Can we change Arp notes?

Post by rockman413 » Sun Jul 22, 2018 1:08 pm

Hi there,
So I load a synth rhythmic instrument, it has a seq of notes, cool. I found it has the arp. I can change the arp mode to change the notes orders but can I change the exact notes to be the ones I want? Can I edit the exact notes in the arp?

Not sure, but can't you use a scale MIDI effect (=limited to notes you want)?

You need to output the MIDI notes to a different track : create a new MIDI track (track B) and set the MIDI input from your actual instrument track (track A, where you set you arp plugin), record a new clip in track B while playing the track A clip : you the get all the actual notes. You then need to copy track B clip on track A and disable the arp.

Ideally I would rather create a track A with only the arp, and a track B with the instrument. Set track B MIDI input from track A. Arm track A & B, record MIDI on track B. This way you can monitor and record actual arpeggiated notes on track B and update them as you want.
