LinnDrum - what you always wanted to know

video upload by The Synth King

"'The LinnDrum (often incorrectly referred to as the LM-2) is a drum machine manufactured by Linn Electronics between 1982 and 1985. About 5,000 units were sold.

Its high-quality samples, flexibility and affordability made the LinnDrum popular; it sold far more units than its predecessor (the LM-1) and its successor (the Linn 9000) combined. Roger Linn re-used the moniker on the LinnDrum Midistudio and the Roger Linn Designs' LinnDrum II. The LinnDrum was used on many recordings throughout the 1980s, including international hits such as Frankie Goes to Hollywood's "Relax", a-Ha's "Take On Me", Harold Faltermeyer's "Axel F", Billy Idol's "Eyes Without a Face", Deniece Williams's "Let's Hear It for the Boy", and Madonna's "Lucky Star".'
