9. Twisted, moving synths with Serum’s LFO loop points
LFO loopback points can add an extra level of unique expressivity to a patch, enabling you to loop a chosen section of an LFO continuously. For example, if you add a loopback point to the centre of an LFO graph then play a note, you’ll hear the whole LFO play through once, after which the second half of the LFO cycle will continue to loop over indefinitely.
To enable loopback points, the oscillator must first be set to Env mode (so the LFO plays once, like an envelope). Now rightclick on a graph point and select Set Loopback Point Here. Note that, when in legato mode, overlapping notes begin inside the looped LFO area. See our video and preset for a wobbling dubstep style bass that uses this.
