    Linn Drum is indeed the quintessential 80's drum machine. Not that the Stranger Things OST uses a lot of drums, but if you want to create some typical 80's pop or cinematic music it's perfect.

    One thing to note is that a lot of big pop stars in the 80's (Prince, Peter Gabriel) used Linn Drum for kick and snare but they brought a drummer into the studio who would play just the hihat/cymbal parts.

    I own vLinn, which is a very authentic Linn Drum plugin that I can recommend. It's supposed to emulate all the features and quirks that Linn Drumm had. http://www.alyjameslab.com/alyjameslabvlinn.html

    There's also Linn Drum samples (and more 80's goodness) in Addictive Drums Reel Machines, (AD being my go-to plugin for drum kits). https://www.xlnaudio.com/products/adpak/reel_machines

    If we're covering '80s drum sounds, then let's add the Simmons SDSV to the list.

    Best,

    Geoff
