Figure 238. MFX Arpeggiator
The Arpeggiator command applies an arpeggio to its input and plays it back in real time. You can make it arpeggiate with a swing feel, or straight and staccato or legato, vary its speed and direction, and specify its range.
Table 143.  
The distortion of timing used to produce a swing feel. A value of 0% indicates a straight rendition; negative and positive values produce distortion of the timing grid. For more information about swing, see Swing.
The smoothness of the notes of the arpeggio. 1 percent plays each notes and releases it instantly. 99 percent plays each note up to the start of the next note.
The direction of the arpeggio. Options are Up, Up (arpeggios go up), Up, Down (arpeggios go up, then down), Down, Down (arpeggios go down), Down, Up (arpeggios go down, then up).
The disposition of the notes you play to specify the arpeggio. Checked plays the original notes. Unchecked filters out the original notes.
The range over which the arpeggio plays. Checked specifies that the arpeggiator repeats notes at each octave over the entire specified range. Unchecked specifies that the arpeggiator includes only the notes you actually play.
The chord you specify. Checked specifies that the arpeggiator infers the chord from the notes played in the range. It identifies the chord in the Chord recognized box and uses it to play arpeggios for notes outside the range.
