Aly James Lab has launched vLinn LM-1, a virtual Linn LM-1 drum instrument for Windows.
The VLINN LM-1 DRUM VST provides the closest experience to the real thing because it is not based on samples, instead it accurately models the clocks and counters that reads EPROMS memory feeding the AM6070 DACs to decode the EPROMS data in realtime, models the CEM 3320 filters with tweakable control over the CV pulses shapes to let more or less transient pass through unfiltered or completely bypass them, special hihat circuitry and VCA providing different hihat sound on each trigger and decay control, separate tuning for all voices with already a wider range without tweaking the electronics…separate outputs for your DAW, velocity handling etc…
You will maintain that raw sound at every tune! On top of the cake 7+1 voices can be replaced with external EPROM data like on a real machine… Opening up a whole new range of sound, still being processed by the circuitry.
The plugin is available for Windows (VST), for a minimum donation of 15 EUR.
