Device Overview

Name/Version: Probabilibuddy 1.1
Author: CaligulaCuddles  
Description: The Probabilibuddy is a chance-based modulator or, as I like to think of it, an enormously lazy LFO. It's handy for giving a busted-down analog modulation to different effects.

This device randomly modulates whatever it's mapped to. What makes this different than a typical "random" LFO is that it has a "central" point that it will rest at. You can program it to modulate up from the center point or down from it.

Here's a run down of the dials for the up and down modulation:
Prob: Probability of an impulse that modulates the mapped parameter.
Depth: How deep the parameter modulation goes.
Curve: Defines the exponential curve for modulation.
Speed: How fast the impulse transitions to and from the destination depth.
Hold: How long the modulation stays up/down before returning (unless another triggered impulse modulates it again).

General settings:
Smooth: Smooths out transitions. This is very useful for keeping high-probability modulations from jumping around too fast.
Center: The center point of the resting/unmodulated signal.
Range: The breadth of the effect (sort of like a secondary Depth dial).

The rest should be fairly obvious. Hook it up and see what mayhem happens. The display at the top reflects the modulation, and the little button in between triggers the device manually.

Have fun.

1.1 - Fixed some dumb mistakes with speed scaling and depth knobs.

No idea why the image I used got kinda messed up. It looks better in Ableton for whatever reason.

Looks great but mapping is not... mapping. (live 11, win 10)
