LXR-02 tutorial - Part 7: Fun with LFOs

video upload by Richard DeHove

"Part seven of a getting started guide for the Erica Synths LXR-02 drum machine. This is with firmware 1.2. This tutorial looks at applying multiple synchronized LFOs to a sound. You'd think a 17-minute tutorial could cover a big chunk of this topic, but instead it really only covers the more obvious options of modulating the pitch, filter, resonance and decay. There are dozens of other targets that can produce some extremely interesting and unusual sounds. At least this will get you started. Be warned though, it's a deep tunnel to explore! With six LFOs the LXR-02 can get very intricate very quickly.

As an aside: A non-synth friend who discovered me working on this video asked what it was about. When I tried to give a quick overview they thought it was hilarious. In the nicest way possible they dismissed it as 'incredibly niche'.

Some people just don't appreciate how much fun you can have with low frequency oscillators - but I know you understand.
