The signal generator is a virtual device that is intended to generate different periodic or random signals. These signals are useful for creating automatic effects in creatures such as breathing, circles or random movements. The device can output multiple signals synchronized from the same source. It is also possible to control the generation parameters from other channels for manual control or nested waveforms.
