Which notes you play and the order you play them can drastically change the arp output. With those arps, you can play them like an instrument, not just a steady repeating pattern.
Oh I see what you mean now, so the pattern does not retrigger for each note you play, meaning you could delay the start of one note and it would play the pattern but it would play delayed from the other allready playing, creating polyrhytmic arps.
That would be nice, I create these kinds of arps using Sonars step sequencer, I'll play the bass notes of the arp first using a pattern of 16ths going say 1011, then overdub the 2nd and 3rd notes using another pattern that runs offbeat to the bass pattern to create those kind of arps, would be nice having realtime control.
I'll have to check out the Z1, Zebra2 doesn't run on PC, know of any pc vstis that has this feature?
