We present an efficient method for generating frequency combs in the mid-infrared (MIR) spectral range in bulk lithium niobate crystals as well as in waveguides. Our approach is simple and robust, since it is based on single-pass configuration of femtosecond Optical Parametric Generation (OPG) seeded by a telecom continuous-wave laser. Precise and fast tuning of the seed laser allows to rapidly change the offset frequency of the generated MIR comb independent of its repetition rate. The MIR comb offset frequency is inherently known, so its direct detection is not required. An additional degree of freedom that further complements the versatility of our light source is a unique way of repetition rate or mode spacing adjustments. This is achieved by our new concept of coherent multi-seeding that depending on the configuration allows for pulse train modulation and mode spacing, or repetition rate division by an integer number.
