Synced LFO "frequency" modulation not possible?

Post by Beatmaster » Mon Oct 26, 2015 10:05 am

Hi all,

i am still new to the Pro 2 and experimenting with this great synth alot.
One thing i would love to do and i am used to do with software synth is modulating the speed of a midi clock synced LFO with e.g. the step sequencer.

I would love to switch the LFO form e.g. 1/8 to 1/4 to 1/1 and so on.
I tried to modulate this with a track on the sequencer. It does not work for me.
As soon as i switch the LFO from synced to unsyned, the modulation of the LFOs frequency works without any problems, but sadly not synced to the midi clock. And with my band Project we have quite often tempo changes, so it s not an option just tune the LFO speed to the right amount.

Short Version of my post:
Is modulating the "frequency" of a to midi clock synced LFO possible on a PRO 2?

Hi,

You are quite correct I just tried it and it doesn't work.

This is probably a bug, send them a message from here http://www.davesmithinstruments.com/sup ... t-support/ and ask about it.

Cheers

Andy

I received very quickly a friendly response that the behavior i described is the normal operation and that nothing is wrong with my synth.
Thy will add it to the feature request list :)

Fingerst crossed that this will come. I would love that feature.
