Don't DO that! I very nearly hit the "buy it now" button before I read the fine print and saw that you only get a CD-R of LM-1 samples for your $20. Damn!

Are those samples of your Linn? I have to ask because (1) my computer's sound card hasn't worked for months now, and (2) I'm too technologically inept to be able to do anything with samples. But I can sense wooden cheeks and orange stripes, so I'm pretty sure that whatever is in the zipped file is good.

I wish!

Only about 500 were ever made. They sold for $8,000 in 1980.

This zipfile is indeed a collection of samples from a real Linn LM-1. I can't remember where I got it from but they sound good to me!

I far prefer the Linn and DMX drum machines to the analog kind. I bought that sample cd off that guy a couple of years ago. Sure $20 is kinda crazy, but at that time there were no free LM-1 sample sets on the internet to speak of. At first I got it and was disappointed because they're so much more lo-fi than the LM-2 sounds. But the key is to use the samples at their higher pitches. I now prefer it to the LM-2. And of course it has all the Prince sounds including the really low-pitched sidestick sound from Doves Cry.

I am still trying to find a good replacement for FruityLoops on the Mac. I have iDrum, but it lacks pitch shifting on the individual tones! Wtf!
