Default Re: "Step phaser" effect on Eleven Rack?

Something like this?:

Generally these type of effects are created by having some period control signal change an effect parameter on the fly.

On a synthesizer, the is a periodic control signal generated by something called a LFO - Low Frequency Oscillator. They can be set to sine waves, square waves, and something called "Sample and Hold" - which sounds like a random sequence.

You can also change parameters on effects with some kind of pattern generator like a MIDI arpegiator.

Alas, the 11R doesn't have any LFOs or pattern generators. However, you could configure a synth to send it's LFO into the 11R as a MIDI CC. The 11R can change up to 4 amp/effect parameters at a time from the same MIDI CC.
