Without modulation it’s only half the fun, right? So let’s get started by clicking one of the empty slots to expand the modulation system: By default an LFO is activated but you can easily choose a different modulator kind from the drop-down menu. Assigning a modulator to a parameter and setting a depth (positive or negative) is also straight forward and can be seen here:
Each modulator can be scaled using the amount knob, in addition you can bypass or scale the output of all modulators at once:
There are 2 types of modulators:
- Generators such as the LFO or the Random modulator produce a signal themselves and can be synced to the DAW.
- Followers such as the Amp or Pitch Follower produce a signal based on an input. In our modulation system you can choose between the Input (I), one of the side-chain inputs (SCA, SCB) or the Output (O) to follow. The side-chain inputs allow complex modulation networks where characteristics of one sample can modulate the FX of another sample and vice versa. Using the output enables the plugin to basically modulate itself so it becomes self-driven. For example, using an amp follower to attenuate feedback in our MagicDelay makes the plugin attenuate the feedback if it exceeds a certain level. Your creativity is the limit here!
