This review is of the base Linn 9000 model without the sampling option. It definitely is part of the LinnDrum heritage but unlike the first two Linns, only about 80% of the stock sounds are fantastic. It really does feel like the prototype for the MPC, with the MPC-60 fully realizing the ideas implemented in the 9000. The sequencer is tight but limited to one MIDI out.
