Re: Additional LFOs for Nord Wave 2

Based on a post I saw on another forum, the plan would be to allow use for all Nords, not just the Wave2. It would be very useful on the Stage3 as well.

Anyone with an iOS device, a lightning to USB adapter and this app could add 4 LFO's to a Nord for $5.

I’ve used steppolyarp in this way, I’m sure this would also work.

Not such a good deal if you don't have an iOS device though! :)

Even better deal, learn a bit of PureData https://puredata.info/ and make as many LFOs as you want (and more).

Anything can be approximated with free software these days. However, there are plenty of people out there that still buy hardware and see the benefit in convenience and the tactile nature of knobs for programming. The great thing is how completely integrated it is with my patches, which has modernized my P6. I've owned plenty of pieces of auxiliary hardware that work great, albeit within their own ecosystem that doesn't play well with others. I've also bought plenty of wonky software that were supposed to work with specific hardware, yet failed at even that task. Steve has tailored the LFE to integrate perfectly with specific synths and it simply works as advertised.

Now I'm not Steve's PR guy, I'm simply a paying customer. I've been complaining to anyone who would listen about how insane it is that DSI/Sequential still haven't learned the obvious importance that categories serve for sorting through the massive amounts of presets available on their machines. I fully realize that there are librarian programs for that, but I'm sick of dealing with them. At the end of the day, the less I interact with the computer while in music mode, the more enjoyable I personally find it. Fortunately Steve added categories for the LFE with an update. When I pointed out that there was no "strings" category in an email, he swiftly got back to me within the hour with an updated firmware that added said category, even more impressive considering he's in a drastically different timezone.

Why I'm writing all this is purely for a selfish reason. I was one of the people that was initially harsh on the Wave 2 for the lack of modulation options. Problem is I started to really listen to some of the sounds coming from Nord synths and soon realized why many folks out there love them. I now have a Wave 2 on pre-order and I'm hoping there's enough interest for Steve to add support for it in the expectation that it will do as much for my Wave 2 as it has for my P6. Again, it's simple and it works, which was, at least from my outsider's view, a large reason why I thought certain users gravitate towards Nord.

I agree. I really hope support for the Wave2 (and other Nords for that matter) gets added to the LFE. It'd tempt me to consider purchasing a Wave2, that's for sure.

It would be nice if someone upload a video
