Extremely! slow lfo

Got a great idea but maybe don't have the time or ability to realize it yourself? Don't let it go to waste.

Extremely! slow lfo

Post by TB303 » Sat Feb 22, 2014 1:24 pm

I'm looking for a way to getting a extremely slow lfo for the modular.

I'm talking about 30 to 60 minute per cycle or even more if possible. :shock:
Still wondering how to achief this.(maybe i overlooked some possibilities)

Regards,
Mike

If you can't find the module you seek, you can use Silentway Suites LFO, and in doing so also modulate Scopes modules with audio getting insanely diverse LFOs and Portamentos.
Also means less modules are needed, so one can really get creative with multi filter and multi oscillator patches. :arrow:

1 is obviously the lowest integer value above 0. When applied to an LFO frequency input this gives 0.000011Hz. 1/f = time in seconds so unless I'm mistaken that would take 1515.151516 minutes (or 1.052189 days) at 48kHz samplerate to complete a cycle.

You probably won't notice it at this rate but give it time :D

...or to save time, here's a demo patch of an LFO with roughly 30min cycle time.

Why did i never tried that before? ,that must be the simplest answer you can wish for. :mrgreen:
( the 0,01 Hertz in the most LFO module displays i guess )

Awesome.
Much slower than the CWMod SLoooow single sine wave LFO too.
I need this to help emulate a stopped sound a Leslie has when you hit the brake.
Problem with most Rotary effects is they sound terrible stopped, totally unlike a real Leslie cabinet, but using
super slow LFO the sound doesn't become "perfect" and has just enough motion to make it indistinguishable from a stopped Rotary....
