Using the Pattern Player

The pattern player plays the notes that make up the chord one after another (arpeggio).


  1. Select Show/Hide Settings > Players > Pattern.
  2. Perform one of the following actions:
    • Click Import MIDI Loop to select a MIDI loop that you want to use as a pattern.

    • Drag a MIDI part from the event display to the Drop MIDI Part field.


    The loop or part must have between 3 and 5 voices. In the MediaBay, the number of voices is indicated in the Voices column of the result list.

    The loop or part is taken as a reference and defines how the chord is played. The Drop MIDI Part field displays the name of the selected loop or part.

  3. In the Velocity from: field, select a velocity source for the notes.
    • Activate MIDI Keyboard to determine the velocity values by pressing the keys on your MIDI keyboard harder or softer.

    • Activate Pattern to use the velocity values from the MIDI loop or the MIDI part that is selected as a pattern.

After Completing This Task

If you have a pattern that you want to use in other projects, you can save it using the presets section in the pattern player.
