There are a few Arduino-based DIY drum machine projects. Try a google search.

I did, but I wanted to know if anyone here had anything specific that they had seen/heard/built

My TR505 died and it looks like a lot of the capacitors leaked and bled allover the PCB, I was thinking about trying to repair it, but I think Ill sell it to someone who wants to fix it and circuit bend it, and then make myself something.

Sonic Potions is on my watch list. DIY is a beautiful way to go and those are impressive sounds

BUMP BUMP PEOPLE NEED TO HEAR THIS BUMP.

Here's a video of the Sonic Potions drum machine. Apparently now called the LXR. Sounding HUGE on my setup!



This plus Volca beats? Hell yes.

Edit: And another video, this with an Evolver providing some nice tekk stabs, and the Bass Station some aciiieeeedddd.



Another edit just in case: No, the LXR is not analog. Wait for the Volca Beats for that or look elsewhere. This is 6 drum engines employing VA + FM, and it's already sounding huge without the need for VCOs.

Any idea on the prices of that Sonic Potions LXR?
Seems pretty cool, but the level of interest depends on how much it costs too...

Julien has previously suggested something in the region of [edited], but this is off the top of my head and may be slightly off.

Currently the LXR is in "beta PCB" stage, there are many small issues (nothing major) that could do with being improved with updated PCBs, so for the moment kits are not available.

I'm chomping at the bit for one of these, it seems to have such powerful voice architectures that it's capable of doing quite similar things to the Monomachine in some ways. But at a far more agreeable price!

Edit: As Swahananda states below, it's not going to be €350!

"about 280,- €" is what he gave on his site and I think he dropped 10 euro for the pioneers (which is full)

Definitely will keep an eye out for that Sonic Potions project, hope there will be pre-build sets available too, since I have zero experience with soldering etc.


New update on the case, it looks great!
