Patiently waiting to see if any European distributors will get any of this series in stock. If not might be cheaper to take a trip to NY and pick them up from ctrlmod.

There was a simple demo on FB, linked to on the LZX site in the news section. It seems to have scrolled off now, tho. Oh, yes - here it is.

From Lars on FB: " No European orders yet to our distributor, but we expect Raw Voltage and/or London Modular will make an order soon. I would e-mail them to make sure to let them know you want them to stock these releases! There have been a lot of new releases this month in Euro world, so I think everyone is scrambling."

while on the subject of Navigator, does anyone have any cool workflow techniques with this guy, I have used it a ton for vector stuff with the scopes and its amazing for that but I find myself struggling to make anything thats not cheesy with pattern synthesis stuff... too many mirrors for my taste, or the repetitive motion seems to get a little "90s website animation" kind of vibe... I am probably using it like a idiot for that application...

any patch inspiration would be amazing :help:

It works great with feedback. Try using it to modulate an oscillator, then feed one of the outputs back into the Navigator. Last night I was doing some keying in VC and sending the output back in with the TBC, then using that to mod the Nav. Somehow I managed to feedback going both left and right. It was super gnarly.

Or use it to process modulation signals only and not your main video signals. Flip the 'mirror' switches off too of just use one, and feed complex signals in to the X/Y positions...

Yeah, personally I use it mostly for proc'ing modulation signals, hardly ever for straight video signals. Always great going into an osc. Nice for making more complex shapes, or good movement of said shapes.
