Suggestions on a tutorial?

Postby acemonvw » Wed Nov 14, 2012 3:24 am

Anyone have any suggestions on things they'd like to see demonstrated, or walked-through, on the spectralis? I am thinking of more projects to work on and videos to shoot. Might try to slow it down and walk step-by-step through some of the features, but I'm unsure what interests people... Anyone thinking, "Hey, it would be neat if someone went through the process of doing this... or that..."

Of course, I feel like if you already know what it is... then you probably don't need anyone going through it.

UPDATE: Here is a list of all of my tutorials (in sequential order, Green = easy, yellow = intermediate, red = difficult)

Hi!
I've seen somewhere in this forum,that there is a synced lfo "workaround"
is it possible?
it would be nice to see a tut on that!

Yeah, I think I have an idea for that. Someone made a YouTube video of it... I'll give it a try.

Anyone know the best way of doing this?

Effectively, I found some strange LFO menus that talked about LFO attack, decay in the LFO menus, but I'm not entirely sure I understand their purpose. There's also a sequencerline on LFOs, you can sequence LFO's... but when I looked at the help, it said it was to be implemented later... Honestly, I had no idea what it was doing, but it seemed to be doing something.

All I could really figure out was using a sequencerline to make a LP or MM filter cutoff wave that would then act as an LFO... but it isn't really what tolikfilter was asking for.

Anyone know?

viewtopic.php?f=4&t=2074&p=13012&hilit=sync+LFO#p13012

A place to start I suppose. I'm wondering if I can figure out what the LFO numbers mean so we can start figuring out how to interpret them as cycles/minute... but changing them quickly to something else that's useful might prove difficult.

yhea some french dude made a great tutorial about using step lines as lfo...


here´s the idea.... say want a synced SAW UP lfo on the LP (step line 15 LP cutoff)

you place Attack Envelopes on every strong beat 1, 5, 9 & 13
16th note grid
step length set to 4
or
(could also only place one envelope on step1 and set seq length to 4)

this gives you 4step fade (sawUp) on every strong beat (1/4 note)..
now you can change the resolution of the sequencer and it acts like LFO speed

if you want a Saw Down you use a Decay envelope ..
you can combine Attack and Decay envelope to get a triangle
you can customize your LFO in anyway you´d like with combinations of envelope curves..

good luck..

via, this is great!!!

Thanks a lot...I still have problems programming sequences to obtain LFO-like effects

Any chance of getting the link of the original post you metioned?

or....
Any other trick about this issue?....would be very very welcomed


Saludos.

Effectively, that's what I was suggesting. The only issue with that is that you only have that capacity to modulate LP or MM filter cutoff or resonance... But to use the actual LFO's and sync them... must be impossible at this time.

Just use a Oscilator as a lfo! move the phaseparameter to another level than 0 (no free running) i,ve not tried but in a logical thinking way it must work!:-)
