Anything like the LFO designer on the Octatrack in HW or SW?
The LFO designer is a deceptively simple but stunningly useful tool. Ive seen some lemur templates that do something similar but nothing else really - hence the thread. I would love to use something like that external and separate to the OT (if I dont want to use it for a particular part, overseas without it, ect)
Oh your kidding? Xpander is my ultimate synth but I just cant bring myself to part (nor can I afford) the $3000-$4000 that they are currently going for. Well that makes me feel better as Im aslo getting an A4 as I think its the modern Xpander. This is great news! See I told you it was an amazing feature - and shows how far ahead of the curve Oberheim were.
MPC4000 step sequencer although the rate would be limited to 64th notes and its tied to the sequencer
Spectralis, P3/cyclone and the likes of analog step sequencers can have their step lines take the role of LFO´s with rates up to 192th notes (spectralis) but these do not trigger on note on basis but have independent clocks/resolution from the main sequence and irregular timing is also possible..
Yamaha A4000 and 5000 samplers can do this though.. design the LFO freely if I remember correctly ..
Don't forget the Silent Way LFO/Step LFO. While the Step LFO isn't as open ended, it's still really flexible. He's added some options to it recently, like the random shift register menu. Some kind of LFO designer is something that some people have lobbied Os for, though.
Combining some of the other SW plugs could definitely be interesting, like the follower, quantizer, function, etc.
I've forget about silent way (after obsessing about it I really got to lay off the cough medicine
Silent way is perfect! Doh - the step sequencer lfos are awesome and as I'm starting a little modular rack and buying pieces when I need them this is the perfect solution for where I'm heading with my music.
He's bringing out a dedicated din/sync box expander for the e-3 and e-4 which are all seeing hardware updates as we speak so when those land in about a months time I'll have actually bought silent way so I'd already know the answer to the question I was asking.
I feel real lucky to have found silent way as it solves my supync problems with ableton entirely and the creative stuff like the cool lfo stuff and he's developing more and more as time goes by and it's free with the modules.
In software I've played with lfo tool and I like it but it lacks the "power" for the want of a better word.
I'm just waiting on bitwig which has modulation at its very roots.
