How to make your music bounce to the beat.

 

Using a LFO + Hydra + Gainer.

 

If you can not see the DSP list, make sure you have opened the bottom pane and the DSP lanes at the left bottom..

set the LFO LPC (Lines Per Cycle of the LFO) equal to your tempo in Lines Per Beat, here: 8

Put a LFO reset command in the pattern by Right Clicking the LFO Reset button.

after navigating your pattern cursor to the start of the pattern in the track.

Select the effect lane block and Copy with Ctrl+C, sized equal to your LPB (8 lines here)

Nice tutorial!

Correction: you wrote "...equal to your tempo in Lines Per Bar, here: 8",
but that should read *Lines Per Beat*.
