Hello,
Could you please reduce the minimum rate from 0.1Hz to 0.001Hz or at least 0.01Hz so that I can get proper control over all the plugins in Multipass and Snap Heap (as I'm running most of them together and it's all running way too fast, even at 40bpm [the slowest speed setting in Mixcraft]).
Also could you put a mix level into the Tape Stop Plugin please.
Thanks.

I'm adding a TODO-note to allow lower LFO frequencies. Very long LFO sweeps like that (0.001Hz) sound like something you should probably do with DAW automation though. You can automate one of the macro knobs and then connect that to the snapin parameters you want to sweep.

How do you envision a mix level working on the Tape Stop? Simply blending the wet and the dry signal? There might be uses for something like that. Luckily you can get that effect already by setting up two parallel lanes in Snap Heap and adding Tape Stop to one of them, then mixing the lanes to your content.

Cheers! / Per

Thanks for the response Per, that's great news. The macro knob idea is something I will try in the meantime. Thanks.
Yes, I envisioned a wet/dry level with the Tape Stop, which would mean that it would enable both the original and processed versions within the effected frequency range thereby multiplying the overall effects within the sound while still enabling control within the interface. For example, Tape Stop within one Lane with a Delay after it and the Mix level of both automated to appear rhythmically but with the Tape Stop Start & Stop Times modulated by a very slow LFO. It should produce ever changing sonic shapes appearing out of the Delay. That is the kind of thing I was thinking about. :D

I want this for phaseplant as well. I want an lfo to very slowly sweep a sync or something else and it seems really odd to try and do that in the daw. If there is a way to get the lfo slower just let me know.
