LinnStrument Slide Guitar and LinnStrument Cell

July 8, 2014 · Posted in Uncategorized 

Roger Linn shared another sneak preview of his newLinnStrument in action – doing ‘blues slide guitar’. 

The demo highlights the malleability of notes on the LinnStrument. Linn stretches and slides individual notes around the instrument, articulating the sounds expressively in ways more familiar to string musicians than keyboardists.

The LinnStrument is currently under development. Release date and pricing is still to be announced.

In this video, Beethoven’s “Für Elise” is playing in Logic Pro X as a MIDI file.

The LinnStrument is connected over USB and receives the MIDI notes in real-time. MIDI channel 1 is shown in the left split and channel 2 in the right split. Each note highlights all the possible cells that can be played to perform the same piece.

The LinnStrument automatically takes the layout, octave and transposition settings into account.

This feature provides an excellent teaching aid since it works with any existing MIDI file. By varying the speed at which the MIDI notes are sent to the LinnStrument, the piece can start slow at first and be gradually sped up.

Obviously, this can also be used for cool light effects, it’s not necessary to make the MIDI notes play sound. A separate method using MIDI CC messages is also available to directly control cell colors by coordinates without them being related to MIDI notes
