LinnStrument is a revolutionary 200-pad MIDI controller that captures three dimensions of each finger's movement for subtle and precise control of note volume, pitch and timbre, polyphonically.

Perform natural vibrato, bends, wind/bow expression and more, just like on acoustic instruments.

The grid of 200 note pads is arranged as 8 rows of 25 semitones each, like a guitar or any stringed instrument, permitting note-to-note pitch slides not possible in a piano-key layout.

200 six-color LEDs indicate scale notes in any of 6 colors.

I've had my Linnstrument for about a week.

I've really enjoyed getting into it and learning to customize some settings, etc.

Here's my quick, initial response:

Great design, craftsmanship and overall layout. Roger's customer service is unprecedented.

I found it's been a great instrument to help push me into new directions, especially because I can't just rely on habits and chops.

The more challenging side is trying to learn and perform music I have already learned. Not so much because of the places my hands want to go by default, but primarily because the Linnstrument doesn't have physical references like a traditional music keyboard, and because the pads are quite small.

I've noticed that so far, I've never seen a video where the performer is just playing without looking at the instrument. On other instruments, I can quite easily play with my eyes closed. This controller requires more attention.

I'm not saying that as a negative, just an observation...

Will Chapman.

Hi all, .

I purchased a LinnStrument 128 from RogerLinnOnlineStore. My goal was to make some cover versions of Indian Classical Music with SWAM Violin. Unfortunately, It's not working well for me.

So now I'm planning to sell the same at a cheaper price. Currently, I'm based in Dublin, Ireland so I can ship it all across Europe. The price is 900 Euro.

If interested let me know in comments or in my personal email.

Thanks and Regards, .
