I made a couple of patches that cause the micron to freeze up every time, to much modulation I think. After it freezes everything stops working; keyboard, knobs, buttons...except the volume knob, but the sound continues to play and evolve randoml. All sounds are from the micron, recorded with ableton live, post processing was limited to normalizing the stereo wav file and converting it to mp3.
I did some more takes with better stereo spread on the micron patches. I also added a touch of reverb, these sound much better. Check out the "Freeze Mode (noise)" player here:
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.
