Erica Synths LXR-02 Drum Synthesizer Now Available To Pre-Order

Sonic Potions and Erica Synths have introduced the LXR-02 Digital Drum Synth, an updated version of Sonic Potions’ renowned DIY kit.


The LXR-02 is described as “a complex standalone drum synthesizer with a powerful integrated sequencer”. It features six voices: three multipurpose drum voices, a dedicated subtractive clap/snare voice, FM percussion voice, and a hi-hat voice.


Each voice is equipped with a variety of modulatable and tweakable parameters, including oscillator, amplitude envelope, frequency modulation, transient generator, filter, and variable waveform assignable LFO. This means it can create classic analog drum sounds, but has the flexibility to go much further.




  • Powerful drum synthesizer with integrated 64 step sequencer
  • 6 synth voices: three multipurpose drum voices, a dedicated subtractive clap/snare voice, FM percussion voice, and a hi-hat voice
  • 7 sequencer tracks: 1 per voice plus an additional track for open hi-hat
  • Per step parameter automation
  • Performance mode features manual rolls per voice, global sample rate reduction, and a special Morph feature for morphing between presets
  • Comprehensive project structure
  • 4 x 1/4″ outputs
  • Dedicated headphone output
  • MIDI I/O
  • USB
  • Analog Clock I/O




The sequencer is split into seven tracks—one for each voice, and an additional one to control the open hi-hat of the sixth voice.


Each track can be set to a different length, with a maximum length of 64 steps. This opens up the possibility for creating complex polymetric patterns.


The sequencer also allows for automation recording, with two parameter changes per step. The sequences programmed in all seven tracks can be stored as a Pattern, and up to 64 patterns can be saved as a Song, and furthermore 64 Songs can be hosted by a single Project.


Performance Mode:


The LXR-02 also features a dedicated ‘Performance Mode’. In this mode, parameters like track muting are easily accessible, without a ‘shift’ function involved. It also provides access to Manual Rolls, which can be simply triggered via the first seven sequencer buttons with adjustable rate, and even recorded into the pattern if the recording mode is active.


Global sample rate reduction provides another way to momentarily “inflict radical sonic destruction to a beat”.


Lastly, a ‘Morph’ function allows for morphing between the active and target presets (the latter can be any preset file on the SD card).


The Sonic Potions and Erica Synths LXR-02 Digital Drum Synth is available to pre-order via Perfect Circuit  for $589
