Keeping Music Less Repetitive With Pitch LFO Tutorial

Sometimes your music (especially rhythmic parts) can become really stale and repetitive. By using pitch LFOs, you can add random variations in pitch to make them sound more realistic. I threw together a tutorial explaining this idea through the example of hand drums. Hope this helps!

I'm a big fan of using the S&H for something like this, or for variating the filter on Operator :P In those cases I can keep the retrigger button on.

I can definitely see though how the LFO can give a track a consistent underlying groove that keeps people's attention.

I'll have to apply this :D
