Arpeggiator

An arpeggiator generally speaking, is a feature that automatically steps through a sequence of notes based on an input chord, thus creating an arpeggio.

The arpeggiator of the Hypertron is in symbiosis with the classical note repeat function and can be used for both samples and generated signals by the internal synthesizer of the Hypertron. Especially the latter in combination with the arpeggiator is where the app really shines.

You can access the arpeggiator options on top of the keys inside the keyboard view:



Mode
Each track has three different arpeggiator modes:

1. NR (Default)
Note repeat. Synced to the beat. If your track already has a recorded pattern, it will change the rythm of that pattern but not influence its pitch.

2. ARP
Synced to the beat. Notes are always on hold. Existing patterns will not be played / will be overwritten.

3. LIVE
Not synced to the beat. This mode will restart the arpeggiator everytime you press a key or lay down your chord on the keyboard. Existing patterns will be played between arpeggiator steps.
In this mode, the sequence of your notes will run fluently across groups but being reset everytime you stop the Hypertron.



Octaves
This drop-down button lets you choose the octave range of the Arpeggiator. Maximum value is 4 octaves.



Direction
The arpeggiator of the Hypertron offers four different directions:

1. Up
2. Down
3. Up & Down
4. Random ( is randomly picking a note from the sequence while taking the octave range into account  )

Important note
  • The octaves and direction settings are only active in either ARP or LIVE mode.
  • Automatically switches to ARP mode if current mode is NR and key gets pressed.
  • The mode which you have selected will also be shown in the main view of the Hypertron
