AU­DI­OLOUNGE AL 9000

Ex­pe­ri­ence the Linn 9000 with­out the crashes or costly add-ons! Avail­able for both OS X and Win­dows in VST and AU for­mats, the 32/64-bit AL 9000 pro­vides 39 drum sounds splayed across as many vir­tual drum pads, each with slid­ers for level and pan. There’s a built-in re­verb, but the hi-hat de­cay slider is AWOL. www.au­di­olounge-pro.com

ARTURIA SPARK VDM

Arturia’s soft­ware and hard­ware hy­brid beat­boxes in­clude vir­tual recre­ations and sam­ples from a num­ber of clas­sic drum ma­chines, in­clud­ing those made by Linn. Specif­i­cally, their Spark VDL pro­vides a num­ber of sam­ples from the Linn 9000, adding such mod­ern niceties as re­verb and other ef­fects to help shape your beats. www.arturia.com

JUNN JM-1 DRUM COM­PUTER

Just one of many sam­ple-based LM-1 clones, this free­bie for 32-bit Win­dows hosts wraps a hand­ful of sam­ples from the Linn 9000’s pre­de­ces­sor into a fancy UI that of­fers vol­ume and pan con­trols for each of the on­board sounds. It’s not go­ing to give you the full ex­pe­ri­ence of work­ing with a Linn 9000, but it will give you a sim­i­larly 80s sound. www.vst4free.com
