Re: low cpu midi appegiator
Yes I love arps too.. and I do use them live to an extent...
Currently I only have the DEEP FREQ packaged for the Kore player.. and all the free players , reactor Kontact (thi my lovely wife has bought me Kontakt 4 for christmas - thats for my pre composed "score" music).
The arpy patches within Deep Freq of the various Kore freebies are exactly right for my uses, I want just simple and synchable arpegiators, that DO come before maybe 2 synths so I can send the arp infor generater from my ozone keyboard to 2 places, and the arp itself can make the variations that means that not both synth get all notes.
On my modular synth (Yes it always originates from ideasa I come up with while sitting crosslegged with a heap of wires on my lap) is to simply send high notes to one synth and low notes to another, BUT then of course both can be transposed back up or down... theres probably clever clever ways using CCs pgms and midi channels, but I like the simple approach.
the problem with what Im using now, is that its straight out of the box, I want to construct the sounds themselves and design the arpeggio myself to...
heres the Kore player arp in action on a bell sound during my first improvisation of my new band (hence the rehearsal room sound.. its a rehearsal room... jump into the middle somewhere for the arp)

arpegiators in Bidule (and other hosts) the most stable and least CPU
demanding solutions so far has been to not use an apreggiator that
sends MIDI into a virtual instrument but to use a MIDI instrument with
its own built-in arpeggiator. The two arpy synth plugins I own are
Albino 3 and Alchemy. They both have worked fine for me for driving
their arpeggio patches from a MIDI guitar or EWI playing chords by the
sustain pedal trick. But I'm not finding it stable enough to do live
and I also think it is too much for me to mentally keep track of when
improvising music on the fly. I would probably use arpeggiators more
if I should play a more pre composed music and had a stronger
computer. I love the sound of arping synths, but to really use it
optially I want to instantly sculpt fitler cut-off, attack and release
values as the patterns are pounding and one laptop doesn't seem
powerful enough for that if working with virtual instruments plus
audio in the box.
