The Linn LM-1: The Drum Machine that changed everything

Published on Jul 7, 2018 Alex Ball

"This is the story of the Linn LM-1, the world's first ever digital drum machine. Iconic and incredibly rare, you're unlikely to ever see one (only 500 ever made). One was on sale that had bizarrely been found in a communal bin! The seller was generous enough to let me test it and film it briefly before it went.

Here's a link to the samples recorded from it:
