Make a realtime arpegiator

Post by nicouille » Tue Nov 14, 2017 10:07 pm

Hi,

I use sunvox on a raspberry 3 like as synth and i want to make a realtime arpegiator.
I search on youtube but each time it's about a metamodule that use the tracker and so it's not "real time".

So how i can do that, if is possible ?

Thanks a lot, kiss.

SunVox doesn't have the "use the keys you're holding down to form the arpeggiation" style of arpeggiator at the moment (not in the upcoming 1.9.3 either).

However, one thing that SunVox 1.9.3 will have is ability to lock MIDI In channels to modules even when they're not selected. This opens the door to using external arpeggiators much more easily.

Not sure how well it runs on a RPi, but QMidiArp might work for what you want. http://qmidiarp.sourceforge.net/

You would basically route your MIDI controller into QMidiArp, send the output from QMidiArp to SunVox, and configure SunVox to listen to QMidiArp.

It's worth noting you can do this now with 1.9.2, you just have to make sure the module you want to play is selected in order for it to receive external MIDI notes.
