Any virtual instrument you are controlling with the Oxygen 61 MKV will be affected by the arpeggiator, offering a new world of options. When the arpeggiator is activated, the keyboard will repeatedly play the keys that are pressed in the selected sequence of your choosing. Customise the timing and rhythm in your keyboard settings or your DAW for precise control to ensure your arpeggiator never misses a beat. Operating in both latching and momentary mode, the arpeggiator further utilises creative parameters such as octave, type and swing to fine-tune your melodies and their groove to your music.
