Chapter 14. Effects -- Close Up > ECF-42 Envelope Controlled Filter - Pg. 311

Let's have a look at the CF-101 parameters. Delay--This knob sets the delay time needed to create the chorus/flanger. For best results, use short delay times to create a flanger effect and medium to long delay times for the chorus. Feedback--This knob controls the amount of effect being fed back into the input, which gives character to the effect. LFO Rate--This knob controls the modulation rate of the LFO. Increasing this parameter will speed up the frequency of oscillation. LFO Sync--This button synchronizes the LFO Rate to the tempo of the Reason sequencer. Note that when this button is activated, the LFO Rate knob displays note values rather than the standard numeric value. LFO Mod Amount--This knob is used to assign a depth to the LFO modulation. Send Mode--This button is used to properly integrate the CF-101 with the other Reason devices. When activated, the CF-101 is in Send mode, which means that the device will output only the modulated signal, making it possible to use the Aux send knob to mix in the additional dry signal. When not active, the CF-101 is used as an insert effect, where the device will output a mix of the dry and wet signal. Aside from parameters on the front of the device, the Matrix Pattern Sequencer can also modify the CF-101. Press the Tab key to flip the Device Rack and you will find two CV inputs, one for the Delay parameter, and one for the LFO Rate parameter.
