Just a quick question about the quantize feature on the LFO in a Kaivo. If it's quantized to the scale chosen, what's the difference between hitting "quantize" and patching from pitch to LFO frequency? And what kind of practical uses does it have?
what's the difference between hitting "quantize" and patching from pitch to LFO frequency?
These do totally different things, so I'm not sure how to answer that.
You can see what quantize does when you look in the display. See how a solid line turns into dots? Those are the values of the LFO output in x and y changing from continuous values to quantized values. The output signal is restricted only to specific values that are in the scale chosen in the KEY module. When patches to the pitch of the oscillator with default scaling, this will make all the pitch changes "in tune" with the selected scale.
