Since 1982, Bruce and Ben Forat have provided the entertainment community with first-class music electronics
while working at Linn.
Then in 1986 Forat Electronics Corporation was born
after purchasing Linn's remaining assets and have since been providing
sounds, service, parts, and modifications for all Linn Electronics products. They revamped the original line including the LinnDrum, LM-1, and LinnSequencer and introduced the world to the F-9000. The F-9000 is the first fully-functional sampling/sequencing/MIDI work station. This machine along with Bruce and Benny's personal attention to detail made musical history for such artists as Def Leppard,
Chicago, Rod Stewart, and Madonna. Further ground-breaking advancements in
sampler technology came from Forat in 1987, the
Forat F-16 was introduced to the musical world. The first 16 bit digital
sampler tailored towards drums with Midi capabilities, dynamic response to
incoming signals and to this day still the fastest audio-triggering digital
sampler on the market. This machine was instrumental in the rising
popularity of such producers as Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, L.A. and Babyface.
There are over 8000 Forat Electronics F-9000s and F-16s in use today around the world. These guys have literally been making hits since 1982. That's over
21 years of consistent service on the behalf of their many clients all over the globe.
In 1996, Forat Music was formed. Having made musical history for others by providing sounds and showing them how to use Forat products, Bruce and Ben decided to become Forat users as well. Forat Music is headed for the world music scene at full speed. They have just finished construction of their state-of-the-art recording facility in Studio City, California, and they are just completing the first project to be released on Forat Records.
