I asked because I thought I would go with the three-inverter-section LFO I see in the Anderton tremolo.  I could get two independent LFOs from one 4049.  Problem is, that doesn't leave any invertor sections to spare.  So using two unsynced LFOs is available, as is using one.  But using one LFO and inverting its output in order to countersweep is not readily available.  I mean, it's certainly feasible, but I'd rather keep the footprint small - the basis for me using the 4049 instead of something requiring a bunch of larger-size electros.

I agree it's a question of taste.  I've never knowingly heard an unsynced harmonic trem.  If someone has heard it and it sounded so-so, great, or indistinguishable from synced, I'd like to know.

Well Mark, as my harmonic trem is now operating nicely on the breadboard, I can just throw another LFO at it and see :icon_twisted:
But as it's a completely BJT based thingamajig, it'll start getting a bit more cumbersome.
At least we can hear what it might sound like.
I would think it'd do a leslie type thing maybe.

Sounds pretty terrible, haha.
But I haven't delved too deep yet.

Ah well, we tried.
