    I’ve found Rozeta AUv3 to be quite good with Obsidian.

    +1 on Rozeta. I tried Ioniarics and it doesn't seem to work as a standard up/down arp, or play all the notes, for some reason, but it's worth keeping an eye on if the dev can fix these. It looks like it should do these, but didn't for me.

    I used to feel the same way about having an Obsidian-native arpeggiator. Now I think I'd rather have the ability to bring up MIDI AUs as a new tab directly on Obsidian's PERFORM screen. They'd work like audio inserts so the OBS keyboard's output would be sent to the MIDI AU(s) and the MIDI AU's output would be sent to the synth engine.

    Same for Slate to do things like load a MIDI drum machine AU, etc.

    Can all be done now so not a big deal but having it all inline within the instrument UIs would be dreamy for me.

    Wowww, this app is GOLD.

    I also would love an own arp inside NS2 as midi FX. So far there is no really good arp in iOS for live playing. I like the one in ThumbJam due to its great performance touch keys but otherwise i really would love like Logic´s intern arp. Great GUI and so versatile and easy to use. Maybe i missed something? I also like to use arps as part of a preset. You also can get really great pads, soundscapes and textures with slower envelopes and fast arps. Did i say that i freaking love arps. I like to create 10+ layered arps as polyrhythmic performance patch f.e.

  • Most definitely!

    Not familiar with Logic's arp (even though I own logic!). Would you describe what's better for you about it than say Rozeta's Arp?

    Totally. I know that saving and recalling a mixer channel (which might be a parent channel with several child channels) is on the proverbial TODO list but not sure the priority/possibility. This is a beautiful additional use case.

    Logic arp for me is just the best for live input and the GUI is just on top for me as well. Strange that it almost looks like the perfect for touch screens as well for me. I know that other arps offer more fancy options but i almost tested all with my favorite instruments from mac to iOS and vice versa or a combination of both but at the end the stock in Logic is the best for me.
    Perfect combo of super fluid GUI and workflow, the right feature set and it is fast and easy to set up.
    I like to use randomizations and stuff and i also like the easy one klick modulation of all automation parameters so it is always just 1 (or 2) clicks away to modulate most parameters/knobs from the arp and all can be saved as performance patch.
    On iOS there are a lot super great step sequencers but not really much good arps for live input usage without a ton of programming.
    Hard to explain. I might post an example where of course the source sound plays a big part but i could not get this results with all my other arps (only maybe Chthulhu from Xfer but it is a bit buggy).
    As little example maybe (i hope it´s o.k. to post since i more like to show with audio instead of words).
    So everything you hear here (beside on violin layer) are just held chords with the Logic arps (several layers). All midi notes are just mainly 3-4 note chords with a fixed velocity (actually all played live on just my computer keyboard as midi input).
    Uupss, sorry that was the wrong track.....here is one and it is 100% arps only indeed :) And just 3 tracks

    But Drumbo might be the new midi king for me soon (even might be my new favorite modular drum/synth and FX also, Drumbo is a real game changer in any way).

  • @Cinebient Thanks for the breakdown. Got me to googling... Indeed, looks like the ratio between simplicity and power is pretty golden! https://www.soundonsound.com/techniques/arp-nouveau Looks like I need to boot up Logic again... :)

    I use FM player 2 for some simple arps but it's more like a compromise than a good solution.
    will take a look at Rozeta, tho ;)

    I really like the ARP found in JimAudio Groove Box. It works in conjunction with the XY pad for dynamic scale/pattern changes.

    It would be a dream come true inside of Obsidian!

    Please think about implementing it inside of NS2.
    Thanks in advance.
