Just made this short video tip!

Pitch variations are a good way to add movement and drama to electronic music.
I used automation in these basic examples to demonstrate how it can work because it's more visual and free, as in freehand, than a LFO. iSyn Poly electronic music studio from Virsyn is very good at this with its capability to simply draw the variations.

Here I made rather obvious variations but they can be as subtle or as dramatic as you want them.

Other software / apps may have different methods to create pitch automation, for instance recording the movement of knobs and sliders. And of course the parameters that can be automated may vary from one app to another.

When rhythmic variations are needed, a LFO is a better tool.


Made a second example with the drum track!
