Creating rhythmic movement with the LFO's

So let's dig in a bit deeper with the two LFOs in the modulation section. So here's LFO1 and here's LFO2, and for both of them we can have different waveforms. You select the waveform for LFO1 right here, and for LFO2 you select it right here. So just as a reminder, LFO stands for low-frequency oscillator, and basically it's an oscillator just like we have in the Synthesis section. The difference is the synthesis oscillators get routed through the filter and routed to the amplifier and then they come out through the speakers and you hear the sound.

The LFO, instead of sending an audible signal, sends a control signal and its whole purpose is to modulate some other parameter, but it does it in a periodic way, because it's a waveform like a triangle waveform. So it will modulate the parameter back and forth, and then usually they happen at a lower rate or a lower frequency. So, for example, this LFO1 can happen as slow as 0.01 Hertz, and it can go all the way up to 100 He...
