Legendary music product designer, MPC creator and Grammy winner Roger Linn of Roger Linn Design will be appearing at the upcoming Brooklyn Synth Expo at Main Drag Music to demonstrate his new ‪‎LinnStrument‬, a revolutionary replacement for the MIDI keyboard that captures 3 dimensions of finger movement, thereby providing a level of subtle musical performance control equaling that of fine acoustic instruments.

As you can see from the introductory video below, the futuristic looking device is basically a huge tablet organized in “note pads.” It opens up new expressive options for keyboard players, allowing to trigger pre-programmed Midi messages in a very intuitive way. entirely through the movement and the sliding of fingers across its axis.

The LinnStrument can be played horizontally like a keyboard or strapped on your shoulders like a guitar – it even has a strumming mode!

Don’t miss Roger Linn’s live demonstration at our upcoming Brooklyn Synth Expo on Novamber 7-8, 2015.
