One of my favorite synths is the Analog Four, and with the OS update 1.22 a while back, Elektron added new LFO synchronization modes and destinations and made this synth even more awesome. (If I only could take one of my synths to a deserted island, it would be the Analog Four.) Anyway, in short that means I’m now able to apply pitch tracked LFO FM behavior.
Here’s a way to start (not rules):
- Set triangle (as a substitute for sinus) waveform on an oscillator.
- Open up both filters.
- Set the LFO speed to any multiples of 16.
- Set the LFO multiplier to over 512 and synchronize it to the oscillator you’re working with.
- Let the LFO restart when a note is played on Trig Mode.
- Choose sinus as the LFO waveform.
- Set frequency or pitch modulation to the oscillator as LFO destination. (Also try different destinations later, like the filter frequency.)
- Set depth of the LFO modulation (or, if you’re using the first oscillator, let the second assignable envelope control this).
- If you use Depth A in the step above, then try to fade in or fade out the modulation.
Also, there’s a few videos on YouTube describing these methods, like this, which is a good walkthrough, even though it’s a bit unfocused and lengthy.
