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.
