I suddenly realised why so many of the TripleOscillator patches have arpeggio
settings. Previously I've thought this a curse and generally ignored them - I
hate knowing I have to change the patch in order for it to make sense in my
composition, even if it's just a simple turn-the-thing-off change. Tonight,
however, I held down my click on the "LFO Party" patch and realised that there
were LFO things going on with the cutoff frequency and resonance - *and* that
the arpeggio demonstrated that as I listened. If I'd just press it for a
short time, I'd hear it at one of the many stages in its progression through
the LFO cycles, and that might have given me the wrong impression about how it
HOWEVER: to me having patches with arpeggio set that are not specifically to
be left with arpeggio on is BAD. Why? Because it gives you no idea how the
note sounds just by itself. If I want to hear a single note go through its
cycles, I can click it repeatedly; if I want to hear a single note from an
arpeggio I have to load it into my song, turn arpeggio off, and then try it.
Does anyone want to have to do this repeatedly? No.
So - it's not a good solution, in my book. I can see why it might make sense,
and I'm willing to thrash it out on email, but I still argue against them at
