This is a bit tricky to explain, but here goes. I’m trying to avoid drawing lots of CC events to create a slow modulation – an LFO is designed to do just that. And I’m 99% there, but the CC parameter that I’m modulating pops at the beginning. You can listen to a test on SoundCloud.
Use an LFO to perform a CC sweep from 0 to 127 e.g. a volume fade in.
- Enter Step mode.
- Set a CC message value of 63 on step 1. This becomes the mid point of the LFO modulation. I hear you think “why not set this to 0?”. Valid question. Read on…
- Add some notes to the track – something to listen to.
- Add an LFO. Waveform: Sine, Phase 90º, Range -64. I also chose Rate 1 and CC 7 for Volume.
You now have a sweep that starts at 0 and goes to 127 and back. Sweet!
When starting playback from the first step the CC value ‘pops’ from 63 – the LFO mid-point, first step – to 0 briefly.
So, as mentioned in #2 above, why not set the starting CC value to 0? Because I can’t seem to then modulate the LFO only upwards, all the way to 127 and back. The LFO seems to use the start CC as the mid point of the modulation. When I try to start with 0 I can only get the result below, where part of the modulation gets cut off:
Or if I try to alter the phase and range it still gets cut off:
So… yeah. Does anyone have any light to shed perhaps? @squarpadmin if you read this, does it make sense?
