Converting a midi track that uses the track's midi arpeggiator

Recommended Posts

Almost ran out of room in the Title ...

1) so I have a midi track, playing a 2 measure (bass) note

2) In the arpeggiator that appears in the inspector, I have turned on the arpeggiator and chosen a preset from the "load preset" dropdown

3) the track plays beautifully through a vsti, did I mention that I am a crappy bass player

4) my question is: since I want to make edits, how the heck do I capture the output in midi?

There seems to be no way, but I'm hoping one of you folks be smarter than I. And has a better vocab.

Thanks,

Timbo

I have never done this with the Inspector-based Arpeggiator. (I have done it with hardware.)  It looks like it might be possible.   If no one chimes in and says how to do it, I am going to try the methods listed here--on line documentation.

Update: Nothing on that page allowed me to record the midi output of the arpeggiator.  Maybe someone else has been able to do it.

Update 2: Not sure this is the best way to do it, but in a simple test of a single arpeggiated note I recorded the arp pattern as audio, then exported it, then imported it to a midi track and let Cakewalk do its audio conversion to midi.

I hope there's a better, more efficient way to record patterns as midi data.

Thanks for trying, 7 of 9

It wasn't clear that update 2 worked or not - I assume it did. It was my plan B but ...

Sorry I didn't make that clear--yes it worked. I also tried it again with a test audio arp track that did a few weeks ago.  It took a while because it was much longer, but the audio to midi conversion seemed to work.  If you are doing small sections at a time, it should be quicker.

There's a MFX Arpeggiator, too, but I didn't try that.

Not sure if there's anything helpful here:

I have done this with the MFX arp in a MIDI track.
I applied trim to the track. Or was it bounce to track(S)? It was a long time ago. 😀

I just right-clicked to clip and selected "Bounce to clips". voila

Correct answer.,Bounce to clips will render the midi notes from the built in Arpeggiator into individual midi notes that you can then edit as normal

Thanks for the thread.  I  was really scratching my head about this. I tried all kinds of routing. External arps record perfectly but the internal one doesn't. ounce to clip is so simple but so not intuitive.  Thanks to the forum, and I think the manual needs a real overhaul
