Hi, is it possible (I don’t think so)to variate the BPM within cv?

I would love to make subtle variations of the bpm with lfos or envelopes...

Thanks!!!

Hi @kris,

Right now the only way to do this kind of variation is using EME and TEMPO CC.

Will study the possibility to included in the CV IN options.

Thanks for the feedback !

Ummm.  Maybe I'm not understanding the request.  But of course it is easy to vary the BPM by simply feeding a variable voltage into the Elo clock in, right?  I mean, I just plugged one LFO into the frequency control of a second LFO (in order to get a variable speed from the second LFO), and plugged the output of that second LFO into clock input of my Elo, and I'm watching the BPM fluctuate up and down....

Now, what I REALLY want is to be able to do is create sliding polyrhythms by creating minor rhythm differences between tracks... but that's a different matter, and I know that others have been asking for this for some time....

Please, Please!

Thanks.

Hi @dunej

The workaround you propose is totally valid.

Regarding the other question, it is a Hardware / Software limitation.
I can try to summarize the reason why it can't be done.
As all the tracks have the same time base  (1/16 and its multiples and dividers) I know when all the time events take place. so I can use the space between those events to place other less important tasks like refreshing the display, talking with expansions... This way I can assure that all the important time events are placed in its right position, and less important tasks won't interfere in rhythm. I can do this because all the events are sourced by the same internal clock.
if I give different internal clocks to each track I will lose those safe spaces and will compromise rhythm stability.
