VHS Akai MPC-60 training video featuring Roger Linn!

Here’s a great find! When Akai first release the Roger Linn designed MPC-60 sampler/sequencer, they also released this in depth training video staring Roger Linn himself!

Who better to explain this historic piece of gear to you than the designer himself?

Roger Linn’s futuristic MIDI controller, the “Linnstrument” may be the first realistic string emulation on MIDI!

Roger Linn, inventor of the legendary LinnDrum has designed an equally innovative midi controller that allows players new forms of expression! What resembles a lighted step sequencer is actually a new type of midi controller that allows for linear sliding pitch bends, much like using a slide on a guitar, pressure sensitivity, and timbre all at the tip of one finger.

I love how all these years Roger Linn is still coming up with new things! Check out some of these videos that shows how interesting this new technology really is. I think the slide guitar and pedal steel are especially impressive. I don’t think anyone had been able to control sounds this way in MIDI before now.

Very Very cool.
