When you get the hang of it, press fn and arp and prepare yourself for a whole new world of fun


#25

Hm yes I have explored arp setup a bit, but I really really want to fully understand it I guess. I don’t understand the designers intention I suppose


#26

Thank you gentlemen


#27

Yeah, Elektron boxes are a bit daunting at first. I freaked out a few times before I got the hang of it. When I discovered what a p lock was I got so overwhelmed by all the possibilities that I stared at the synth from the other end of the room.

Elektron sells two main things with their machines: a focus on sound design and a workflow. A bit of a learning curve to get in the flow, but once you’re in it it becomes a preferred method, I feel

That’s how I felt about trig conditions ha! Also that “entering all four notes at once” thing must be new because it didn’t work like that before I updated it :confused:


#29

Ha! Yeah, I can’t figure out an ideal way to use trig conditions on the A4. The Rytm it’s great though.

When I get a spare moment I want to make an entire song where every trig is set at 50% and just have chance bang it out

I’m trying to do a long arpeggiation throughout a track. I can do a hold, but it’s hard to get things in time with the sequencer that way — and I can’t figure out how to sequence this arp riff so that it plays continuously and smooth throughout, while in time with the other sequenced tracks. I’m hitting a brick wall — any help would be awesome and I will sing your praises to people you don’t know!

see above and elsewhere too - Arpeggiator

most questions have already been answered, best to develop ideas in existing threads where lots of users are already posting/notified

Hold Trig in step mode then dial in or play chord

On a techno dub track I already used trig conditions on the chords track… Some set with slow attack, other a bit like retrigs and linked together with PRE…
Very interesting !

Now I wish this had been recorded :slight_smile:


#33

You might want to program this rather than play this…
Consider setting the trigs when the ARP must change.
Then hold trig and enter your chord.
Set hold to max…


#34

Thanks! I’ll try that! I haven’t actually been trying to tap into any genre, but I DO want to experiment with making some dub


#35

Thanks for the tip. Question: So when I repeat this for all four tracks (3 notes each), I am able to play all the Arps at once (awesome) - So I’m guessing that even though I have three notes triggered inf on each track(on first trig), ultimately there is only 4 notes being sounded simultaneously and therefore all four Arps can trig at once, correct?


#36

Yep, indeed
