Erased Notes
2 ratings

Synth Matrix is a feature-rich polyphonic arpeggiator, inspired by Ólafur Arnalds' Stratus Pianos.

What is a Polyphonic Arpeggiator?

A poly arp has multiple arpeggiator "voices". In a normal arpeggiator, all incoming notes are treated together and a pattern is generated using their combination. In contrast, a polyphonic arpeggiator treats each incoming note separately and generates different rhythmic sequences for each note.

What does it Sound Like?

The sound of the Synth Matrix will vary drastically depending on the patterns you draw and the instruments you use. It works well with everything from pianos to synths. Best results are obtained with velocity-sensitive instruments.

The music from the preview above shows an example of its use with various sounds. The Piano, EP, Guitars, Synth Keys, and Bass in this track use the default presets of Synth Matrix and Bass Matrix.

Demo Tracks

Home - Listen for the arpeggiated pianos throughout this first piece. It uses the Ghost Pianos rack, basically two stereo-panned Synth Matrix instances. (This configuration is included in the demo project.)

Running - The synth "melodies" have been generated feeding the MIDI output of the synth matrix to a monophonic lead! It is also used throughout the song with different synths, pianos in the background.
