I'm fairly new to synthing, so I'm kind of baffled by why they use such an opaque system, where the number value on the LFO dial bears no (obvious) relation to the Hz value. Just seems bizarre to me. I understand the motivation of making it the same as (or similar to) the original hardware. People who actually use / used the hardware would be expecting that, so I totally get that. But similar to the way that they allow sync or no sync, why not toss in the option of using Hz values? Maybe there is a good (or at least understandable) technical reason why they don't offer this option, I don't know.
This is something that frustrates me with a lot of music software, specifically when it comes to setting time values to a specific BPM (LFOs, delays, step editors etc). Instead of just allowing the user to input a numerator (basically any number) and then select a denominator (4 for quarter notes, 8 for 8th notes etc) from a dropdown of musically relevant options, they give you a pre-defined list of the ones that people typically use - 1/8, 3/8, 1/4, 3/4 etc. Why?! Give me more control! Why not allow me to do 5/16 or 7/8? It's not like the math / computation it takes is difficult. The only plugin I know of that does this is Groove Delay, a stock plugin for Studio One. It seems like such a logical way to do things, so I can't figure out why more devs haven't glommed onto it.
