Design Unique Arps

  • Design your unique arps with unlimited steps!

    ArpBud 2 has a very easy to use UI that you can start working right away.

    On the top, you have your steps and you can edit each one of your step for the selected mode on the mode section with your step's fader control.

    Work with as many steps as you want! You can copy/paste/delete them by long pressing, toggle them by tapping their LED buttons.

Make Your Arps Even More Interesting

  • ArpBud 2 has several modes that you can work with, for each step.

  • Interval is the note number of the chord you are sending to ArpBud where 1 means the lowest note.

  • You can also set velocity, octave, gate, ratchet and play-probability values for your steps.

  • ArpBud 2 has a very unique randomizer which you can customise as you want in the settings menu.

Create Unlimited Patterns

  • In every ArpBud 2 project, you can work with unlimited numbers of patterns.

    You can change the patterns on the fly while ArpBud 2 is running which makes it a very nice live-performance tool!

    Patterns also could be change with MIDI Control Change (CC) messages. You can assign a MIDI CC number for "Pattern Change Control" and then send a pattern number to that channel.

    You can create interesting automatizations with that feature - like a song mode!

Pitch sequencer.
