I started using LFO on BPM instead of global groove. It seems ok, but is there any reason I shouldn't do this? I find it easier to understand than the global groove setting.

well, if it works do it.

 

maybe drawbacks could be...it be hard to define exact bpm of the result? I mean some people will like their dance tunes to have certain bpm/key to let them be blendable with others without pain.

 

or maybe that other prog you sync with renoise, or some vsti, might get seasick and puke all over your mixer.

That's the part I'm most curious about, actually. What does global groove look like from a plugin's POV anyway, and does global groove play nice with tempo-sync'ed plugin stuff where using the LFO in this way would not?
