Short Question [Massive]
« on: April 22, 2016, 04:47:44 pm »
How do you macro control the rate as perfect ratios in massive? Like in serum I just put configure a macro on the rate for the lfo, but in massive I can only do that when its a freely running ratio, not like 1/8 , 1/16 or w/e...

sorry if hard to understand DX

From what I've seen, there's no real way to control the *synced* rate on one of Massive's LFO's with a macro, simply because the knob disappears. You may just have to automate the rate separately. Once the sync tool is activated within the LFO, the designated automation control becomes: "MODULATOR5-DEN" (Assuming you are using Modulator #5). I'm using Logic so not sure if this will remain to have the same label in other DAWs.

Here are the rates by number amount that I've tested when controlling this automation, just incase you need:

.13 = 1/2
.25 = 1/4
.38 = 1/8
.50 = 1/12
.63 = 1/16
.75 = 1/24
.88 = 1/32

For example, if your automation line is anywhere between .13 and .24, it will have a 1/2 rate. At .25 it becomes 1/4, and so on for all intervals.

Sorry if confusing, hope this helps you make some cool LFO rhythms :)
