  • Weird, what firmware are you using? You might want to backup your SD card and try another version of the firmware.
  • Maybe the LXR is sending other mididata than sync. Did you adjust the midi filtering on the LXR as "R" only to see if it makes a difference?
  • Yes, I'm syncing the LXR with another hardware clock (MPC2000XL or TR8). I also trigger the sounds externally on some track and I don't notice any delay. I did not measure it but no clock drifting is noticeable on my setup. 10ms is not that much an…
  • I noticed some slight sync offset with ableton, but not with any hardware I'm using to sequence my LXR. Including my MPC2000, the TR-8 of a friend and other gear.
  • Check out the thread on brendan's custom firmware here for more info on the bugs: http://forum.sonic-potions.com/discussion/683/custom-firmware-new-features
    in bugs? Comment by Paulus March 24
  • There is a pattern next bug in the original firmware as well as in brendan's firmware. There may be one or two other bugs that i am not aware of. In fact, if you ask me about it, I would say that for my usage, there is no bug at all!

  • Maybe try another PSU? The same thing happened to me with a PSU that was working with another of my synth but not with the LXR
  • Then maybe you should be looking for something like the Vermona DRM-1? The only thing I can assure you is that I have been using the LXR for 4 years and I still have not finished exploring it! For me, 6 voices is quite enough, especially if you hav…
  • I do not know what makes you think 6 voices is limited. It is actually not that unusual, the Tempest has 6 voices, the analog Rhythm has 8. The synthesis engine is really great as the sequencing abilities. Personally, one LXR is really enough.
  • Hi, I'm using the LXR for my Live performance since a few years now. I have only started to use the pattern next function since one month as I am mostly writing all my patterns on the moment but the small bug is not critical to my opinion. The LXR…
  • @brendanclarke Thanks! that's helpful, I'll try to reverse engineer the code to build up a comprehension of it and see where it leads me!
  • Hey Brendan, it is great to read from you! I was wondering if it would be easy to add the possibility of issuing 12ppqn clock signal with the trigger out. I know it is not common tho. I'm considering trying to dive into the firmware (1st time eve…
  • I think that this problem was addressed on this forum, a quick search gave me this result: http://forum.sonic-potions.com/discussion/comment/8386/#Comment_8386 Seems like a grounding issue
  • You need a folder on the sd card named "samples" (on root) and no separates folders. Also, it is the total amount of all your samples that should not exceed 490kB!
  • Hello Slugz, you can find all the answers on sonic-potion's website. or on the wiki, a simple search on the page will get you most answers you are seeking. Here is how you can upload wav samples :http://wiki.sonic-potions.com/index.php/LXR_Owners_M…
  • Yes I believe the manual is not up to date, in my firmware (v-0.37 -b-c), this menu is merged in the global setting menu. Just scroll to the right and look for CKI (Trigger In PPQ), CO1 (Trigger out1 PPQ), CO2 (Trigger out2 ppq), MOD (Trigger gate m…
  • Update: I figured it out. The S-trig do not actually sends the constant 5V, it only outputs the "shorts" needed to drop an external 5-6V signal. I was actually testing this on the Bass drum trigger line of my Boss DR-110 and it appears that it is …
  • I believe this already exists as an option in the global settings of the LXR. It is under "mod" and here is what the TriggerIO manual says: Gate Length The 'mod' parameter controls the gate mode. Per default the trigger IO outputs just short 5V p…
  • Hi RomHtK, is the Trigger extension still for sale? I might be interested. Je suis Français au fait. Est ce que l'extension Trigger est toujours dispo? merci d'avance!
  • Hi tronica, The LXR has 7 tracks, each of these tracks are monophonic I believe. but if you use the 7 tracks as sequencer tracks, they'll all send midi notes and sequences, resulting in one polyphonic (7 notes) sequence. I'm note sure i'm being clea…
  • I have not tested it yet, especially because they are sample based and I fear that replacing my current samples by these will mess up my presets, but I will surely give it a try as soon as possible, maybe with a spare sd card dedicated to the recrea…
  • Sounds like a problem I stumbled upon. Are you using external clock?To me, it appeared when I had my LXR synced to another clock (computer) with a bit of latency. The rolls would be slightly delayed, probably because they would use the internal cloc…
  • Thanks a lot brendan. One thing that I noticed over the weeks is that it is not only the audio output assignment that does not get recalled after a bootup, but also the note assignment on each voice as well as the macros assignments.Just like with a…
  • Hey, I'm using a 4gb SDHC Sandisk card, works well for me.About the new firmware image with 0.37 here is the link, do not hesitate to bookmark the github!https://github.com/SonicPotions/LXR/tree/master/firmware image
  • @bonjour No problem. about my troubles, I don't really have it anymore, especially since I updated with the last firmware from brendan, that implements a fix from Julian for this trouble ( Firmware v0.37 - fixes the scrambled OLED after a AVR soft r…
  • And if you are using a Mac with your SD card, do not forget to eject your card using a software like Hidden cleaner that helps cleaning out the hidden files that Osx automaticaly puts there when you connect your SD card.Also, do not put two firmware…
  • Hello bonjour, First of all, as Brendan mentioned, his version of the firmware is a custom version and therefore should be tested at your own risk. Th LXR is also a DIY project and not a corporate project. As such, before buying the kit, you are awa…
  • I also noticed this bug just before a liveset. The output assignment is correctly written but not correctly assigned, everything goes to stereo. The only way is to go over all voices and re-assign the outputs. I also have noticed the same bug but wi…
  • Yes exactly that's it! I had some trouble picturing exactly the solution here, skipping the first trigger is exactly what I had in mind.Thank you very much! And thank you for you work, especially for reading through all the reports and odd requests …
  • Hey Brendan, Great work! Simultaneous rolls are fixed now. Amazing!The video is great too, really clear, I'm looking forward to watch the other ones. On the topic of rolls: I totally understand your point of view and I think that your new way of han…
