fairly cheap LFO for live performances?

Postby nopdeda » Tue Mar 06, 2012 6:30 pm


I work in a nightclub in the Atlanta GA area and we're hoping to do some dubstep parties. I would like to have some marching drums like bass drums and quads and run them through a device that will produce chopped up dubstep sounds. Can you suggest a fairly cheap device for doing that? If possible I'd also like to put keyboards and a bass guitar through it at different times, and also try to use it to put the effect on animal sounds like owl hoots and dogs barking, and pigs... Does anyone have any suggestions?

It's not that simple. You acheive the main wobble from an envelope filter or wah pedal, but it will not sound the same. Also stale if the steps it wobbles are the same each hit.

check if your keyboards have cv outs or it has a sequencer with cv out that you can sync to some of your audio stuff for some audio manipulation. I think the cheapest way will be going pc-based with some softwares, since you want to play animal sounds, manipulate the music and even some of the lighting, but i dont know the softwares to recommend.

Moog Ring Mod might be able to give you inconsistent choppy LFO sounds, but no guarantees. I was fudging around with mine last night and getting weird tremolo patterns from the carrier oscillator

Isn't the Fuzzrocious Tremorslo basically made for this kind of stuff?
