Roger Linn is an industrial designer, mainly of electronic drum machines, and has recently branched out into guitar effects pedals. One of the products of Roger Linn Design is BoomChik, but changed to LinnDrum II in December 2007, and it was renamed the Tempest, and co-released by Roger Linn Designs and Dave Smith Instruments in 2011. In essence, the Tempest is an analogue/digital synth based on tweaked Evolver/Tetra/Prophet 08 voice chips, mated to a much-improved MPC-style sequencer, all built with live performance in mind. Tempest is an all-in-one beat creation machine, capable of synthesizing, sequencing, and performing complete beat-based music. Don’t let its old-school look fool you. There’s absolutely nothing outdated about this fantastic instrument.
According to several user reviews of Roger Linn Design Tempest Drum Machine, some users have praised it for the sequencer has classic Linn/MPC60/3000 feel; Extremely tweakable for studio and live performance; The hybrid sound engine sounds just right for drums and synth duties. Also, some users have complained it for the still quite a few issues to fix with the OS.
