New LinnDrum II Design

Read carefully...the new pic is not the design they are going with...they aren't showing the design that they are going with.

interesting. the third design looks larger than the previous ones. i can only wonder what the MSRP will be. the design is still evolving, so i'm sure it's too early to tell.

Sounds great! I hope they don't keep adding stuff to it where it will never get released!

Go Roger & Dave!

Exactly... but if they do it right, I guess it'll help the longevity of the machine.

Hmmm, it's looking less and less like something I want. I hope they don't end up trying to make it into a machine that tries to do everything, I kind of prefer something a bit more specialised.

That third pic looks like it's more of an MPC4000/MV-8800 kind of machine, I was hoping for something more like an MPC2500 crossed with an X-Base 999. Oh well, I guess we'll see what it is when it finally comes out.

Sure does... I'm thinking the same way. I was hoping for something that offers something different than MPCs and Jomoxes already offer...

That said, I'd be ok with it being something I don't want...

Aw, I was real excited about the last design. The latest design render looks way less interesting.

I'm not sure I like the idea of a "Beat Centric Digital Audio Workstation," either. Here's hoping it doesn't try to be a full-on DAW. I'm cool with it being an all-in-one compositional beat-box. But as soon as they start putting some mic pres on it, my interest will drop substantially.

I have a DAW, thank you. I don't have an analog synth/sampler beat-box.

Still, it'll be interesting to see where they go with it.

Yeah.

And what sort of drum machine needs a port for connecting a monitor/display?

Definitely still interested in the product although I am a little surprised by the DAW line.

Maybe it would have been better had they stuck with it being "just" a drum machine. I already have one MPC 4000.

Anyway, we shall see what develops. I am thinking this could be one pricy bit of kit! #-o

Ah yes, in the truest sense of the term DAW... :oops:

The price has to be in the $2000+ range at this point. Also, no talk of the one without analog.
