I understand there are four tracks within the arp to work with. Trying to figure out the possible ways to fill these four arp tracks? Specifically, is there a way to have the arpeggiator voice more than one backing part if I put it within a layered four part performance? I am thinking that I can record phrases at different places on the keyboard using two to four different voices, then create a user arp, then put this user arp to a performance assigning keyboard voicing and splits matching the arp...Possible / impossible? I got the idea trying to learn more about the comb, arp category. In the ES manual, it says; .
The Arpeggio types belonging to the category “Comb” are programmed so that different arpeggios are triggered — an arpeggio
for a Normal Voice and an arpeggio for a Drum Voice — depending on the played note. These types are useful in the
Performance mode in which multiple voices (Drum Voice and Normal Voice) are combined in a layer since these types enable
you trigger the arpeggio for the Normal Voice and the Drum Voice at the same time.
I found only a handful of these category arps in the data list, five to be exact, Couldn't find much else written about it. I know the ES arpeggiator is supposed to be limited to one arp at a time; but, is this comb category a creative way to run two arp note patterns at once when working in performance mode? Can it then be used to allow my left hand to trigger, as the manual says, both a normal voice and a drum voice arp at the same time? Could you explain how this works? Is there a different arp pattern assigned per layered voice or range of notes? Is this an option for my left hand to trigger some combination of drums with either a bass line or rhythmic chord? Manual doesn't say what voices the five preset comp arps are designed to be used with. I experimented with the five preset comb arps but don't know what voices to assign to hear the drum vs normal voice note arp patterns. Can I create my own user comb arps? Thank in advance Phil !!!
