New to AutoTheory Pro is our unparalleled Arpeggiator mapping. This patented function allows users to freely choose the starting tone and arp direction in real time from the Melody Lock, resulting in a limitless amount of arp combinations.
How it works: With the selection of a chord from the chord generator, the Melody Lock will shift the seven scale tones, placing the chord tones in the 1, 3, 5 and 7 positions. When you select the chord tone positions, the arpeggiation will move upwards, starting at the chord tone that you selected. When you select the tones in between (2, 4, 6 and 7b), the arpeggiation will start on the preceding chord tone and move in a downwards position.
Or to put it simply: Push different Melody Lock keys. Each key selection will be a different way of arpeggiating the same chord.
