Here’s how you can easily create sidechain pumping, analog delay pitch modulation, and “screaming” modular effects using the Waves Element virtual analog synth:

1. To create a sidechain pumping effect:

  • In the MOD MATRIX section, assign LFO3 to the destination VCA.
  • In the LFO 3 section, set the waveform TYPE to Saw Up.
  • In the LFO 3 section, set the TIME to quarter notes (1/4).

2. To create a “screaming” modular effect:

  • In the MOD MATRIX section, assign LFO3 to a destination such as Global Pitch.
  • In the MOD MATRIX section, assign LFO4 to the destination LFO3 Rate.
  • In the LFO 3 section, set the waveform TYPE to Pulse.
  • In the LFO 4 section, set the waveform TYPE to Triangle.

3. To create an analog delay pitch modulation effect:

  • In the FX section, set FEEDBACK substantially high (and make sure that the adjacent MIX knob is turned sufficiently high as well).
  • In the MOD MATRIX section, assign any of the LFOs to the destination Delay Time.
