In-Depth Overview of Absynth LFOs and Internal Recorder
This is by far one of the most complex and deep soft synths on the market today. And the Absynth LFOs are a big part of why you can achieve so much with just once instance of this powerhouse synth. Of course, the flixible envelope system and the fact that Absynth supports most of the major types of synthesis carry the bulk of the load when it comes to potential, but the Absynth LFOs provide a rather unique set of modulation opportunities to affect your sounds in both delivery and development. This well-presented video tutorial does a great job of explaining things in a way that even the most inexperienced of users can follow along with. It is definitely one to bookmark and revisit again later, as it is full of helpful information.
It begins by explaining the different parts of the LFO window and how the Absynth LFOs are routed to different parameters throughout the synth. There are a total of three main LFO modules that can be used on this page, but there are also more Absynth LFOs built into the flexible envelope system. This means that the potential for modulation possibilities is really only limited by your own imagination. Of course, you can also use any kind of waveform that already exists in the factory library to run in these main LFO units, but you can also create your own. There really is no end to what you can do when you dig deep into this feature.
All of the features fo the Absynth LFOs are covered with plenty of time left over to share a bit about on of the most overlooked, and very awesome, features that Absynth has to offer. The internal recorder! Yes, you can actually capture audio directly inside of Absynth! This incredibly brilliant feature is a wonderful tool to use for resampling. You can capture one sounds and overdub another, building a bigger and more complex sound as you go along with each recording you make. You can then save these recordings as .wav files and further process them in your DAW of choice. Yet one more reason Absynth is one of the coolest synths ever created!
