great app, great support, 80s all over again

This is such a great app, true to the core of this 80s monster of a drum machine. spectacular recreation, when you hear the sounds you’re transported to the era and you recognize almost immediately what song used that sound. looking forward to the growth of this app..

Love it!

Updating my review to reiterate how much I love this app. I gave it 5 stars before, and I’ll give it 5 stars again. It’s honestly my favorite drum machine app, and the one I go to more often than not. I think it does an excellent job capturing the Linn vibe. The mix control for each part alters the characteristic of the sound, and gives you a large palette of sounds to work with. My only real complaint is that I wish the Congas and Toms had separate pan controls for the high and low pads, so that you are able to pan the high and low Congas/Toms independently. Other than that, I couldn’t be happier with this app.

It’s nice to have a dedicated Linn app, versus messing with samples. I have the Classic Machines pack for Cubasis, and I think this app does a better job emulating the Linn Drum. If you’re a fan of the Linn Drum, this is definitely a must-have, especially if you want to be able to fine tune each of the sounds to your liking.

Great drum app especially as an AUv3

Love the set of drum apps from Elliott Garage. They have a nice retro sound and i really dig the interface. Now that all apps, including this one, are updated and can also be used as audio units it really makes them a great collection of apps to own.

Also very good support from thr developer.

Some of the older reviews are very harsh although people might have their reasons to be that way, but some of the mentioned issues seem to have been resolved with the recent update. Syncing works great with Link.

I think you should still give this app and the other ones from this developer a chance. You can’t go very wrong at this price point. There is something about these apps that makes me keep coming back to them. Thumbs up 👍👍
