lfo beats


Bloom's 2 LFOs can operate at speeds of up to 1024 Hz.

The LFO modules' Visualizers represent the current LFO shape.

Sync button

With the Sync button enabled, the Rate control is set in BPM values derived from the tempo of the host within which Bloom is running.

With the Sync button disabled, the Rate control is set in Hz.


The Rate control dictates the speed of the LFO's oscillation.

Bloom also responds to certain MIDI notes to switch between sync'd LFO rates on the fly, even with the Sync button disabled.



The Shape control morphs the shape of the LFO continuously through various waveform shapes.

At the default setting of 50%, the LFO shape is a sine wave.

The Morph control shifts the centre point of the waveform without altering the wavelength. It is similar to a pulse width control in that it varies the duty cycle of the waveform.


The Phase control allows you to adjust the phase of the LFO within 360 degrees.

Note: This control cannot be modulated with the TransMod system.


The Gain control offers a final attenuation control for the output of the module before it enters the TransMod modulation system. At 100%, no attenuation is applied to the output modulation signal.

This control is intended to be modulated by other TransMod sources, in a similar way to using a VCA to scale one modulation source with another in an analogue modular system.

MIDI note functions

Bloom's LFOs respond to incoming MIDI notes for resetting to the start phase and for setting various sync'd delay times. See the Advanced MIDI functions section for details.
