I’m trying out the User setting on Arpache 5 and I’m not getting what I expected from the Manual. It says . . .
Each of the 12 slots corresponds to a position in the arpeggio pattern. For each slot, you specify which note should be played on that position by selecting a number. The numbers correspond to the keys you play, counted from the lowest key.
So in this example I set it to User and play a C major chord with 1, 2, and 3 in the first three slots, respectively. So I expect the first note in my pattern to be C, the second one to be E and the third one to be G, and then for that pattern to repeat for the length of the chord. But instead when I play the chord it starts off OK and then becomes random! In fact it’s indistinguishable from the Random pattern setting. (I’m also a little nervous that when “User” is selected the last diagonal line of the Random pattern graphic is still lit up) . . .
This . . .
. . . produces this . . .
…and BTW if I set the pattern to “Up Only”, it does go “up only” but it adds a new C an octave higher that it doesn’t do with my User pattern. Since the Key Range is 12 in both cases why does that one get a bonus note and mine doesn’t? …
…thanks in advance!
