    cabling for arpeggiator

    I have looked through the articles in the thread labeled arpeggiator and although vary informative I have a specific question I hope someone can help me with. I would like to cable a connection which would run the signal through the chord memorizer (recording the chords onto one track) then run a line from the chord memorizer output into the arpeggiator which would record individual (staircase) notes on another track simultaneously.

    Just did up a little example to demonstrate it. There are two possible scenarios. Neither will allow for recording the two processes discreetly to two separate tracks. I think the second scenario here might serve you better.

    Here are the steps for the first version:

    * Create and set up your chord memorizer and your arpeggiator objects in the Clicks and Ports layer of the Environment.

    * Cable the Sum output of the Physical Input object into the Chord Memorizer.

    * Cable the output of the chord memorizer into the arpeggiator.

    * Option click on the output node of the arpeggiator and connect it to the instrument you want arpeggitaed after the chord harmonization.

    * Option click on the second output node of the chord memorizer and cable it to the instrument you want capturing the chords only.

    * Note: Logic's transport must be in either play or record for the arpeggiator to work.

    * This will work in playback mode only. AFAIK, iIt isn't possible to record the two different processes to the two different tracks simultaneously.

    Scenario 2:

    * Create those same chord memorizer and arpeggiator objects in the regular Mixer layer of the Environment. Leave the Clicks and Ports as is.

    * Cable the output of the chord memorizer into the instrument you want playing the chords only.

    * Cable the second output of the chord memorizer into the arpeggiator.

    * Cable the output of the arpeggiator into the instrument you want playing the broken up chords.

    * Create a track in the Arrange Window with the chord memorizer as the track object.

    * Play and record on this track. When the transport is in Play or Record mode it will execute what you want faithfully. But it will only record a single region containing the trigger notes. Although it will play back faithfully.

    Beyond this, my brain starts to hurt :))
