Arpeggiator settings

The arpeggiator is a function that automatically
generates arpeggios (playing the notes of the
chord individually, with a constant tempo). Most
arpeggiators produce an arpeggio when you play
a chord on the keyboard.
The chord you play on
the keyboard is sounded
as an arpeggio
(individual notes)
In addition to this, the X50's arpeggiator is a poly-
phonic arpeggiator that is able to produce a vari-
ety of chordal transformations or phrases based on
the pitch or timing of the notes you play on the
keyboard. These functions let you use the arpeg-
giator to play a wide range of patterns including
drum or bass phrases, and guitar or keyboard
backing riffs. It is also effective to use the arpeg-
giator as part of the sound-creating process when
creating subtly-moving pads, synth-sounds, or
sound effects.
In Program mode you can use one arpeggiator.
In Combination mode and Multi mode, the X50
features a Dual Polyphonic Arpeggiator that lets
you simultaneously use two arpeggio patterns.
You can take advantage of this in many ways,
such as applying separate arpeggio patterns to a
drum program and a bass program, or using key-
board zones or velocity splits to switch between
two arpeggio patterns.
