i think you misunderstood, i have not yet tried icarus!Markus Krause wrote: ↑Wed Dec 07, 2022 3:17 amYou do not seem to be familiar with Icarus and did not do sound design with it. Otherwise you would know that Icarus offers also very complex LFOs as well two MSEGs. The LFO waveforms include also filtered-noise and smoothed waveforms which can be set to a random phase on noteOn. This works very well for emulating drift.thats not what analog drift is. it is the constant flow of the oscillators, they are not fixed but drifting both to the left and to the right. can be seen on an oscilloscope easily. its not easy to emulate using an lfo, since it drifts faster, slower, left, right... and its not the same as random phase either. so either a synth has this function or not..Very easy to emulate analog drift in Icarus (and most synths) by using a slow LFO on the fine pitch control.
what you are talking about is the fact that old analog synths go out of tune and arent fully on pitch. so i suppose its ALSO a form of analog drift. but its drifting on pitch whereas i mean drifting of phase/the actual waveform. and using an lfo to do that sounds way too sterile imo.
was just replying to the guy who said you can simulate this using an lfo to control pitch, and i tried to explain thats not what i mean with drift, wasnt looking for an organic sounding vibrato
