WMD Arpitecht TRIAD - an explanation

Published on Sep 14, 2018 WMDevices

"The WMD Arpitecht is an arpeggio generator and quantizer module for eurorack modular synthesizers. It is great at creating melodies and rhythmic bass lines for oscillators and synth voices. It has an expansion module called TRIAD which is for creating chords within the modular system.

In this video, Alex quickly runs through our recommended method for sequencing the TRIAD and creating chord progressions. This requires an outside step sequencer that creates static voltages to sequence the TRIAD input and change the chord you'd like to hear.

The short version is, plug in the note outputs into the V/OCT inputs on 3 separate oscillators and turn the TRIAD knob all the way to the LEFT.

Next, Tune your oscillators so they are all the same note as each other. This note should be the ROOT note of your scale set on Arpitecht.

Now, instead of using the TRIAD knob to select the triad you'd like to hear, select step one on your external sequencer and move the CV to select what chord will corellate with that step. Do the same on your following steps until your progression is complete."
