The Linn LM-1 Drum Computer is a drum machine manufactured by Linn Electronics and released in 1980. It was the first drum machine to use samples of acoustic drums, and one of the first programmable drum machines. It became a staple of 1980s pop music, helping to establish drum machines as credible tools, and appears on records by artists including Human League, Gary Numan, Michael Jackson, and particularly Prince. The LM-1 was succeeded in 1982 by the LinnDrum.
