Ask.Audio recently reviewed ARPS, featuring it as "a highly polished package of 4x Kontakt 5 arpeggiated, rhythm instruments that sit amazingly in any film-based, TV-based, or even EDM based production."
Writer GW Childs goes on to say, "I do like that Umlaut made each patch a different instrument, as this allows you to have multiple iterations of the patches, or percussive instruments at once. There’s nothing like latching 4 or more arpeggiators at once, and then building around the wall of percussion. And that’s really what ARPS is about - building sick, mind-bending percussion."
" To be honest, this package didn’t really sink in with me, up until this one moment, where I started really playing the Mids instrument/patch along with some other loops I’d made, synced in Ableton Live. Once I heard it in context, I couldn’t stop using it. But you really do need to play it along with other devices to understand what I mean. The patches, even beyond Mids (like Perc and Ticks) are nicely level balanced. And, the effects are seriously dialed in, in such a way that you can make some dramatic adjustments and things still sound polished. Every knob turn offers a lot in terms of variation, but because everything is so nicely balanced, I can see why some big name composers like Tyler Bates, and John Debney would endorse ARPS. "
