Roger Linn: designing instruments

11th May 2020

In 1980, Roger Linn designed the first drum machine with samples of a drum kit, the LM-1. Along with the LinnDrum and the Linn 900, Roger’s inventions played an important role in the sound of the 1980s, which can be heard on recordings from Michael Jackson to Prince.

40 years on, Roger is still inventing instruments. His latest instrument is the Linnstrument, a fretted surface equipped with pressure sensors. Notes are laid out in a similar way to the guitar, and the sensors capture the pressure and lateral movements to render vibratos and tremolos.

In this talk, Roger will present the Linnstrument and discuss his past inventions, and approach to designing them.
