In This Lesson: Understanding and working with LFO's
LFO's are very intimidating to most beginners, but with some simple explanation, they become very simple.
An LFO (Low Frequency Oscillator) is usually represented by a shape. The shape determines the depth of an effect, combined with a timeline.
Rather than explaining this in words, watch the video to get an idea of how LFO's work. You will gain much more knowledge as to how this works by your own experimentation than anything I can write here.
So instead of confusing you with a bunch of complex terminology, just experiment and follow along with the video!
In the example at the end of the video, pay attention to the "Staircase" pattern that is shown at the top of the Maelstrom. That is the most obvious way of showing you how an LFO works, as it is a very blatant LFO.
You may need to watch that portion of the video several times in order to fully grasp the concept. If you are having trouble understanding, watch the video 2 or 3 times, as much as needed!
My name is Andrew Muller. I love creative art, music, television shows, movies, video games, and a good story.
If you had to find me somewhere, you would probably find me down at O'neils home cooking eating an organic sweet-potato bun breakfast sandwich with ham.
Among my friends, it's a "Muller Classic Move" to eat Mcdonald's at 2am because it's cheap and open 24/7. The joke here is that I'm an idiot.
I play drums, guitar, piano, and I write & perform music for My Goal Is Telepathy. Take a listen to the latest sound here.
