Subject description: Using difference between two LFO frequencies to generate sequential pitches
Reply with quote  Mark this post and the followings unread

This is a very crude sketch of the following idea:

One LFO generates a triangle wave that another LFO uses a sample&hold module to take snapshots of. These snapshots will change value over time in a way that depends on the beat frequency of the two LFOs.

Now use a third LFO to vary the frequency of one of the others. The result is a series of arpeggios that aren't tied to traditional pitches, and that alternately cascade up and down at a rate that depends on the frequency of the third LFO.

For demonstration purposes, I'm just using the result to drive a simple oscillator and output, but I'm sure you can think of more intersting applications.

Nice that ark. Very simple but works really well. Cheers.
