Many hardware synths include arpeggiators. An arpeggiator receives incoming MIDI notes, and outputs a sequenced pattern of notes based on a defined set of rules (such as arpeggios). Similar in concept to a step sequencer, an arpeggiator has a number of differences that set it apart. Like a step sequencer, an arpeggiator allows you to create a pattern, but it also interacts directly with the chords and intervals that you play from the keyboard.

Omnisphere’s ARPEGGIATOR has multiple Note Patterns, Play Modes, Functions, Latch, Step Modifiers, Trigger Types, Clock Rates, a variable-length 32-step Pattern Programmer, Factory and User Presets, and a super-useful MIDI Capture feature.

Omnisphere’s ARPEGGIATOR also features the innovative Groove Lock feature that synchronizes the ARPEGGIATOR with Stylus RMX grooves (or any standard MIDI file).

Each Part in Omnisphere can have its own ARPEGGIATOR, each with its own unique pattern settings. This means that up to eight arpeggiators can be running simultaneously, which is especially powerful when using STACK and LIVE Modes.

There are many presets available to help get you started exploring the ARPEGGIATOR’s capabilities. Select different presets to hear the kinds of patterns that can be created. Patterns that you create or modify can be saved as presets for later use.
