Help with simple LFO patch: Using interchangeable waveforms


    Mar 13 2012 | 2:01 am
    Hello,
    I am wanting to allow a simple LFO patch to switch between waveforms, however, I am having trouble implementing this through the selector~. Could somebody give me some advice, or point me in the direction of some other simple LFO patches? The text for this modification is below. I have outlined the bits I want to swap in red.
