Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from This plugin still surprises me....great teacher???? I've had this plugin for a few years now and have never gone deep into it like how this tutorial shows. A very clear and concise tutorial that gets into all the workings of the plugin. I hope the author has Nerve by Xfer and does another great tutorial on this. Will definitely look forward to more tutorials from the author. Excellent job????

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Excellent! Covers everything Exhaustive video explanations of LFOTool are thin on the ground, and Larry makes it easy to understand, so this is a valuable addition to Groove3. I expect all tracks released from now on to contain at least one LFOTool! :-)
