Listen to MUSIC MADE WITH ARPS

LISTEN TO PRESETS

ARPEGGIATED SAMPLES AT YOUR FINGERTIPS

Permutations & Combinations. TheY lie at the very heart of the sounds that ARPS can create. Coupled with the Effects at your disposal, the POSSIBILITIES ARE LIMITLESS.

KICK ARPS

Patterns created with combinations of various kick sounds are perfect to add that low end driving force to your tracks. Or you can filter them out to achieve a sound of your own.

MID ARPS

With MIDS, a variety of Mid-range percussive sounds are mixed and matched to form intricate, absorbing rhythms with minimal effort.

TICK ARPS

TICKS elevates the concept of a high-mid range ticker element to perfection, using a mixture of ticker sounds as a starting point to fully utilise the possibilites of the sample arpeggiator.

PERC ARPS

Using Percussive sounds from hand-played percussion, PERCS excels at adding a striking touch of ethnicity to an otherwise electronic percussion backbeat.

SPONTANEOUS CREATION. SIMPLIFIED.

ARPS STAYS TRUE TO ITS SIMPLE ROOTS. IN ESSENCE, IT IS AN ARPEGGIATOR FOR SAMPLES, BUT THAT'S JUST THE BEGINNING.

INSTRUMENTS

The ARPS Instrument package comes with 4 individual instruments - KICKS, MIDS, PERCS and TICKS. Each of these contain a full range of unique samples unified by category, and share the same arpeggiator functions and Effect Controls.

The overall footprint on your RAM for each instrument is really small, so you can easily combine multiple instances of each of the ARPS instruments to dish out exciting rhythms in no time.

GUI

ARPEGGIATOR

This is where the ARPS magic happens. Hold down any number of notes on the keyboard, set the Arpeggiator to latch, and you're ready to get ARPSolutely delighted.

The arpeggiator consists of basic controls such as latch, steps, rate, release, swing, octave, repeat and playback modes with a step sequencer for Volume. Tweaking any of these parameters on the fly can result in dramatically different, interesting and useful results.

GUI

FX SECTION

The Effects section within ARPS is constructed to help you transmit extra processing to your rhythmic patterns. There are a total of 7 Effects with a limited set of parameters per effect to keep things simple, yet powerful.

UNIFIED DESIGN LANGUAGE

All of Umlaut Audio’s instruments are designed with a consistent design language in mind. For instance, the FX Icons are abstractions helping you visualise the effect, one of the many unique design touches we add to our instruments. 

We’ve created an entire family of instruments with ARPS, PADS, uBEAT.  Read more about our design philosophy here.

DESIGN PHILOSOPHY

NKS INTEGRATION

All of our flagship instruments are designed to take full advantage of the NATIVE KONTROL STANDARD.

NKS allows you to use ARPS like any other Native Instruments library, accessing snapshots, integrating with NI Hardware and most importantly, automatically setting up the most optimum mappings on Komplete Kontrol devices for you to dive right in to your creative flow. Learn more about NKS here

MADE FOR KONTAKT PLAYER

We've partnered with Native Instruments to allow our engines to be fully compatible with KONTAKT 5 PLAYER. This means that you do not need the full version of KONTAKT 5 to be able to use PADS.

The Kontakt Free Player is a great way to give PADS a spin.
