Hi there, I’ve done research on this topic and there’s a lot of information about creating your own arpeggios, but no information on how to listen to the arpeggios that come with the mofx. 

If you look at the data catalog, there are 1000s of arpeggios listed there.  What I’m trying to do is audition them individually to find out stuff I can use.

Unfortunately, this is the part where I haven’t been able to find info.  How can I go through the arpeggio list and audition the different arpeggios in that arpeggio list.  I’m attaching a screen grab of the arpeggio list below. Any info appreciated, thanks.

Here’s one approach you might try…

1) Select a blank/initialized Song
2) Press [MIXING] > [EDIT] > [1] (to edit Part 1)
3) Press [F1]VOICE > [SF1]VOICE
4) Set P.WithVce (Parameter with Voice) on
5) STORE the Song Mixing
6) Press [SONG] (select Song mode - verify the blank Song is selected)
7) Press [ARP ON/OFF] (turn Arps on)
8) Press [ARP EDIT] (enter Arp edit mode)
9) Press [F3]MAIN
10) Set Switch (Arpeggio Switch) on
11) Set Hold (Arpeggio Hold) on
12) Set VoiceWithARP (Voice with Arpeggio) on
13) Press [F2]TYPE
14) Select the Arp you want to audition
15) Press a key or keys
16) Repeat step 14

Step 11 is optional - it determines whether keys need to be held down to hear the entire Arp. Step 12 ensures that a Voice appropriate for the Arp Type is selected - other Voices could be chosen, if desired. Arp looping can be turned on/off via the [F5]PLAY FX Loop setting.

Since I don’t own a MOXF, and my XS and XF screen displays and button selections differ, the above procedure is based on what could be determined from the MOXF Reference Manual. Hopefully it’s accurate, but if any steps don’t seem to work correctly, please post.

Thanks 5pin, I’ll definitely try that.  I’ll let you know if I run into any snags.  I just feel that since somebody took the time to program all those arpeggios, there’s gotta be some gems in there. :)
