Imagine if the reset button was a slider, and there was a second bar in the custom lfo view, showing the start position… Would be much more easy to use than fiddling around with the reset command in the pattern…
You could easily set a offset in the automation…
- get rid of ugly reset pattern command
- being able to precisely estimate an offset playing of the lfo
- use automation view
- no more strange behaviour if lfo was in a doofer and reset automated then
- easily use preset waveforms with an offset!
Please add your own ideas regarding improvements of the lfo device.
What I find really helpful when dealing with custom LFOs is dblue’s trick for accessing the Reset button with a Key Tracker and then automate the Dest. Min slider. At least this technique seems to cover some of the aspects you mention in your first post, I think.
Yes, thanks. I know this. And IMHO it should be like this as default, no reset button, but offset/slider slider. No more ugly automation in pattern. Etc.
I also believe ffx’ suggestion is slightly better than how it currently works. The current implementation is efficient GUI wise, but what you gain in space is sometimes lost in friendliness and usability
In particular, splitting the reset button into reset+slider would also make it possible to use a free-running oscillator and trigger the reset anytime you want. Without setting up “heaps” of meta devices.
Nice refinement imo. With the usual drawback of changing something everyone has gotten used to.

THEM’S FIGHTIN’ WORDS, SIR!!
How dare you even suggest such a thing!
