This video, featuring Korg analog engineer Tatsuya Takahashi, takes a look at the new littleBits Korg LFO module.
The LFO module is currently under consideration for manufacture at the littleBits BitLab. At the BitLab, visitors can view proposed new modules and vote for the ones that they’d like to see manufactured.
The LFO is an oscillator module that allows you to make slow sweeping changes to sound parameters in the synth kit or with other littleBits modules. You can control the following parameters directly on the module:
- Rate/Frequency knob (speed of oscillation)
- Waveshape control knob (change the duty cycle of a pulse wave or morph a sawtooth to triangle to ramp waveform)
- Waveform selection switch (select triangle/saw or pulse waveform)
The input of the module controls the amplitude of the LFO. An onboard LED shows the rate of oscillation.
If you’re interested in the littleBits LFO module going to production, you can weigh in at the BitLab site.
