10. LFO 1, 11. LFO 2
The timbre has two LFOs (Low Frequency Oscillator).
The cyclic change produced by an LFO can modulate various aspects of the sound such as the pitch, tone, or volume.
Use "WAVE" (knob 1) to select the LFO waveform, knob 2 to select the key sync method, "TEMPO SYNC" (knob 3) to synchronize the LFO
cycle to the tempo, and "FREQUENCY"/"SYNC NOTE" (knob 4) to specify the frequency.

LFO (Low Frequency Oscillator)
The LFO (Low Frequency Oscillator) is an oscillator that produces a relatively slow (low-
frequency) oscillation, and is used to apply cyclic modulation to various aspects of the sound.
Some typical ways to use LFO are vibrato (use LFO to raise and lower the pitch), wah (use LFO
to raise and lower the cutoff frequency), and tremolo (use LFO to raise and lower the
LFO1 and LFO2 can be used as Virtual Patch sources to apply modulation to a variety of parameters. ( p.30)

destination, and apply modulation to produce various effects.
The microKORG provides some dedicated parameters for applying modulation from the LFO;
for LFO1 you can use OSC1 "CONTROL 2," and for LFO2 you can use PITCH "VIBRATO INT."

    I couldn't get separate keys for my miro korg.

    I had to buy the whole key assemble

    ​I needed one ocatave of white keys
