Request: Random LFOs

0 votes

I've run in to a few scenarios where I could benefit from a RTPC being controlled by an LFO that is random wave, as opposed to just a cyclical sine, triangle, square, etc.

I feel like I've seen waves like this as options in other applications - usually something like a 'rounded' random oscillator to prevent sharp changes, random 'square' type of oscillator, and a full on random 'noise'-like oscillator.


Right now my work around is to have a few sine LFOs with some randomness on the parameters, but a proper random LFO would work much better!

Take a look at the Waveform dropdown in the LFO general settings, there is a Random waveform. It selects a random value per cycle. You can even use the smoothing property with it.

Ah!  I see they added this feature in to the 2017 version... Should have looked at that first. >.<
