I have a small question about using LFO with ‘random’ within the Modulation section of instrument editor and I’m not sure if this is a bug or a feature.
Essentially, I want to confirm if the following is true:
if I create a single modulation set that is applied to several (at least two) samples within a single instrument, and I create an LFO with random mode for (for example) pitch modulation (with frequency very low, i.e. 0.001Hz, but I don’t think that matters), whenever a note is played, each sample connected to that modulation set will get a different random value. In other words, if I use (for example) single-cycle oscilating (looped) waveforms, I am unable to maintain pitch relationships between each oscilator (set in sample properties for example), but they are sometimes more close together, sometimes further apart.
This somehow doesn’t make sense to me, because, if I use Sine mode in the LFO, all samples will be modulated in the same way (within the same modulation set). It would seem to me more logical, that if I’d want to have different random pitch relationships (for example) between each sample, i would create separate modulation set for each sample and create a LFO in random mode for each of them.
I hope I have described this situation accurately. At the bottom line (without knowing any internal constraints for such functionality - a bug or a feature?) I would rather see that random mode of the LFO within a single modulation set should apply the same random value to all samples connected to this modulation set and not a different random value to each sample.
I would like to know if this is desired behaviour and will it stay like this, or can it be changed?
In any case, thanks for amazing music making software!
