LFO with swing

September 29, 2010 | 6:41 am

I’m making an LFO Hub in Max For Live (inside Ableton) and I’m wondering how I can get a phasor~ to have "swing"? Rate~ does all the adjustments post the central phasor~, I’m thinking possibly some combination of rate tildes with offset phases.

These guys have done it with their pluggin

but that’s just for their internal control. My pluggin will allow mapping to anything in Live. I don;t care about graphical what naught, just a swing amount control.

the module used in the bpatcher is below

Have a look at http://cycling74.com/forums/topic.php?id=21995
Oli Larkin’s swingcounter~ works for me, but the link has gone from the original thread, and some people have reported problems with it,

Here is Miller’s answer

it sounds like all you need is to add a low frequency
sinusoid to thephasor~ output and then wrap it back between 0 and 1.
For instance if the phasor is going at 2 Hz, add a 1/2-Hz, amplitude 1
sinusoid and listen to the beat get warped. Then detune the sinusoid
slightly for even more fun.

@ oil
yeah that works for a square wave thx… but I moreso need this to work directly on the main phasor~ which controls sin and triangle waves for dubstep
