NAMM 2010 - Any Rumors?

Post by Baron von Case » Mon Jan 11, 2010 12:45 am

So Winter NAMM is in a few days. Anyone here going? Heard any rumors?

Here's hoping for an affordable keyboard controller with tons of knobs and faders, an X-Y pad, a cross fader, aftertouch, breath controller, joystick... preferably under $3000.

Hmmm. Why on earth would you want something that has one single voice, and cannot do anything you could with ease achieve with Operator -> EQ 8 -> Saturator ??? With an nearly infinite number of voices, with clip envelopes, with additional FX with.. ... .. In Live everyone is complaining if something has a latency of 1 Sample, here we talking MIDI, which means several ms of unpredictable jitter. Why would you want a LED 7 Segment 3 digit interface if you could instead type in the frequency of the first resonance as 35.7Hz in EQ8...

Jürgen Michaelis is a nice guy, and a good engineer,too but I wish he would come up with something more exciting!

Not a rumour - just hope.

Someone please make a "mackie big knob" that is also
a firewire audio interface. Preferably not Mackie :)

It'll just be Roger, Dave is no longer a part of the project:

"Update - December 17, 2009:

Not too much to say but I wanted to post an update. As I mentioned below, Dave and I learned along the way that his customers want a different product than mine, and it's too expensive in today's economy to make one product that pleases both. So I'm working on one or more products that, while different from the early LinnDrum II designs shown below, will be powerful, creative and not too expensive. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised. I can't give any product details or release date estimates, but I (and also Dave, by the way) won't be showing any such product at NAMM. (Roger Linn Design no longer exhibits at trade shows anyway because I don't think they make much sense in the internet era.) Regarding Dave's product plans, I can't speak for him but it wouldn't hurt to visit his site periodically, if for no other reason than he makes some very fine products. When I have any interesting updates, I promise to post them here."

That's kind of disappointing as I'm sure they put a lot of time and thought into the project. Probably wasted some funds too!

The designs looked awesome too.

Since when do companies let customers dictate what direction a product goes??? Is that something new? And the customer is given full authority to fuck with release dates!?!

Yeah,
if they had buit it, it would have sold.

A nice analogue drm machine (not machine drum but real analogue) would have been mighty cool. ..

Modular for me for the time being. . .

Still Robert's points were quite right i guess, substitute ableton distortion for Wavearts, guitar rig / amplitube / UAD / and whatever else and you probably can do loads more. ..
I slipped into a daze, whilst I was there I heard the most startling music, it was at once familiar and alien, reassuring and unsettling.

Woah, that looks awesome! Or not now that I read the rest of the posts. Still I bet it sounds good. But a box to make one sound? I'm confused.

FREE keyboard controller with tons of knobs and faders, an X-Y pad, a cross fader, aftertouch, breath controller, and a joystick to the first 1000 people to arrive!
