With many quality sample kit of the LM1 floating around the web, you can also use your favorite drum sampler and load the wav files into it.
You can use the old Linplug RM F VST or the good TX16Wx, or any sampler able to load wav files and trigger the sound with MIDI.
Can i get The Prince sound with it ?
How can i get the free linn drum VST for MAC ?
does it work in Logic X ?
Just a heads-up, Junn JM-1 unfortunately doesn’t allow you to tune your drums. This is especially detrimental if you’re trying to get a Prince/Minneapolis Funk sound.
Also, the DJVinn VST can tune everything EXCEPT cowbells and tambourine.
DJinnDrum for MAC.
