I installed the Trigger IO expansion for the LXR drum machine

November 7, 2016  |  DIY, Drum machine

Here’s another little project I had been saving for a rainy (dark) day. Yesterday I brought out my soldering iron again and spend a bunch of hours putting together this little thing.
I can now use the Sonic Potions LXR drum machine to trigger up to seven simultaneous sounds on my analog gear. The sync in/out jacks allows me to either let the LXR send out a master clock or have it controlled by for example my Roland System-100 or the modular.

One more little project is finished: installing the trigger IO expansion for the Sonic Potions #LXR #drummachine #diy #drummachines #sonicpotions #sonicpotionslxr

Tomorrow is September 9 aka Roland 909 day

Roland TR-09

Looking around my studio I realize I’m probably a bit of a Roland fanboy. Or not, really. Over the years I’ve just naturally gravitated towards the sounds I like the best. It’s not so much about what company actually made the hardware.

Anyway, tomorrow is 909 day and Roland will officially present some new exciting products. We’ve already seen the leaked pictures of a Boutique version of the TR-909 drum machine and TB-303 bassline. Personally I’m hoping for a even smaller version of the TR-808. Let’s see what they have in store for us.
