Minor bug, the Beats resolution is inverted. Display 1/2 = 1/8th sync. Display 1/8 = 1/2 note sync.

Also, like in Subtractor, the hotspots for WaveType selection should be expanded to include clicking on the name, not just the LED. It's tedious as it is. And, like Subtractor, maybe a button to cycle thru waveforms in the LFO (clicking WAVE TYPE for example).

Update in 1.0.1. version _

Updated the main display:
• More accurate presentation of the modulation effect (since it’s bipolar)
• The “Custom Wave Type” columns expand from the vertical middle instead of from the bottom
• Depth is also presented more accurately, also expanding from the vertical middle
Enable Modulation fix:
• When modulation is OFF, the LFO leaves the target intact instead of at the last state the LFO was in (i.e.
. when the modulation is OFF, nothing is sent out of the device).
Added the property “Curve Color Intensity”, now users can adjust the color of the body of the curve

Can anyone compare this to other LFO tools (could be REs or VSTs) like Lfotool by Xfer, Volume Shaper, Devious Duck? Just curious for sidechaining options. I’m mainly interested in the sound and vibe they produce.

I mean... download the trial RE and see what it does. If you like it, then you'll know if it's for you. :thumbup: :clap:

This was so promising when I stumbled upon it, but is so weird and simply unfinished:
  • time mode should be in Hz, instead of 0-100
  • somehow "1/16" beat division equals to 1 bar and "1 bar" is 1/16 :shock:
  • it should be possible to NOT require MIDI to trigger it, so it should either run freely or be synced to sequencer (like e.g. Synchronus)
  • there's 10 CV outs on the back, but they all output the same thing - initially, I though that you can set separate modulation shapes for all of the 1-12 buttons and each would have a separate output, but that's not at all how it works
  • no idea what "Mods:None" in the top-right does or what it's for
  • the GUI is way to dark - you can barely read the red text on black screens, I only noticed the phase slider in 3rd or 4th use and I was confused why the drop-down button next to "Phase position" wasn't doing nothing
  • "Curve color intensity" does nothing

Good comments! You should send these to the developer:

No problem. I was just a messenger when it first got released and showed up in the shop. :-)

+1 I bought this and the filter together. Then I came back and bought Collider. My only bad move was that I did not buy the bundle.
