Description: Video:

ArpKrafter is similar to Live's arpeggiator device but with customisable style patterns. This device allows for the input of chords with up to 8 midi notes. The notes are arpeggiated according to the steps of the grid pattern.

The number of grid steps and note length are adjustable. Notes can be straight, dotted or triplets and are quantized with the sync note rate or free time setting.

Does what it says on the tin ? an elegant, direct way to get more control over which notes are triggered during held arp chords without the bog-you-down of a full-on note sequencer.

I'm really enjoying this, and emailed some feature suggestions!

Love this. Simple and fun to experiment with

Really nice device. shame it doesnt utilise live.banks for the push, but its easy enough to add yourself

Ooh, I'd love Push integration. How would one do that ScruffyFox?

@cparadisi simply open the patch and add a "live.banks" object, then ctrl+click it to open the window. from there you can add various parameters.

What I ended up doing was adding one live.dial for each step which when changed will bang into a pak object and then that's patched to the live.grid

I have a custom modified version of this but because it's a commercial patch, so I won't upload it anywhere but if you want you can email me and ill send you the modification piece - sans the rest of the patch

I decided to write up a tutorial on how to modify patches to add Push support, and used this device as an example:

Hope that helps

Thanks. I haven't done any M4L coding at this point, but now is a good a time as any to start.

I appreciate you taking the time to post that tutorial. I'll definitely give it a go.

This is great ScruffyFox! I've learnt everything about M4L and coding in general from tutorials like this so I'm chuffed you used my device :)

@JimmyBollox Any word on future updates? :)
