Usage ideas

  • Use the triangle wave as an LFO to control modulation on other modules - filter cutoffs, waveshaping, VCAs
  • Use the utility LFO to modulate the rate of another LFO in your system: complex modulation ahoy!
  • Use the triangle output as a modulation source whilst also using the square wave as a clock source: tempo-synced modulation. (You could feed the square wave into a clock-divider, too, for syncing a faster LFO wave to a slower - but still rhythmically relevant - clock).
  • Feed the square wave into a Foxfield GT2 Gate-to-Trigger converter to turn it into a short pulse, ideal for plucking an LPG.
  • Use an attenuator (such as a Foxfield Averter), an offset, or a rectifier, to scale or offset the LFO output to your needs.
