Many synthesizers come with built-in arpeggiators, but for those that don’t the ARPIE is just what you need. It comes in a pocket sized package, and runs off a battery or a power supply – and is absolutely packed with features for undulating melodic arpeggios! With a customer base including Jean-Michel Jarre and Vince Clarke, you can be sure the ARPIE is a potent creative force in any electronic studio.
The ARPIE is designed by Jason Hotchkiss, and is so feature rich it has a 40 page manual! You’ll find controls for transposing, pattern, rate, span, velocity, length and various sync modes for external gear. It features both a MIDI in socket, and a MIDI clock in so you can have one source controlling the tempo, and another controlling the arps!
This is the ideal addition to any synth which doesn’t have an Arpeggiator – that includes the mighty DX7, and many of the early FM Synths. Even if your synth does have an arpeggiator, chances are this one has way more options and features!
This ARPIE is sold by midierror, and comes fully constructed and tested. If you prefer a kit version, you will find them here. See what it can do below:
