Got an idea the other day, and it's actually doing stuff.
When using Europa/Grain/any device really, we can create a create a "range slider" to use with the EDIT Y-POS function.
The LFO's and Envelopes have a max value of 50Hz, but you can go higher by using the mod matrix.

Draw a straight line on Env1 with 4 points, also set it to 'bipolar' (2 outer on 0, 2 inner on any value (still on the outer sides of the drawable area))
Now in the mod matrix set Env1 Rate to LFO1/2/3 or Env2/3/4 Rate, on +100 amount.
Use the targeted LFO/Env to modulate something else (shape/modifier1/2 on europa for example)

Now when we enable the "Edit Y-Pos", we can use this as an amount slider for that LFO's rate.

And video!

Can you show us this in action with a screencast using OBS etc? Sounds interesting.

Yes similary this works with frequency cut-off as well. I wasn't to happy with how low/high the spectral filter would go, so often I would have a "dummy envelope" just to push the Freq a littler higher or lower

Oh now I get what this is doing.

I was hoping it was opening up a real FM option for Europa

Changed the title, fits better I guess !

We can ofcourse then also use the scaler option for more precise tweaking btw! So keytracked, or maybe use low values and a little bit of noise :3
How would 50hz translate with 16x -100 on the mod matrix, that's gonna be weeks or what? :D

(Also added a video)
