Orion joins us again. He’s doing scratch’n’roll in front of a tower of synths including a Waldorf Quantum (a unit we at CatSynth have lusted after), a Linnstrument, Sequental P6, AMS Hydrasynth Desktop, and more. It looks like they have also installed the Serge panels from this previous post into the larger studio setup.
Our visit to Roger Linn Design featured both the man himself as we as the LinnStrument.
The LinnStrument is an expressive controller with a grid of continuous sensors that capture independent velocity, X, Y and Z-axis position for each of multiple touches. As such, it is an extremely expressive instrument that can afford control as dextrous as a traditional piano keyboard in some ways more versatile between all the degrees of freedom and abstract layout. It is also quite compact.
While the LinnStrument is primarily MIDI, it would be interesting to see it in a CV-based environment as well.
We were also treated to a demo by Roger Linn, including several of the featured sounds and programs.
We definitely appreciate his time talking with us and showing his invention.
