Recently I was told by a friend about a vst fx that uses a single cycle wav as a mod source. Effectively using the waveform as an lfo. Unfortunately, he couldn't remember what it was. Does this sound familiar to anyone?

Im sure there are many, but one that instantly comes to mind is Atlantis.

In Atlantis, any WAV that can be loaded into the audio oscillators can be loaded into the LFOs as well, so whatever you put in your 'Chips' folder (the folder where you put your own samples) can be used for both.

Works great and allows for rather unusual modulation patterns because it can go far beyond the standard Sine Triangle Saw Square stuff.

I remember using Atlantis back in the day. It was cool at the time. Something a bit more recent and more along the effects route would be more my thing. You're quite right, flexibility of lfos is the main advantage with this approach, my main reason for this enquiry.
