Sinndrum Description

Simple. Intuitive. Music creation has to be. 

The LinnDrum was an iconic piece of Kit. Manufactured by Linn Electronics from 1982 through to '85 it was the first drum machine to feature actual recorded samples. 

We took our go-to LinnDrum samples, which were collected many moons ago from an old LinnDrum found in cardboard box in a mates shed, then we passed them through a Studer A820 2inch tape machine at both 30 and 7.5 inches per second.

We then recorded the samples back into Pro Tools and carefully edited them. The edited samples were loaded into Kontakt and scripted to ensure the interface is simple and easy to use. If it requires a manual to get started, it's too complex.


Enjoy, The Sonus Team. 

The Sonus Instruments Sinndrum requires the full version of Native Instruments Kontakt version 5.8 to function and internet access in order to download the instrument. The downloads are not available on a hard drive.
