  1. I wonder if this emulates the companding architecture of the DAC’s if the original hardware and lo-fi ‘gritty’ character ?

    The VST version: vLinn LM-1 did an excellent job of it !

  2. Very disappointing.
    Uses samples of the Linndrum, not the LM1.
    Sounds are not close enough to those on the Linndrum either.
    Has a few buggs: doesn’t always want to record.
    Erasing individual instruments doesn’t work.
    The two congas sound the same.
    Only one tom, so to record different pitches one has to use automation.
    In automation mode the app acts funny and everything defaults to unity, so all volume and panning settings are gone.
