Key Tracker Reset Hydra To LFO To Hydra

Using the key tracker to reset an LFO works great, but what if you want to reset many LFO’s/Devices at once? It is messy to have a ton of key trackers just to do this.

What if you want one key tracker to reset multiple LFO’s/Devices? And what if you wanted one of those reset LFOs to control many devices? This device chain does all that.

This is smart! I was dissapointed when I first started trying to do:
[key-tracker] → [hydra] → [multiple LFO resets]
but it was not working the same as:
[key-tracker] → [single LFO reset]
…if that makes any sense? Point being, this is a great solution!

Thanks for sharing!

Actually, this is kind of on topic for another question I have:
is there any way to get a “control signal” to “output” from a Doofer?
i.e. you can’t assign LFOs or Hydras that are contained in a doofer to any parameters outside of that doofer as far as I can tell. Is that a truly hard and fast rule, or is there some kind of work around?

no that is why i saved this an effects chain and not a doofer

glad you appreciate it!

yes it was a revelation when I realized that the random lfo could be used as a momentary hydra reset trigger :exploding_head:

honestly a lot of my renoise based sound design relies heavily on this technique for creating per-note fx modulation

I wish we could get control signals out of doofers. I just drop my fx into the LFO bank doofer I have saved as a preset. Works for me.

What I really wish for is internal fx chain routing within a doofer using sends, etc… that would REALLY open things up in terms of what we could accomplish with native dsp… Parallel compressors, parallel distortion units, multiband you-name-it… please consider this @taktik, it would make renoise so much more powerful
