LFO Offset

LFO Offset
« on: August 16, 2022, 08:45:04 AM »
Hey everyone,
 Searched the manual and my brain high and low and could not figure this one out....

If I have my LFO synced to clock is there anyway to offset the LFO waveform so it is still synced but offset of the wave has changed....... so I can shift the modulation "off the grid" but still on the clock?

Thanks in advance

Well, not very straight-forward, but itís possible... it may drift out of phase eventually, depending on how well the sync source and the Rev2ís clocks match.

Youíll have to trigger the voices you want running with LFO key sync ON, synced to the source. Then you turn the LFO key sync OFF, with the source still running... so that the voices LFOs arenít actually synced, but free-running at whatever BPM theyíre clock-synced to.

If you want all voices to behave like one global LFO, turn unison ON and enable all unison voices, 8 or 16, hit a key, and then turn unison off again. If not, youíll have to trigger the voices separately with your DAW or whatever, an arpeggiator or sequencer with the phase offsets you want. 8ths, 16ths, or why not a rhythmical pattern...? You can get some REALLY cool results this way... but you canít stop the clock source from running, if itís an external arpeggiator for instance, always keep it running...

Possible to do consequetively (is that word even english?  :o ) with each LFO separately too, so EVERY voice has each of their 4 LFOs set to different phases, free-running but still in sync... Itís quite tedious to set up, but as I said it makes for some REALLY cool results. Especially when using the onboard gated sequencers set to other, different rhythmical and melodical patterns. Itís ĒmagicalĒ. :)

I think the word you were looking for is: consecutively.
