Madrone Music Intros SyncArp Hardware MIDI Arpeggiator

Madrone Music has launched a Kickstarter project to fund production of the SyncArp MIDI Arpeggiator.

The Syncarp is a dedicated arpeggiator that offers real-time control over multiple parameters. The SyncArp will break up to 10 simultaneously played notes into an arpeggio. You can hold arpeggiated chords, add notes to them in real time, and transpose them.

The SyncArp can sync to an external MIDI clock signal, through either of its MIDI-in ports, or it can provide an internal clock.

The SyncArp has six dedicated knobs that provide real time control over:

  • Tempo (clock division while clocked externally)
  • Swing
  • Length (gate)
  • Octave
  • Direction
  • 32 unique Patterns

Here’s a playlist of official demos:

Pricing and Availability

Production of the SyncArp is being funded via a Kickstarter project and it is available to backers for $198 USD.

Note that crowdfunded projects involve risk – see details at the project site

  1. It’s nice that these are under knob control but this is a bit tame as arpeggiators go, eg no variations in note length, uniform direction, rest/skip patterns. But this is something that’s hard to do well without collapsing into menu-diving.

  2. Shouldn´t be a lot of codelines with an arduino. Also many Controller AND Synths have already built in Arp´s and sequencers. So I don´t really get the point on this one?!
