Midi LFO Random is not very Random

Post by pechnatunk » Mon Dec 28, 2020 4:38 pm

Has anyone noticed that Random setting on the Max for Live LFO (I've been using it with the Midi version but imagine it's the same for both) is not very random at all.
At least every 1 in 6 changes it returns to the lower extreme.

To test - set the rate to 1 bar, and set the other knobs to wherever you like - set it to Rect, make a note of the upper and lower limits, then set the wave to Random - you will see that it hits/returns to it's lower value aq LOT more than it should.
