Unless you're a musician AND a tech head, the name Roger Linn won't ring a bell. But you have heard of prolific artist Prince and J Dilla. Well Linn is the man behind the machines (LinnDrum,& Akai MPC) that made these legends popular and changed the way music is created.
Mr. Linn has a new toy -- the LinnStrument. It looks like an iPad with a grid of pressure sensitive note buttons to capture expression, pitch and timbre of each note individually and all at once. The product is not yet ready for mass consumption but take a sneak peek at the LinnStument prototype in action.
