LZX Industries was born in 2008 out of the Synth DIY scene when Lars Larsen of Denton, Texas and Ed Leckie of Sydney, Australia began collaborating on the development of a modular video synthesizer.  At that time, analog video synthesizers were inaccessible to artists outside of a handful of studios and universities.  It is our continuing mission to design creative video instruments that (1) stay within the financial means of the artists who wish to use them, (2) honor and preserve the legacy of 20th century toolmakers, and (3) expand the boundaries of possibility.  The community of enthusiasts employing our tools in their personal meditations and artworks is what makes our mission possible. Since 2015, LZX Industries resides in a small home workshop in Portland, Oregon where we focus on the research and development of new instruments, user support, and community building.  Our synthesizer modules are manufactured and distributed to retailers locally by Darkplace Manufacturing & Distribution, just down the street. LZX is not an acronym. It is an alphabetical sequence we find aesthetically pleasing.
