Freakin sick. Great idea.
It reminds me of these ugly things:
no it doesn't.
Yeah, don't see the connection.
Too bad the LinnStrument is so expensive, it looks most useful.
This thing is cool as heck! I want one. Seems rather expensive but it's a great concept, appeals to me a lot.
Wow, that's quite impressive. Linn is a wizard with those things.
I always fantasize about these Boutique instruments like this and the Eigenharp. Very strange but probably wonderful to learn.
I would have loved to have got them and mastered them if I had another chance and they already existed way back when.
Kids these days are so lucky.
Clearly the best, most musical MIDI controller possible. Knowing the major scale and music theory and the LinnStrument has infinite possibilities. It can also be played on the body with a guitar strap. You just need a reliable, portable DAW which seems to be a MAC with Logic at least. I just have Windows PCs and Sonar which sometimes is pushing it with analog inputs.
I didnt watch the whole video, but I dont see how it's much different than the Haaken (sp?) Continuum that Jordan Rudess from Dream Theater has been using for years... Maybe just the way you can change the layout on the fly. Still a really cool product.
It's different in the same way a black and white keyboard is different from a guitar. The Continuum is a fancy virtual electronic clavier keyboard, (pitch on X axis) and the Linnstrument is a fancy virtual electronic fretboard. (pitch on X and Y axis)
The Linnstrument is also way cheaper than the Continuum.
Wow, I didn't expect to be impressed but this thing is really expressive!
Too bad his stuff is typically so expensive.
Probably at least $1000 cheaper. The Continuum is an amazing pece of technology, X,Y and Z location, pressure. aftertouch on top of note velocity... But Way overkill for 99% of keyboard/synth users.
I could swear that Linn has been demoing this thing for a few years now...maybe eventually it will actually go into production.
Might want to look at the Snyderphonics Manta while waiting. Not as deep in features, best used if you know MaxMSP, but in production. And it looks pretty with all the LEDs. Or the Madrona Labs Soundplane, which the Linn reminds me a lot of.
been wanting something like this for how he demonstrates the violin, seems very expressive
