What a cool idea! Can't wait to give this a try. ?

In making this small device, I realized the difficulty of MIDI devices which closely depend on the following MIDI instruments' behaviors.
Any suggestion and feature requests is welcome!

@broah Thank you for a comment! ..and sorry for late responce.

Hi! This is a great device for chiptune arpeggios!

Unfortunately, I run into troubles right away. I tried to use the device before the default arpeggiator, but somehow the device state does not reset when i let go of the piano keys. I.e, on the first played chord it works as expected, but in the next chord there are strange jumpy pauses between the chord sequences (i.e., if i play C major, it's C-E-G - pause - C-E-G - pause etc), but after a few pauses it starts working again like in the first time. It kinda sounds like an old car engine that first coughs for a bit and then starts running.

If i press the "reset" button on the device, it works again, but for the first chord only.

(ableton live 10, win 10)

Thank you for the feedback and sorry for inconveniences...
Repeating the echo should be stopped when the device received note-on of the same note, however, it is not seemed to work well.
For now, it prevents the issue to shorten the echo length not to overlap with next note-on, or press the reset button.

It might be considered to change whole patch, but I will get into it.
Glad to know that you spot the benefit of the device for chiptune!

Thanks to borb's contributions, the device has been polished to version 1.0.0.
And I have a plan for another arpeggio chord method...

Handy little thing.

Great idea!
