Midi LFO?

Post by db2 » Fri Aug 15, 2008 5:41 pm

I'm really wondering why this feature isn't a part of Live, it seems really obvious to me.

There should be a master LFO synced to the host tempo for assigning to any parameter. So many fun things you could do both live and in the studio. Anybody else surprised this isn't a feature in Live?

Anybody else have suggestions? I've seen a couple max patches that route through the IAC bus but this introduces some delay and the LFO is no longer sync'd tightly.

this is on the feature request line since a long time....

i've achieved some good results using Reaktor as stanalone app. and route
the Lfo'ed midi cc into Live via MidiYoke (Soundflower if on a mac).

Mr. Macrostructure did a good one some time ago --> http://www.macrostructure.net/midilfo.htm

I put in a feature request through the support page about once every four months..
I told them that i would stop doing it if they sent me a hoodie...
They wrote me a very nice reply telling me it is a popular request and is on one of the to-do lists, and sent me some stickers to placate my lust for a hoodie...

I'm not so cheap...

I'll write them again this week end...

Thanks for the recommend. Unfortunately it looks like pc only, I should've mentioned I'm on a mac. Thanks again though! Let's home they implement this small but extraordinarily useful feature!

I have one partially hacked out in XCode that I've been meaning to get back to for a while. It would be so ridiculously useful!

Can you code Cocoa? Want to hack it together with me?
