Linn 9000 Brochure Scans
Here is a scanned copy of an original Linn 9000 Brochure. Front, Middle, and Back. I believe there was a version on RogerLinnDesign but only the front image. This little gem came with a Linn 9000 manual that we just picked up. Click on images for full size.
Some favorite quotes from the Brochure:
The Linn 9000 is a dream I’ve had for a long time. It answers nearly all of the requests I’ve received from top recording artists over the years. To a far greater degree than has existed before, it allows the non-technical artist to quickly and accurately realize the music which exists in his mind.
- Roger Linn
The Linn 9000 realizes all the dreams you’ve ever had for a Digital Drum Machine, and it satisfies all your needs for a MIDI keyboard Recorder. Imagine having all the sensitivity of a real drummer: true touch-sensitive dynamics; exacting hi-hat decay amounts for every note; programmable tempos, mix and tuning for each sequence.
The 9000 also offers 18 of the longest and highest fidelity digital drum sounds yet to date. If you want alternate sounds load them in from cassette, an optional 3.5″ disk drive, or sample your own sounds using the optional sampling card.
The true beauty is the simplicity of the operating system. To record or edit a specific part in a song, simply fast forward, rewind or auto locate to the bar number, then punch-in and record just as you would on a multi-track tape recorder.
Once you’ve programmed perfect drum and percussion parts, use the same comfortable recording and editing facility to record every nuance of your MIDI keyboard performance on up to 32 polyphonic tracks (each assignable to one of the 16 MIDI channels).
The 9000 operates the way you’ve always wanted – Simple, yet without compromise.
