Some Motifator members have noted that loading new User Arps overwrites previous ones. It can sometimes be convenient to combine two or more Arp files into one, so that all of the Arps are available simultaneously. Although commercial software is available to do that and more, the purchase might not always be merited.

I’ve created a Windows program, Arps-Plus, that can combine two XS or XF Arp files, or one of each, into one Arp file. The Arps can also be extracted from “All” files. See the attached Readme file for installation and other details.

Also attached are XSpand_Arps.X0G (Arps from XSpand Your World) and EDMEXP_Arps.X3G (Arps from EDM Expansion). They can be copied to the folder where Arps-Plus is located, and experimented with.

Before using Arps-Plus, please save your current data to an “All” file. That way you can load files produced by Arps-Plus, but return to your own data if/when needed.

I hope you find Arps-Plus useful. The program has been run on a few systems and seems to be working well, but I’d appreciate reports of any difficulties with it.

I found a very minor bug in version 1.00. It’s been corrected in the updated version 1.01 files. Please see my November 2018 post on page 3 of the thread linked above:
http://www.motifator.com/index.php/forum/viewthread/477143/P41/

By the way, Arps-Plus can be used to extract and convert Arps in XF files (X3A/X3G) to X0G ones loadable to the XS. Just choose the X3A/X3G as the first file, and Arps+_One-Note.X3G (supplied with the Arps-Plus downloads) as the second. Select file type “For XS”, and the resulting Arp file will have all the XF Arps, plus one additional at the end which can be ignored.

Thanks it’s a great tool! One more question concerning the number of user arps that fit into 1 file … When you combine the user arps of 3 voice sets, it’s too big for 1 file (just 256). From each user arp file I just need like 10-20 arp patterns … but how can I combine these selections?

The Arp Manager (motifator shop) seems only to work with arp files of the motif ES not the XS …

When a soundbank with user arps is loaded, is it possible to ‘delete’ user arps that you don’t need in the combinated user arp file?

Kind regards, Michiel

When I need just 3 or 4 user arps from a voice set, maybe I can ‘isolate’ the arps in pattern mode … ? (workaround but didn’t get my head around it yet …)

I stored a performance in pattern mode and added the pattern (from a saved all patterns file) to my favorite setup.
In pattern mode it works fine. Then I saved the track to (user) arp. But this user arp won’t work in voice mode.
It is a drum/ percussion voice that is in the user voice bank (not user drum bank) so maybe it has to do with the nature of the arp? (kind of a percussion kit with phrases....)...?

You’re welcome.

Arps-Plus wasn’t designed to edit which Arps from a library will be merged - it combines all of them from the selected files. The limit of 256 is the maximum number of User Arp locations in the Motif.

As I mentioned in my first post of this thread, there is commercial software that will do more. For your purposes, you might consider purchasing the Motif Waveform Editor from John Melas. It will allow you to rearrange Arps and delete unwanted ones.

Thanks for the advise mr 5pinDIN, I’ll consider the commercial program. But since my problem concerns just a couple of arp patterns, I’ll try using the pattern mode in combination with the ‘put track to arp’ tool fist. My idea is:
- record a pattern with the 1 user arp
- save ‘all pattern’
- load my main file with favorite voices, performances, midi files et cetera (all file)
- load the 1 pattern from the all pattern file saved
- select the track with the 1 user arp and use ‘put track to voice’ trick
- save ‘all arpeggio file’ and ‘all’ file.

I think this must work too (bit elaborate through...) ...?
