  • LFOS, slot types, requests

    Loving the new beta 1.10. EDITED 4/14.

    SHORTER Term requests

    LFO requests.
    1. I liked to see them all available as Positive or Bipolar--consider making this a separate option and not part of the shape selection.
    2. Having the shape be adjustable. Specifically, for the Sine wave, the slope of curvature can be adjusted, potentially CV-able,. Alternatively, just add more shapes and include a Wide Sine and a Lean Sine.

    Would like to see a new gate slot type called RESET. So those of that are using the Toolbox as the master, it can output a reset.

    I would love to see additional stand alone midi tracks. If we could get 4 additional track that were MIDI only, that would be awesome. That way you have 16 outputs plus 4 midi tracks. Has to work with the screen/GUI.

    Ability to turn Midi output port to OFF on the gate/seq tracks.

    +1 on the song mode requests.


    LONGER term, nice-to-have suggestions on slot types,
    1. Kurzweil VAST style functions/FUNs. With internal or external inputs. Not sure if these are too math-intense for the processor: refresh rate is important.
    2. Dual-Slot X-Y CV outputs that would take up 2 LFO slots. I'm looking for cv sources where the X and Y have a math relationship. Bouncing Ball, Lissajous Curves etc..
    3. MIDI transport control. This would be a sequencer list of MIDI transport commands Play/Pause/Stop/Rewind (or PlayfromBeginning) and Midi Program Change. These would output on a MIDI output with MIDI Clock and allow you to take sequential control of, for my use case example, a drum machine that has a pattern only sequencer. You would be able to start the drum machine run for 4 beats, pause it for 4 beats, then continue to play it for 4 beats, then have it rewind and play back from the beginning for 4 beats, etc..Also if the MIDI clock rate can be 1/4, 1/2, normal, 2X, 4X speed, that would add...
    4. For LFOs: . Add a comparator function to the LFO so that when it goes above a threshold, you can track an event LFO_Comp1=ON. This can then be used to conditional trigger things in the sequencer (like ratcheting or probability if those get added) as an internal mod source.

    Maybe a Turing Machine style slot type too? Or some other form of random generator?

      Tverse,

      Thank you for the many great ideas. We will keep them in mind.

        +1 on this. I've been recording my Modbox and Maths into CVREC for funkier LFO shapes. A triangle skew (saw<->tri<->ramp)and pulse with variable width would be huge, especially if both were targets of the mod matrix.

        Couldn't this be done with a dedicated gate seq?

        This would be useful as an "end of rise" and "end of cycle" trigger.
