Lfo waveshapes and possibilities

Hi george

my particular things synths with more complex lfo shapes and especially
staircase and chromatic waveshapes as lfos which can be used as very interested
arpeggios when mapped to pitch and also make incredible shapes for panning .

I was wondering if its possible to expand on the lfo waveshapes at some stage to include others that allow more ' step ' like modulations , especially of pitch in
chromatic intervals which we find in very few synths like the Korg z1 and Novation Ks series and Rhodes Chroma but very few new synths.

A combination of these and an internal arp or sequencer opens up amazing possibilities for sequences within sequences and can quickly expand the palette of a synth .

Congratulations on an amazing synth design....

These are great ideas. Complex waveshapes for the LFO is something I hinted at in the Sonicstate video. There is no reason the LFO should not use any of the 16 static wavetables in the synth memory. It was not something considered at design time so we'll have to think of how to add it in with a sensible button combo.

There are no specific chromatic modes in the synth as it stands, later when we hopefully bring out an editor for DAW integration, we will have more options to add controls. Thanks for this suggestion
