I was trying out some voices last night (I know, probably should be called a "Performance," but I've been doing this for less than a week at this point). I got to a Fender-Rhodes voice (unfortunately I don't remember specifically which one, but I'm pretty sure it was either Max Tine or one of the Full Tines) and started to play it. Unexpectedly, the notes were repeating.

I figured it must be an arpeggio, and sure enough the ARP ON/OFF button was lit. So I hit the button to turn off the arpeggios and started to play. All of a sudden the arpeggios were back on, and the button had lit back up all by itself. So I hit the button and turned it off again. I played a couple of bars and it turned itself back on again.

I have no idea why it did that. Is this some "auto-arpeggio" feature previously unknown to me? Or have I perhaps run into a bug in the software?

One other question: is there a way to use the touchscreen to turn arpeggios on and off? I've looked around, but have not so far found a touch equivalent to the ARP ON/OFF button.

My Montage is running firmware version 1.10.6.

There is no auto-arpeggio feature that I'm aware of, if you want to report a bug, please include what you have connected, and exactly what you are doing at the time... right now you have a mystery, not a bug. Are you connected to anything external (via USB or MIDI)? you know that kind of thing. Thanks.

From the Performance main screen (touch the HOME icon in the upper left corner of the screen or touch the [PERFORMANCE (HOME)] button
Touch "Motion Control" (arpeggios are part of the Motion Control engine)
Touch "Arpeggio" in the second column

There you will find the ARP ON/OFF Master control.

Thanks for the quick response. That's just what I needed.

I'm embarrassed to say I figured out what my "auto-arpeggio" feature was. I have a foot switch plugged into FOOT SWITCH ASSIGNABLE. I was hitting it without realizing that I was hitting it, and the default action seems to be turning arpeggios on and off. Now I will go and hit my forehead with the heel of my hand and see what that might turn on… :-)
