The RATE knob controls the speed of the LFO’s cycle and has two modes. These modes depend on the state of the LFO SYNC button.

  • SYNC OFF – The LFO’s rate is not synchronized with the host tempo and the LFO’s rate is measured in Hz. The rate increases as it is turned clockwise.
  • SYNC ON – The LFO’s rate is synchronized to the host’s tempo. Changing the rate in Sync mode scrolls through different rhythmic value groups — it does not simply get faster as the knob is turned clockwise.

Some examples of note values:
8x – Stretches a cycle across eight bars.
1/8 – Cycles the LFO every eighth-note.
1/8 dot – Cycles the LFO every dotted eighth-note.
1/8 triplet – Cycles the LFO every eighth-note triplet
