Grammy Award-winner delivers lecture to music class

October 28, 2011

Grammy Award-winner Roger Linn recently delivered the lecture, “The Coming Revolution of New High Tech Musical Instruments,” to a group of music students at Loyola University New Orleans.

Linn, an industrial designer of electronic drum machines and guitar effects pedals, is famous for revolutionizing the world of electronic musical instruments by designing the world's first drum machine to use digital samples. His products became industry standards in music production during the 1980s and 1990s.

Earlier this year, Linn was awarded a Grammy Award for Lifetime Technical Achievement, recognizing his many contributions to the music recording industry. In addition, he is an accomplished guitarist, producer and songwriter, having co-written hits for Eric Clapton and Mary Chapin Carpenter.
