Where can you find pitch tracking for the LFO?

Angstrom, I feel like I'm still using training wheels compared to you. I lean on analog for the very reason that operator gets so deep, and I'm more slapped together, off the cuff, with my synthesis. (I actually think the interface for operator ought to have broken the norm of ableton's design manefest and been given a more futurist look.)

I'm thinking of releasing a pack of some of my operator presets. They are all in racks but I have hundreds of them ranging from basses to pads, leads, etc. And I have to say they are a bit better than the factory ones.

I don't see that green arrow in my Operator, did you do that with M4L? Can you do blue ones too?

Mine has that on all the time. I can't turn it off. It actually looks like this

Now I consider it - I should have noticed that LFO-key tracking control earlier really, considering the flashing arrow.

Angstrom, a collection of your operator presets would be a staple pack, IMO
I'm often randomizing values when I play, which is another reason why I don't open the lid on operator as much as it deserves. I haven't pinned down all the values that I can get away with

Sidechaining from a Drum Rack. I started seperating out all my drum parts, then routing them to an audio track for compression previously.

took a while, but i finally really understand what "select on launch" really means...like if you turn this on, any clip you trigger will auto select the track that clip is in...simple yes....but to understand HOW this is useful and when to turn this ON vs OFF, is a big revelation...

You can change the swing amount on the arpeggiator by adjusting the global amount in the groove pool!

I would hope for the same in synced delays.

That is not how delay works. There is no discrete set of slices or steps which can be offset, it is a continuous buffer in feedback so any offsets would be cumulative. The offsetting would be an audio timestretch and the delay would go increasingly out of time as the feedback increases the offsets. It would sound terrible. If you want to discuss what that means more another thread would be better.

No need. I find your explanation convincing.

You can open more than one folder by holding ctrl/apple key and clicking on the folder. 8O
No more collapsing of the other folder.
