Here is a demonstration of the sound and functionality of the Arturia MicroBrute LFO and patch-panel.
Background video description:
In my last video, I showed how the Microbrute’s LFO will sync to external MIDI clock and used the LFO to modulate the MicroBrute itself. But using the LFO CV OUT from the Micro, you can also modulate another synth. In this video, I’ve got the Micro’s LFO modulating the filter on the MiniBrute. You’ve probably notices I’m using a Leatherman multi-plier to hold down keys on the MicroBrute to allow the sequence to run “hands-free”. I have been told that Arturia is releasing a software update on Nov. 12 that will allow the sequencer to run hands-free using a MIDI CC command. Until I get the update, I’ll be using the weight of the tool to hold keys down.

Real-time physics, lighting, and sound design using Max 6 and Ableton Live. Recorded using syphon.
Each ball is assigned a MIDI note that is sent to Ableton whenever the ball collides with another object. MIDI velocity is determined by the speed of the ball on impact. Gravity changes with several LFO objects, along with an attractive force in the middle of the scene.
From the upcoming feature film LFO.
LFO is a dark comedy/drama/Sci-Fi about a man who realizes that he can hypnotise with sound. He starts experimenting on his neighbors, where the abuse of power takes over and, eventually, severe consequences for mankind are at stake.
Film will be released summer/fall 2013.

Here is a demonstration of the sound and functionality of the low frequency oscillator of the Yamaha CS-50.
This is a compilation of the possibilities of a LFO-sync modded Korg Monotron analog synthesizer.
In this mod (see also http://stevewoodward.posterous.com/lfo-reset-point-on-korg-monotron), the low-frequency oscillator (LFO) of the Monotron (sync slave) can be retriggered by pulse signals in this case from a Roland TR-626 rhyrtm computer (sync master). The trigger signals sent by the TR-626 can be programmed by its rimshot pattern. Shuffled notes of the sync master are directly introduced into the Monotron LFO, to give also a shuffle effect.
Advantages of this mod is the low-budget (~2$, only a few cables and a 3.5 mm plug are needed) and the possibility to sync other music devices to the TR-626 via MIDI at the same time. Like shown here a Nanoloop (http://www.nanoloop.de/gameboy) cadtridge for Gameboy Classic, can also be synced with the same pulses.
This LFO-sync Mod enhances the possibilities of the Korg Monotron significantly.
It allows to use the synchronized Monotron analog filter LFO for external audio, as well as for the internal voltage controlled oscillator (VCO).
If the Monotron LFO frequency is tuned higher the retrigger frequency of the sync master, there is also the possiblilty of cross-modulation effects, like for the unsynced version.
In this video, Arturia Sound Design Manager, Mike Hosker, shows you how to sync Spark with MiniBrute to create locked arpeggiated and LFO patterns with your beats.
Live ambient music performance on Access Virus C (Indigo 2) using rhythmic LFOs, reverb, resonance and envelope filter adjustments.
Excerpt take from a longer session.
Again a very short demo of one of Tomas’ new modules. This video shows just the LFO running in trigger mode, and then in gated mode.
There are only few LFO modules integrating a gate delay and a VCA to create this delayed and inceasing tremolo/vibrato that sounds so musical.
