Linn 9000“This stunning Linn / F9000 is one of the finest drum machines ever made. This unit has been routinely serviced by Bruce Forat over the years and just got back from his shop. Recent updates: New battery, new disc drive, pad maintenance. It has the most recent software upgrade. When it boots up it says ‘Forat 9000 OS 7.09.’ You really get best of both worlds in this unit, the classic vintage Linn 9000 looks with Forat 9000 features. Cosmetically the unit has a few scrapes and blemishes but this is purely cosmetic. Keep in mind, it’s a 30 year old piece of equipment. Comes with both Forat 9000 and Linn 9000 manuals. Take a quick look and see how much F9000’s are selling for, one recently went for $3,500. Not only is it a stunning piece of studio equipment, it’s also a great investment.” Link

Linn 9000 @ 11 February 2014, Comments Off on Linn 9000

“My beautiful one-owner Linn 9000 (vintage 1985) is looking for a good home.
As you can see in the photos, it is in excellent condition.

This Linn was used on a number of dance hits back in the mid-80’s to early 90’s
including Millie Scott’s “Prisoner of Love”, “”Ev’ry Little Bit” and “Automatic” among others.

It powers up reliably and currently has Version 6.91 software –
this can easily be upgraded by Forat. It has been lovingly treated,
used ONLY in smoke-free studios, and not bounced around on the road.

Unlike most that are listed on eBay, THIS Linn 9000 has been EXTENSIVELY expanded by Forat Electronics, and has had the following options added:

– SMPTE READER CARD – Forat charges $400 to add this to an existing L9000 – This card will allow you to read (and lock to) SMPTE time code at all four SMPTE rates (24, 25, 30, and 30 drop frame), and also will read MIDI Clock and Song Pointer.

– 18-PAD SAMPLING MOD – Forat charges $800 to add this to an existing L9000. This will allow you to load custom sounds on all 18 Pads. You will also be able to adjust the filter amount on tom and conga pads. The sounds that are loaded into the 18-Pad Sampling are not erased when you clear the 9000. This option comes with 336k of memory just for sounds. The filter pots are in the vents above the original LCD display window.

NOTE! This L 9000 does NOT have the 7.09 software required to truncate or reverse samples.
Some of these functions MAY be available in Version 6.91 – please check with Forat Electronics. (Not sure if this machine has the 64K extended sample memory, but I do not believe so).

– Floppy Disk Sound Library – I will throw in a large sound library with this purchase.
You will get 100 disc total – 55 pre-formatted 3.5 in floppy discs with Forat Library Sounds, and 45 unused pre-formatted discs to use to store or transfer sounds from other sources.
Forat charges $250 for their 100-disc Library.. I have 55 of the best of their discs…

As you can see from the photos, the unit is in great shape, with very little (if any)
wear on the pads or scratches in the finish.

Operating System V6.91 software is from Forat and they can tell you what all features it includes. contact Forat DOT CO for all info about the Linn 9000.” Link

Linn 9000 @ 21 January 2014, Comments Off on Linn 9000

” Here it is! The consummate drum machine and sequencing workstation of the 1980s! The Linn 9000 was used to create literally hundreds of hit records in the 1980s. It has 18 drum pads and sounds which to me feel better than any of the other drum machines I have used – and that’s a lot of them! It also has a disk drive for saving your sequences and loading new drum sounds. On the front panel there are two dedicated sliders for each pad – one to control the pan in the stereo field and the other to control volume and tuning of each drum.

One key feature of the Linn 9000 was that it was designed to be the centerpiece of a MIDI studio. And thus it has deep recording and editing facilities for external MIDI gear. Some of the biggest songs of the 80s were written and controlled by machines like this – the biggest one I can think of is Dead or Alive’s “You Spin Me Round (Like a Record)”. Once you hear these sounds though you’ll instantly recognize the machine from lots of other big hits!

Other cool features of the 9000:

– Each drum sound has its own dedicated 1/4″ jack on the back
– You can trigger drum sounds using 6 programmable external triggers
– The Linn can trigger other device using MIDI or two programmable trigger outputs
– The hi hat has a continuous slider instead of “open” and “closed” modes. That way you can make really expressive hi hat patterns!
– This was the first drum machine to my knowledge to have “note repeat” – hold down the repeat button and hit some pads

This particular 9000 has just come back from servicing at Forat and has a clean bill of health. It has a brand new power supply and floppy disk drive to keep the unit running strong for another 20-30 years. There is some minor cosmetic wear around the edges of the wooden case, which you can see in the pictures. This unit has OS V6.42. You can still buy upgrades for them, too! You can add SMPTE synchronization, more memory, a card that lets you sample sounds yourself, etc. Still a killer machine!” Link

“Linn 9000 Drum Machine/Sequencer. All the great 80’s sounds are packed into this box. I’ve used it for lots of recordings but I don’t have the room for it anymore. I was told when I brought it years ago that the “clap” didn’t work. Well, it worked for me. It only went out a couple times but nothing that I was too concerned about. 2 of the tips for the instrument mixer are missing but it’s no big deal. I just never replaced them. I was thinking of sending it to Bruce Forat for a “go through” but things never got serious enough for me to do that. I replaced the power supply and it doesn’t have much time on it at all. All instruments are tunable and the mixer on the front is great for balancing the volumes. I had great fun with this unit and even though it’s a vintage piece of gear, I have to let it go. Anyway, my loss is your gain so,

Happy Bidding!” Link

Linn 9000 @ 20 August 2013, Comments Off on Linn 9000

“Here it is! The classic drum machine and sequencer combo that Roger Linn created. This is the precursor machine to all the famous workstation style rhythm centers like the MPC-60, MPC-3000, SP-1200, and so on. The number of fantastic hit records recorded using this guy as the brain is too numerous to list. Some of the most famous might be “You Spin Me Round (Like a Record)” by Dead or Alive or anything recorded by Stock Aitken & Waterman (SAW) in the 1980s.

This particular Linn 9000 has an updated display that is quite visible. It has one of the latest OS versions from Linn, 5.17, and it also has the later power supply which has a cooling fan apparatus to keep the unit from overheating.

It’s in good physical condition. The only issues I know of are the disk drive doesn’t seem to be working, and the hihat pad used to not work so well. However, I just tried it out and didn’t notice any problems. Given an item of this age, I can only offer it as-is, but it’s working just fine right now except for the disk drive.

The good news is you can still get FULL SERVICE for Linn 9000s through Forat Electronics. If you’re into that 80s sound, this is the drum machine for you no holds barred.” Link

Linn 9000 @ 18 December 2012, Comments Off on Linn 9000

“This one is packed with lot’s of amazing features.
It has the FORAT 6.62 OS which allows this machine to load samples into memory and FIXES ALL THE BUGS
normally associated with the Linn 9000. It’s been furnished with brand new batteries and all of the pads work
completely. They are quick to trigger and feel incredible. This is what an MPC should feel like. This unit has the trigger inputs and also the SMPTE card but it does NOT have the sampling A/D card HOWEVER you can load samples via
floppy or burn EEPROMS. Contact bruce Forat and he can make you a custom Linn LM 1 set.

The kick drum is also not the standard Linn 9000 kick but is instead Kick 7 which is the superior kick
that was put in after the machine had been on the market and people complained about the lackluster
factory kick.

Also, because this is the Forat OS, the sequencer is GREATLY expanded and is basically what the MPC
sequencer should have been with better timing and FEEL than anything else out there.
The sequencer includes comprehensive sequencing over 16 channels, step edit mode or live record, and a
comprehensive song mode. MIDI SEQUENCES CAN BE DIFFERENT LENGTHS THAN DRUM SEQUENCES!
What this means is that you could come up with a drum groove and play a melodic arrangement that is of a different
bar count than your drums!” Link

” this is one of 2 linn 9000s we have on ebay at the moment. we bought this linn 9000 broken a long time ago and intended to fix it, but tech time is limited and we need to focus our repair efforts on our huge inventory of vintage analog synths, so we are offering it for sale broken. it is being sold strictly as is, for parts or repair. though we have had nearly a 100% success record reviving vintage electronic musical instruments like this, other tech’s skills vary and we therefore must make it clear that there are no guarantees. here are some basic initial notes we took on it several years back when we first acquired it, though these probably wont be too helpful: “missing 1 pad, missing 1 button, missing some knob caps, batteries leaked badly and acid damage has spread significantly beyond the batteries themselves, unit not functional so unable to assess further at this time. ” this unit may be a good choice for someone skilled at electronic repair or someone whos willing to invest in restoring this instrument to its original state.” Link

” You don’t see these very often! This is the Linn 9000, packed with the high-quality sounds from the classic Linn drums but expanded to include a sequencer and some limited sampling capability. Only about 1000 were made, but they quickly were snatched up as THE drum machine of the 80s. Roger Linn took the concept of the Linn 9000 and it eventually was repackaged as the Akai MPC-60.

This particular 9000 comes in good shape and with a sturdy flight case. There were a few slightly different variations on the 9000. This one has the floppy drive in the front. It works well and you are able to load new samples into the 9000 via floppies. As you can see, the backlight on the display is working. The sounds out of this are great. Each one can be mixed, panned and even tuned live. Plus, the 9000 has the great feature of variable high-hat decay. I’m including a printout of the manual (actually very difficult to find) along with a utility program for transferring wave files to the floppy format used by the 9000. Overall, a great package.

The 9000 is built like a tank and it weighs like one! Together with the flight case, it’s going to be pretty hefty to ship.” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.

Just check it out online if you’re not familiar with it, as it’s the predecessor to the Akai MPC series and famous for its sound and feel.

This one was in storage for several years, and although it does power on, it doesn’t show anything in the display and is locked up functionally (no functions working when you press buttons, etc). They can be completely refurbished by Forat in CA, but we’re not getting into all that. The places that look like scuffs are actually foam residue from the Anvil case it was in. Selling it as-is for a very cheap price!

See the pictures below for the cards installed. It comes as pictured.

Again, these are Very Rare machines, and they sell for a LOT of money when fixed up. We’re selling it very cheap as-is, no returns, so you can have repairs done and be into a killer machine for a lot less than these commonly sell for!” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.

“Components included

Hardware: Linn 9000, power cord, remote, case

Soft- and Firmware: software v7.02 + sample card + 108k sample time + 43000 notes sequencing memory (these upgrades are offered today at 600 USD)

Testing and functional notes

This item sucessfully powers on and sound is generated when the velocity sensitive pads are hit. We are unable to test all functionality due to our lack of knowledge and therefore are selling this item without a guarantee. However, when I called Forat – the expert when it comes to the Linn 9000 (www.forat.com) – he took me through some menus to get more details on the installed hard- and firmware and everything seemed to be fully functional. The only thing that might be broken is the remote, but that might also be a setting. But all functions on the remote can be found on the Linn 9000 as well.

Cosmetic notes

The foam inside the case degraded over time and looks like it might start breaking into pieces, it’s also a little sticky. The Linn 9000 will be shipped inside its case but will be wrapped in plastic to avoid contact with the sticky foam. Overall the module is in good cosmetic condition with scuffs and scratches associated with normal use.” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.

– installing a new Nicad backup battery
– enlarge the sequencer capacity to 43,000 notes

– installing the latest 7.09. software. Some of the many features are as follow:

On screen editing features such as Event and Global edit (note, velocity, duration, tuning, hi hat decay and erase), two types of punch (manual or programmable), recording all controllers such as MIDI volume etc., event chase, MIDI drum note assignment, copy individual tracks or drums, merge and replace, Time shift of notes and drum events, re-timing correction of individual drums or tracks after recording, 156 steps of drum tuning recordable during the sequence, MIDI System Exclusive recording for keyboard sounds, sample editing (truncate, reverse and fade), drum solo and mute, better and faster erase and many more.

Besides all these incredible features, the Linn9000 has an installed sampleboard (A/D converter) to load and record samples into the Linn9000. In this way you can load the recorded samples you want to use for your music project. Also 2 extra trigger input cards are installed!! So there are 12 trigger inputs you can use
