Arpeggiator

Using the arpeggiator
The arpeggiator detects the notes being played on the keyboard, and
automatically plays these notes one at a time in a variety of arpeggiated
styles. The R3's arpeggiator provides six arpeggiator patterns, and lets you
adjust the duration (gate time) of the arpeggiated notes. The R3 also allows
you to specify the on/off status of each note in the chord for as many as
eight steps, letting you create an even wider range of arpeggio patterns.
When you play the chord shown above on the keyboard,
the notes will be sounded as shown at the right. (TYPE: UP)
Select a program. (☞p.12)

You can use the arpeggiator with either a synth program or a vocoder
program, but let's select synth program "K–2 ArpPulse" for this

page from the previous step, the PROGRAM NUMBER [1]–[8] but-
tons will act as arpeggiator step on/off buttons, and will be lit (the "on"
state) for the number of valid steps.
By turning a step off (indicated by a blinking button) the correspond-
ing step will change to a rest, and the resulting arpeggio will change
(see the diagram below). The on/off status off each step can be set
individually, allowing even more rhythmic possibilities.
