The Clk input can take any type of oscillating signal that swings from 0V or below to 2V or above and the freq knob sets the ratio of the LFO output to the frequency of the incoming signal - this could be a clock signal, LFO signal, comparator output etc:
Here the Frequency knob is set to 1x and the sine wave output of the LFO is the same frequency as the clock:
I rather use a div/mult from/inside the clock itself, because all these clock dividers/ multipliers need a few clicks from the clock to calculate the bpm, so they are always “late”. (and speed-up/slowdown at the start).
• has lots of built in clock divisions and multiplications available for selection, including dotted and triplet timings.
• it calculates the bpm within the first 2-3 pulses of a 48 ppqn (or faster) clock the first time it runs and remembers that bpm the next time it runs, so it’s correct from the start and doesn’t skip triggers, run late, or speed up/down in any perceptible way.
• if the built in multiplications are not sufficient, you can design your own multiplications by drawing in however many trigger pulses you want, on whatever cycle length you select. Need 9 pulses every 5/8 or something crazy like that? ShapeMaster can do it.
