The drum machine pedalboard Ep2: Monomyth and Acidbox III

video upload by Richard DeHove

"The second episode in the series which explores different pedal and routing combinations with the LXR-02 drum machine. This time it's Joyo's Darkglass Microtubes X-Ultra clone 'Monomyth' and the Erica Synths Acidbox III. Taking just a stereo pair out, the left side goes into the Monomyth, which is a bass pre-amp with EQ; and the right side goes into the Acidbox and then to the Nemesis stereo delay.

The kits on the LXR-02 have been slightly tweaked in the panning to push the more kick-like sounds to the Monomyth. They've also been programmed with the effects on, so can sound a bit odd when dry.

Four demo tracks here which mainly speak for themselves although I should mention the last demo 'Transient' is interesting in headphones where you can pick out the big effect the Acidbox has on the transients. In hindsight it may have been better not to twiddle the knobs on that one so much, but it's hard to resist that gigantic filter knob :D

The only thing added in the DAW was a brickwall limiter to catch some of the peaks, otherwise everything is as you see it.
