LFO sync to seconds?


(Artie Fufkin) #1

Is there a way to have an LFO sync to seconds instead of LPC?

One way is to set the tempo to 60 and the LPB to 1, or a variation of that, like multiplying those numbers and doing the math.

No I mean to sync independently of LPB, so that no matter what the LPB is, it keeps the same frequency.
Seems like the Formula device can do it using the init setting, but then the resolution still depends on LPB.

Here is the formula for you:

(60*freq)/(BPM*LPB)

With “freq” being the desired frequency value in Hz. You can define somthing like freq = 0.5 in the code section of the formula device to control it precisely.

Put into the formula device, let it control your LFO’s frequency.

When BPM or LPB are changed, the LFO should keep its speed in Hz, as the variables will be adjusted by the formula device online.

Edit: Oops first formula was wrong, was seconds per cycle, not cycles per second…

Damn, sometimes I should triple check what my mind manages to clutter together…first formula was wrong, I corrected it.
