The Perfect LFO?
- I love this LFO setup (from the Jomox Airbase):
- No Midi clock sync
- Speed set by either a value or a global BPM value
- Synchronisation On/Off that determine whether the LFO will restart
after the instrument it modulates has been triggered or if it will
run independently of instrument triggers (Midi note-on)
Reasons why this is cool are (first 3 being the very cool ones):
1) No midi clock sync headaches!
2) Can get very cool swing into your LFOs. If your track is 135BMP
and you set the LFO to 136BPM then the first LFO pulse after the
note-on trigger will occur slightly early, pushing the track along..
3) Tighter midi response as you dont have to process midi clock
(obviously need to ensure you are not sending it to the Airbase as
it will still process the clock signal even if to just realise that
it is ignored).
4) If your track is changing tempo, you change the global BMP value
using CC messages
In summary: Far more power then its simple implementation should
