LXR-02 tutorial - Part 4: Patterns

video upload by Richard DeHove

"Part four of a getting started guide for the Erica Synths LXR-02 drum machine. This is with a beta version of firmware 1.2. This tutorial covers the fundamentals of patterns with a focus on the pattern generator. The generator is a Euclidean pattern generator but is so fast and versatile it's useful as a starter in just about any situation. The tutorial also looks at pattern and track lengths and clearing tracks.
This was also going to cover song mode but (and please test this for yourself) I believe there's a bug in song mode where the song plays backs patterns one-higher than the saved pattern number. So if your song says play back patterns 1, 2 and 3 it will actually play patterns 2, 3 and 4. As soon as this is fixed I'll do a video on song mode!
Note also in the pattern generator page that "mrp" is a morph control and will also be covered in a separate video.
