Electric Boogaloo with P-LFO? Modulation Squared?
« on: March 10, 2017, 01:58:09 PM »
I'm planning to build an Electric Boogaloo and I purchased a P-LFO board at the same time for some undetermined future project. It just occurred to me that I might be able to use the P-LFO to modulate the rate or depth of the tremolo.

Has anyone used the P-LFO board for anything other than delay? How'd it work out? Are there any pitfalls to be aware of?

Just wondering, what effect do you want to achieve by modulating the modulating section of the tremolo? I can't really imagine what it'd sound like...

1) Slowly cycling between high and low depth settings.
2) Slowly cycling between high and low speeds.
3) Achieving a psuedo random depth by setting the P-LFO speed faster than the tremolo speed.

I'm not sure if many of the settings will sound good. I'll probably want to modify the P-LFO's speed range so that it's even slower than the tremolo's. Mostly I'm curious if I could do it (are there any technical challenges), not if I should do it (will it sound good).
