Note Patterns determine how the notes are ordered in the Arpeggiator pattern. Clicking on this field reveals the nineteen different Patterns/modes.
- Chord – all the notes held in a chord will be triggered at the same time, based on the velocity value of each Step.
- Up – all the notes held will be played in an ascending arpeggio.
- Down – all the notes held will be played in a descending arpeggio.
- Up/Down – all the notes held will first be played ascending, then descending.
- Up/Down+ – similar to Up/Down, but repeats the highest note and the lowest notes before it reverses direction.
- Down/Up – all the notes held will first be played in a descending arpeggio, then an ascending arpeggio.
- Down/Up+ – similar to Down/Up, but repeats the lowest and highest notes before it reverses direction.
- Random – All the notes held will be played in random order.
- As Played – The notes are played in the order they are triggered.
- Repeat X2 – Every note in the Pattern will be repeated twice, in ascending order.
- Repeat X4 – Every note in the Pattern will be repeated four times, in ascending order.
- Join – Join creates a Pattern which starts with lowest note, then the highest note, alternating progressively inward until they meet in the middle, creating a pattern in a 6-note chord like this: 1-6-2-5-3-4
- Spread – Spread creates a Pattern that is the reverse of Join, creating a pattern which starts in the middle, alternating progressively outward until they reach the outermost notes, creating a pattern in a 6-note chord like this: 3-4-2-5-1-6
- Join/Spread – Join/Spread begins with Join and at the end of the Pattern, continues with the same notes in the Spread pattern.
- Spread/Join – Spread/Join begins with Spread and at the end of the Pattern, continues with the same notes in the Join Pattern.
- Stairs Up – Stairs Up creates a Pattern which, starting with the lowest note, goes two notes up and one note down, continuing the p Pattern ttern upwards.
- Stairs Down – Stairs Down is the reverse of Stairs Up, starting with the highest note.
- Stairs Up/Down – Stairs Up/Down begins with Stairs Up and at the end of the Pattern, reverses direction, using the same notes to play the Stairs Down Pattern.
- Stairs Down/Up – Stairs Down/Up begins with Stairs Down and at the end of the Pattern, reverses direction, using the same notes to play the Stairs Up Pattern.
