Do check out TINRS Wobbler too. A bit big and expensive but a kind of take on the whole LFO concept that you won’t find anywhere else. The physical modelling algorithms are very cool.
Just wanted to +1 this. Wobbler is great and has some rather original modes. One of my favorites!

My LFO's....

Dixie+II (oscillator)
Eowave Zone BF (yes the wave patterns are reversed, but I can deal with it.)
and my favorite... Studio Electronics STE.16.... which actually is an SE and Eowave collaboration.

The XAOC Batumi looks nice, but I don't have it (yet)

(type of music I make.... drone atmospheres, deep late-night beats.)

Just to be that one voice against the miniaturization trend, which really dislike, if you wanna check out something more hands on, I am pretty happy with the Vermona Fourmulator. Big knobs, no menus, no button combos, some nice little extras. The only gripe many habe with it, is it will only update a channels rate at full beat clocks, when synced, which is not always desirable.

My STE.16 has huge knobs and also has 3 position paddle switches.]]
But I will check-out the Vermona... thanks

I have Batumi, Pam, and Kermit mK3 in my two racks and love them together. So powerful as they do more than just LFOs except for Batumi which is a quad LFO function only that I am aware of.

Doepfer makes at least a couple of quad LFOs if you just want a workhorse.

Pam's has 8 LFO's and Batumi has 4 (I think)? What can the Batumi do that a Pam's can't?

Free running LFOs.

Audio rate.

Much more complex and musical quad/phase/mix options - esp with the expert firmware.

Modcan quad LFO still winning for me 7 years later!
I saw one second hand at Ctrl recently- not sure if its still there but the price was eye watering...
