Linn Drum II?

My techno fiends and I have been anxiously awaiting the arrival of the Linn Drum II, an analogue drum synthesizer and sequencer from Dave Smith(Prophet) and Roger Linn(MPC). These two guys have been revolutionizing electronic instruments now for ages and plan to do that again with their new release. This machine started being rumored around the internet in 2008 with pictures of different designs but never a release date. Finally after a few years this idea has evolved into the Tempest being released by Dave Smith Instruments and later a Linn Drum II being release by Roger Linn’s company. The Tempest will be analogue and the Linn Drum II will be more towards the digital side. The Tempest will run about $2000 but will be well worth it. Everyone is already comparing it to a Machinedrum, but I think the analogue sounds of the Tempest will be far superior. So here is a video from Namm 2011 to inspire you.
