Yeah, if you tie it to something like cutoff, resonance or LFO speed etc, you can get some really expressive sounds. It brings a synth's expression a bit closer to real instruments by offering more variety in the way you can choose to play a note.

Ah, I wish my keyboard had aftertouch.

Matt: It's a feature which lets you send out controller data by exerting and easing pressure on a key after you've played it's note.

I always figured this was deliberate, as Karma's a kind of simulation of an analogue modular synth. Like the way there's enough low-level noise that you can get some to self oscillate by pushing up a filter's resonance.

I use feedback loops quite a lot in my patches, actually. You've just got to be careful with the volume faders (or use a compressor). I've nearly blown my ears to hell, but it's never crashed because feedback, I must say.

Warnings wouldn't be a bad idea though, as long as you could disable them.

Re: trigger - yeah I had the same "problem" until I realised. Makes sense to have it trigger with the host really. Fellow EXT user, by the way.

If you are using the random waveform in an LFO module, turning the frequency down should still work as it does with the standard waveforms.

Go to add module>modulator>envfollow. Then link an input signal to the envelope follower and link the envelope follower to a filter module's cutoff. The filter's cutoff will now increase or decrease depending on the amplitude of the incoming signal.
