Trying to get my head around the Active and Passive Mod modes (I assume Mod means modify or modulate). The manual states this:
Active Mod.: LFO is actively modulating (offsetting) the incoming CC value of the same id, generating new values even if incoming CC value is not changing.
As I understand that (and to be honest I dont really understand the finer details of that statement, particularly the second half of the sentence) that the LFO values will modify the existing value by how much the DEPTH property is set to.
For example, when set to Free Running at 64 depth, and to operate on CC74, the filter freq modulates between 0-127 on my synth.
When set to Active Mod or Passive Mod it does nothing. The filter freq is static. I would expect when set to Passive with 22 depth operating on a filter freq set to 46, that the filter would now modulate between 24 (46-22) and 68 (46+22).
I’m guessing its the “generating new values even if incoming CC value is not changing” part that I dont understand which is causing this behaviour. The incoming bit. How do I get the current filter freq value from my synth to ‘incoming’ into the LFO pipe so it knows to modulate it centered around the current value.
Any thoughts on how to use this.
