Arp: Toggles arpeggiation for each instrument slot.
Access this function via the Arp button on the Live Block or within the Instrument View of NOISE.
A variety of patterns, gates, times, and pitch ranges are available.
Gate controls what percentage of each note value is heard and how much is silent. For example, if Gate is set to 80%, 80% of each note sounds, and 20% is silent.
Time controls the duration of each note, so "1/16" means that each note will be a sixteenth-note, or one quarter of a beat. d means dotted, so “1/4d” refers to a dotted quarter-note, or one and a half beats. t means triplet, so “1/4t” refers to a quarter-note triplet, or two-thirds of a beat.
Octave controls the range in octaves over which the notes are arpeggiated.
Chord: Play entire chords with one finger or Pad (single square in the grid layout of the Lightpad Block). *
Access this function via the Chord button on the Live Block or within the Instrument View of NOISE.
* You will not be able to play Chords with Lead sounds – click here for more details.
14 different chords are available and can be toggled ON or OFF.
Scale: Determine the Key and Scale for all NOISE's instruments
Select the Key and Scale by pressing the Scale button on the Live Block or within the Instrument View of NOISE.
There are 19 different scales and modes to choose from in each key, and by selecting a different key you may transpose NOISE instruments to any key.
You can also adjust the grid display in the Instrument View and on your Lightpad Block:
With 'Hide notes' off, the Pads for pitches outside of the selected scale are blacked out.
With 'Hide notes' on, these Pads are omitted, meaning that you won't have to worry about playing a wrong note.
