Scrolling through different LFOs

    Hello! First of all, this forum is really a great initiative. Highly appreciated!

    So, I am working on a sampler instrument with multiple layers. One of the layers contains a number of instances of the Ircam granular oscillator. The Position knob is mapped to two LFOs that I can switch between using a macro, alternately turning the LFOs on and off. Now, would there be a way to add more LFOs with different shapes and switching between them by only using one macro? For instance LFO 1 is turned on when the macro has a value between 0 and 10, LFO 2 when the macro value is 11 – 21, LFO 3 22 – 32 and so on.

    I guess a workaround would be max/msp and OSC or stacking the samples on one key and assigning different LFOs to them, but I am hoping to find a more elegant solution. Any help would be highly appreciated. Thanks!

    Welcome to the forum!

    Maybe modulation mappers could do the job, but just thinking about it hasn’t brought me to a solution yet, I need to be in fort of Falcon in order to try this. I would probably just use key-switches and switch between layers, the other layers could remain un-switched and only the layer with the granular oscillators would be affected by the key-switches. One can also script the key-switches so that they become available in the user interface. But maybe it can be done with a single Macro.

    I am getting somewhere switching three LFOs on and off with a single Macro using Modmappers, but haven’t yet exactly achieved what you’re looking for.

    THANK YOU! Using modulation mappers for each LFO on/off works. I have currently assigned the possition knob to five LFOs with different shapes, and can switch between them using a single macro. So when the on/off button of for example LFO 3 is assigned to the macro, and the modmapper range 55-76 is set to 1, the macro turns the LFO on when it reaches the corresponding values, and turns it off when it reaches a point outside that range.

    Again – thanks a lot!

    Yes indeed, I figured that out a little later at around 5 am in the morning :), glad we found a solution!
