Modulator LFO

The table below lists the properties of the Low-Frequency Oscillator (LFO) modulator. For more information on working with LFO modulators, refer to Working with LFOs.

Interface Element



The name of the modulator ShareSet.

Shared by

A list of objects that currently subscribe to the selected ShareSet.

Opens a search field where standard alphanumeric entries filter out unmatching elements from the view. Learn more in Using Tables.

Interface Element



The amplitude variation of the oscillator. Maximum amplitude is 1.0.

Default value: 100
Range: 0 to 100
Units: %


The number of cycles per second.

Default value: 1
Range: 0 to 20000
Units: Hz


The shape of the modulator, from among the following options:

  • Sine
  • Triangle
  • Square
  • Saw up
  • Saw down
  • Random: Selecting Random will randomly apply a level each time the modulator runs.

Default value: Sine


Low-pass filter over the waveform to smooth hard edges.

Default value: 0
Range: 0 to 100
Units: %


The width of the pulse wave; only applies to the Square waveform.

Default value: 50
Range: 0 to 100
Units: %


The time it takes for the oscillator to reach full amplitude.

Default value: 0
Range: 0 to 100000
Units: s

Initial Phase Offset

The initial phase of the oscillator waveform.

Default value: 0
Range: -180 to 180
Units: °


Define how LFO instances are created:

  • Voice: An instance of LFO is created for every sound/object playback.
  • Note/Event: An instance of LFO is created for every playing instance, or note when used in MIDI context.
  • Game Object: An instance of LFO is created for each game object.
  • Global: A single LFO is created for the whole project.

Default value: Note/Event

[Note] Note

The RTPC cursors for LFO and Envelope modulators do not tell you their specific values at any point in time since they are determined by the modulator's internal properties.
