Arpeggiator mode in MIDI tracks

What is the problem?

There is currently no Arpeggiator mode on Play.

What do you want to achieve?

An arpeggiator mode would assist the user with creating and recording more melodic lines on the Play, specifically with playing/recording held notes one by one on subsequent steps.

Are there any workarounds?

The user may input notes manually on the steps, but an Arp would allow the user to hold a number of notes down in a selected scale and arpeggiator playback mode and these be recorded in place by Play.

Any links to related discussions?

Any references to other products?

Yes! A powerful Arpeggio function is also on top of my wishlist - with all the great chord features Play already has, this would be awesome to see in a FW upate.


Oh yes please


I just got my Play and I love it. This is so far the only thing Iā€™m really missing. Voted! Would be great to see this in a future FW update!


Was just thinking about this and find myself here after a web search.
I really like the Fill feature and was happy to see some extras in the last firmware (BTW; well worth updating to 1.4.1 as it fixes the hangs with MIDI CC changes).
Hope to see lots more fill options plus some arp goodness.
