Roger Linn stops by DSI for a Linnstrument prototype demo

November 20, 2013 · Posted in Uncategorized 

Roger dropped by the office to give us a sneak peek of his great LinnStrument prototype. The LinnStrument is triggering our Prophet 12 Module prototype as the sound source. This is not the final design or form factor of the LinnStrument, but it was fun to see it in action and play around with it. It is extremely intuitive and expressive. Can’t wait for the production model!

The heart of LinnStrument is a pressure-sensitive multi-touch surface scanned at high speed and resolution. Each touch is sensed in three dimensions with loudness controlled by pressure, pitch controlled by left-right movement and timbre controlled by forward-backward movement. We call this 3D Note Expression. It’s also polyphonic, with these three dimensions captured independently and simultaneously for all fingers. With this level of subtle control, you’ll find little use for envelope generators or LFOs because your finger movements do a better job of controlling a note’s envelope, vibrato, pitch slides, tremolo, bends and other musical gestures, just like on acoustic instruments. And because these three dimensions are sensed for each finger simultaneously, you can do things like performing a string quartet with four fingers.
