Arp chromatic or in scale?

Hi all,

I’m wondering if anybody can confirm whether DN’s arpeggiator is always chromatic or if it can be synched to the track’s scale settings. I’m thinking in terms of interwals between notes.

Thanks

As I can see - its chromatic, it would be great if it could be quantized to scale.

Do you have a Digitone? It should be very easy to confirm one way or the other.

It is chromatic - despite the manual saying otherwise, it does not quantized to track scale and key. Really disappointed me when I got mine - should really be a selectable toggle on the arp page :confused:

Yes, I have a DN. However, since I’m not quite savvy in music theory, I figured I’ll ask around in here. Thanks for your reply.

Yah, it’s all over the Feature Request thread.

The usual way around is to have different arp version of the sound for different notes (for example minor chord arpeggio version for I,IV,V and major arpeggios for the III,VI and VII and soundlock them. which is kinda tedious.

If you have a scale set it will only play notes from the scale.
Also with chord mode on it will only play the notes of the chord.
And those notes will be diatonic to the scale…

The offsets are chromatic though…
I’m assuming that’s what u are asking

Yes, I was referring to the fact that the Arp offsets are causing DN to play notes outside a via DN’s scale menu chosen scale.
If that makes any sense :blush:

I’ve created some really nice melodies with the OT arp recently
and the offsets do go to scale on that…
I find it difficult to use the offsets on the digitone in a musical way as figuring out which step of the arp is to be offset is a bit confusing and can just sound… well out…
If it was all to a scale you can just be random and come up with good results…
Don’t understand why wasn’t done in the same way and the A4 also

Well, I discovered what’s been bugging me with the arp all along - this, heh
