LFO

LFO stands for Low-frequency oscillation. The name comes from the fact that it is an electronic signal with a low frequency, which oscillates to create a rhythmic pulse, or wobble. LFO's are common in synths and help vary their sound capabilities.

A number of popular effects are based around low frequency oscillation, namely chorus, vibrato, phasing, flanging and rotary speaker effects.
 

Sorcer

Sorcer

Sorcer is a polyphonic wavetable synth LV2 plugin from OpenAV. Its sonic fingerprint is one of harsh modulated sub-bass driven walls of sound. Two morphing wavetable oscillators and one sine oscillator provide the generation routines. The LFO can be mapped to wavetable modulation as well as filter cutoff. An ADSR allows for shaping the resulting sound, while a master volume finishes the signal chain.

Fabla

Fabla

Fabla is an open-source LV2 drum sampler plugin instrument from OpenAV. It is ideal for loading up your favorite sampled sounds and bashing away on a MIDI controller. Or if it’s crafty beat programming your after that’s cool too! The ADSR envelope allows the shaping of hi-hats and kicks while the compressor beefs up the sound for those thumping kicks!

ADSR envelope

An ADSR envelope, which stands for attack, decay, sustain and release, is an envelope used to shape synthesized sounds.

Low-pass filter

A low-pass filter (LPF) is a EQ filter that let's all low frequencies pass through unaffected, but cuts high frequencies. For this reason, it is also sometimes referred to as a high cut filter.

Most software EQ's will allow you to choose what frequency you want the filter to start at. Some will also allow you to configure the amount the frequency drops off below that point.
