Update: turns out I wrongly assumed it phased at the lowest point, turns out phase is at 0.
I couldn’t find any posts about this, so I wonder if it is me doing something wrong here or not.
I am trying to make a LFO that combines several LFO’s to make a single complex LFO. All was going great until I wanted to implement phase shifting between two phasors.
What I noticed is that it works great if both LFO’s have the same frequency, however once I changed one of the LFO’s frequencies I got some unexpected behaviour.
So I made a slimmed down setup with two sinus phasors and a sync button. With both phasors at the same frequency the sync button does what you expect and the waveforms stack on top of each other. Double the rate of one of the phasors however and they go out of phase and stay that way even after resyncing.
That to me makes no sense as a double rate phasor should stay in sync, it just makes twice as many waves.
I made a video on my Instagram displaying the issue:
I hope someone can explain what is going on =)
