The arpeggiator lets you play intricate patterns of notes that would otherwise be extremely difficult or impossible to play manually and at speeds and octave ranges that exist beyond the physical limitations of the player or keyboard range.Arpeggiated events are new events that are based on notes that you play on your controller keyboard. The new events are rhythmically and harmonically specified by the arpeggiator’s preset, allowing you to “play” an endless variety sophisticated musical passages with simple key pressing.The most significant capability of the arpeggiator is its ability to apply algorithmic variations on your input as well as MIDI-based patterns.In addition to note events, the arpeggiator can send parameter automation such as pan, volume, and even effects automation for the current track.Each MIDI and instrument track has its own integrated arpeggiator, visually located in the Track view. Running multiple arpeggiators across tracks can help realize exciting melodic and rhythmic textures.

Note: Most Arpeggiator parameters can be controlled via MIDI remote control, but automation data can not be recorded into tracks. For details, see To set up remote control for a knob, button, or fader.
