The Bitstream 3X arpeggiator is way more than a simple
arpeggiator, it features many rhythms, accents banks, and a lot
of parameters, among which :
(selection of the rhythm model)
(selection of the accent model)
(length of the generated notes)
(Generated phrase ensemble)
(Notes range setting)
All these parameters are accessible either through
the automation dedicated knobs and buttons or by using the menus.
The Bitstream 3X arpeggiator can work in stand alone mode, without
any keyboard or any MIDI sequencer connected to it !
The Bitstream 3X can generate the real time events required for
a rock solid synchronization, and is also able to generate the
notes the arpeggiator needs, so the user just has to turn on the
arpeggiator and the grooves are automatically generated and perfectly
synchronized with your software or synthesizer.
The generated MIDI notes can be sent on the different
MIDI and/or USB outputs, on the channel you choose, so your Bitstream
can integrate any kind of MIDI setup
Real time Grooves
The different grooves can be changed in real time
with dedicated knobs !
On stage for instance, adjusting your rhythm groove generated
by the arpeggiator is simply done by changing the value of a knob
: it's as easy as that !
All the grooves and accents are organized into style banks. With
its 4 banks of 128 accents each, 4 banks of 128 rhythms
each, 128 melodies, and all the other parameters, the possibilities
have virtually no limits !
Easy to use
Using the arpeggiator doesn't require any musical
or MIDI knowledge !
