Hello, I am trying to create a circular LFO that I can eventually use to modulate parameters in Live, however I am having some simple mathematical difficulties and am confused as to what the best way to achieve this within max would be.

Basically I just want an oscillator that traces the contour of a circle over and over again. My goal ultimately is to be able to hook this up to two parameters so say you hook up the X coordinate being drawn to effect the gain of an EQ point, and the Y coordinate being drawn to the frequency of the EQ point- you get an automatic version of grabbing an EQ point and moving it around in a circle.

If anybody could point me in the right direction of any objects I should start playing with to achieve this or any simple mathematical formulas for tracing the contour of a circle on an x y grid that would be extremely helpful.

Thanks!
