to make these samples shine. And while we aim at saturated, punchy sounds, we make sure that there is enough room for you to add your own processing if you’d like to.
Big Console Sound
This is a classic boogie, disco, hip hop, and house 12 bit drum machine popularized by the likes of Prince, Human League, D Train and countless other artists. With many drum machines, but especially the LinnDrum, what you’re hearing on these classic records is much more than just the machine on its own – you’re hearing big console compression, EQ, filtering, tape saturation, varispeed tape playback, and above all else, creative production. To capture this same energy with our LinnDrum samples library, we’ve taken the same path, and added the classic grittiness of an Emu SP-1200 along the way. We’ve re-pitched many of the hits on the tape machine, giving you more sounds than the original drum machine offers.
The end result is an extremely useful library of over 500 24 bit 44.1 kHz saturated, tight and punchy wav files, with enough headroom to allow you for even more processing if you’d like. Our LinnDrum samples have not been normalized, or processed digitally at all, and the filenames are all under 16 characters for you MPC users.
Enjoy! And as always, please let us know any feedback you might have.
