"A little rock and roll story: Once upon a time, we all worked for Leon Russell in a faraway magic place called Leon Land.... Ok, so everybody didn't work for Leon, but a lot of people I know did. Leon's personal engineer right before me was a young guitar player from California named Roger Linn. Roger liked Leon's idea of a user-programable drum machine so much, he left Leon to design his first product called the LINN DRUM. I took Roger's place as Leon's engineer when he left. The 1st recordings we made were with a "machine" put together from several pieces Roger brought over in a cardboard box. It wasn't long though before the LINN DRUM was ready, and as they say... the rest is history. Roger evolved the product until the MPC3000 - arguably the best of the bunch - marketed by Akai.
I made a little demo so you can hear the factory sounds.
