The Next Evolution in Step Sequencing!

For some virtual instruments, the arpeggiator or step sequencer is just another feature, but for Sample Logic Arpology, it's the very foundation your sound is built on. If you're looking for a fun way to create exciting and inspiring sounds that move and evolve, then Arpology should be the next virtual instrument synth on your wish list. Its Step Animator combines the rhythmical flow of a traditional arpeggiator with the powerful slice-by-slice modulation of a step sequencer and adds a ton of extra flexibility into the mix. Top it off with over 550 awesome sounds, over 150 Step Animator presets, and TouchOSC integration, and you could lose yourself for weeks just exploring the possibilities of Sample Logic Arpology.

Sample Logic Arpology Virtual Instrument Synthesizer at a Glance:
  • Totally packed with awesome instrument sounds
  • Step Animator takes arpeggiation to the next level
  • TouchOSC integration provides hands-on tablet control
Totally packed with awesome instrument sounds

No amount of arpeggiation or step sequencing is cool enough to survive bad sounds, so let's start with Arpology's sound library. Onboard, you'll find over 200GB of the same awesome sounds that have already put Sample Logic on the map, including everything from mundane choirs, brass, strings, and other acoustic instruments, to crazy synths and killer sound effects. Many of us at Sweetwater have used these sounds extensively in our own projects, but nothing unlocks their full potential like Arpology.

Step Animator takes arpeggiation to the next level

For as intensely powerful as Arpology's step sequencer is, we were totally blown away by how intuitive and uncomplicated it is to use. They call this arpeggiator/sequencer the Step Animator, because it lets you dramatically alter your sound from step to step in a way no ordinary modulation source can. Each step can contain custom note value, duration, velocity, and other basic information, as well as advanced parameters such as stutter, keyswitch, and even arpeggiation style. What's more, you can drag and drop the sequenced MIDI to any track in your DAW, allowing you to use Arpology as a MIDI effect. From surgically precise evolving sounds, to pure random chaos and everything in between, Arpology lets you get as creative with your sounds as your music demands.

TouchOSC integration provides hands-on tablet control

At Sweetwater, we've used Robert FISCHER's TouchOSC for everything from Ableton Live to Native Instruments' Reactor. It's multitouch capabilities let you do so much more on-the-fly manipulation than you could ever accomplish with a mouse alone. That's why we were so excited to see that Sample Logic had come up with a cool TouchOSC preset for Arpology. Using TouchOSC, you can manipulate Arpology via four X-Y zones at once, warping your sound in wild and inspiring ways. So, if you have an iPad or Android tablet, you'll all set to get even more out of Sample Logic Arpology.

Note mangler/placer I have been dreaming of forever...

Watch the youtube vids on this AMAZING product! The way you can quickly break down, tweak and twist notes is like no other, period. Plus the sound library is high quality pulled from other products at Sample Logic. I know, the price makes me cringe also but I went for it and have NO regrets. The stutter options are just crazy awesome. Why are all sequencers not created in this manner? It seems needed, not wanted. So please do not buy this!! : ) I want to be one of the few that have it, cause I already feel ahead in the creation game we are all chasing. Enjoy this great new tech!

ARPOLOGY takes music software to an entirely new level. It's creative and, most importantly, musical. Depending on the genre a song can literally write itself. And the deeper you dig and the more you know the more helpful this piece of software will be to enhance your music! I can't recommend this one highly enough. Yes. It's a bit pricey. BUT it does things no other software package in your arsenal can accomplish. I've used it for Intros, Outros and everything in the middle. I've used it for complete songs with just a couple synth pads to fill in. It's quite simply brilliant! Don't be fooled into thinking this is just an arpeggiator. Think more the difference between a skateboard and a Corvette.
