Hi, Chris!

I believe you may be a bit confused and that Modulate is meant as something
to "modulate" other things with, like a LFO in traditional synths, not as
something to be "modulated", then  listened to, though of course if the
ampiltude and frequencty would be set to apropriate values you could listen
to it as well.

Here's a small example I cooked up for you. Note I'm using sync(2) for FM
modulation, adding m's output to s's frequency. When controlling other Ugens
or more advanced structures you may want to periodically poll m.last().

Modulate m => SinOsc s => dac;
2 => s.sync;
20 => m.vibratoGain;
2 => m.vibratoRate;
50 => m.randomGain;

minute => now;
Hope that helps,
