depends what kind of Ctr you’re using...Most of the name are self explanation. Pad for modulation kind, legato for single voice, trill for drum and pick/plug type of voice.

Controller arps are arpeggio that produce no sound. They are controller data. The can be made up of volume data, pan data, filter data, pitch bend data, etc. By themselves these controllers are not notes, they make no sound, however you hear them when they are applied to a sound.

To use an arp in this category you must set the ARP “KEY MODE” parameter to “direct”.

Direct allows the notes that you press on the keyboard to pass through the arpeggiator to the tone generator. The arpeggiator will then apply the Volume, Pan, Filter, Pitch Bend, etc. Controller data to that sound.
Make sense?

From your profile we see you have a Motif ES… you will find the ARP KEY MODE parameter
Press [VOICE]
Press [EDIT]
Press [COMMON]
Press [F3] ARP
Press [SF1] TYPE
Set the KEY MODE to “direct” - instead of sorting notes which is what happens with note arpeggios, the key data will trigger the tone generator, the arpeggio in the CNTR category will now apply the controller data to that sound.

Yes: on pages 170 and 191 of the Owner’s Manual
