PLL-based VCO / LFO

Model: BLM Phobos Lunar LFO 2020

Width: 12hp

Current: TBA

This module contains about 5 modules in one. You get a lot of features. This is using a Phase Lock Loop based internal patch to create the oscillation (LFO). I then give you access to the clock divider used in the Phase Lock process. Think of this module as a 'phase lock loop for dummies'. Just play and forget kind of module. No menu diving or complicated stuff to remember.

This LFO can go audio rate or really slow using the toggle switch to decide LFO/HFO mode. There is an internal CV switch for you to select from 6 wave forms. The special wave form is the step generated wave. It sounds like a quantized ramp wave, and moves at half the overall internal LFO rate. There is a nice Level out knob to control the LFO wave output. This LFO has very HARD sync, that will reset the LFO.

The other half of this module contains a clock divider that also uses a CV selectable output. The clock divider can also go audio rate and sound like a sub harmonic generator when in audio rate. At very high frequencies (FREQ knob fully clockwise), the clock divider will lock up, this is due to the CMOS chip, this is normal.

The clock divider can be used with internal clock or external clock.

This is a fun performance type of LFO with just about all the features an LFO should have. There is 1v/ octave tracking of about 4 octaves when used as an oscillator. This product is for most part more of an LFO. The best patch one can do with this product is a 'cross' patch from the Phobos Lunar LFO, and have it patched to your Oscillator module. Then patch your oscillator to the CV waveform select on the Phobos. Hear what your oscillator sounds like, it will blow your sound palette. I demonstrated this patch at the Knob Con 2016 conference.
