Is there any way to make fine adjustments to the LFO rate (or really, any FX parameter)? Specifically, I’d like to set the LFO rate to a large odd number of bars (greater than 3), like 5, 7, 17 bars, etc. When I turn the knob for the rate setting, it goes from 3 to 4, then 6, 8, 12, 16, 32, 64. I’d like to have a long LFO period whose cycles don’t line up with a 4, 8, or 16 bar loop.
Any way to achieve this with Pyramid (PyraOS 3.0)?
Try giving the LFO a track of its own (leave your notes where they are) and make that track say, 5 steps long per bar. Then set the LFO rate accordingly. So a 5 step bar at a 4 bar LFO rate would give you an LFO cycle over 20 steps, which would be be a 5 bar LFO rate against your other tracks (assuming they are 4/4).
Ah, brilliant suggestion @JimBrackpool! That works perfectly. I’m not yet used to thinking about putting FX or CC automation on a completely separate track, but that really opens up some interesting possibilities. Now that the seed has been planted in my brain, I see I could also use a separate track for CC automation with the same time signature, make it however many bars long I want, and record or draw the waveform I want.
Thanks for the suggestion.
