Marcus,

I didn't comment on the Unit Multiply because it would have just added a distraction to the points I wanted to make.  Unit Multiply will half-time or double the speed of the 4/4 time signature.  The settings in between half and double I believe will create 3/4 time signatures.  So an arp doesn't have to be playing FAST.  It can be slow.  Just listen to the different musical phrases in our style parts.  It is most likely many of those loops were created with an arpeggiator.

... and we will have to see once the board is in the hands of some of the forum members as to any improvements over the S970 OTHER than more knobs and sliders.

Well attached is from Genos Data List Book.  It looks like Yamaha implemented my suggestion for the S970 (BTW.. which Yamaha Engineers said it couldn't be done)   Many of the Arp parmaters and Live Control Parameters are saved in OTS, Registrations, and Voice Set.

I'm going to try to revive this thread after I was rudely interrupted by a stroke two days after the last post. ( October 16) I went through 3 weeks of intense physical and occupational therapy plus speech therapy (3 hours a day) followed by Carotid Artery surgery in early December

I connected the Motif Rack XS audio outs to the Aux audio In on the S970 so I could record a couple of Performances using the on-board USB Audio recorder.  I created an algorithm using my MIDI hardware controller that implements several XG messages in real-time using a foot controller.  People with a Genos might be able to create a similar setup with the faders if you can set the minimum and maximum values for the sliders and assign the 9th slider as Master Fader.

My setup looks like this:

Resonance:     64 - 68
Filter Cut Off:  64 - 68
Attack Rate:    64 - 68
Decay rate:     60 - 68
Release Rate: 60 - 70
Arp Gate:        75 - 180

If you listen closely, you will hear changes going from staccato to lagato in the 4 arps as they play.  The controls effect all 4 arps because they all play one MIDI channel 1.

I will be posting a similar demo using S970 arps.  My setup for the S970 uses a different algorithm for the XG controllers.

OK,

Here is a demo on the S970 with a custom style using Magic Dance pack Voices.  The XG controllers are set different than for the Motif and are optimized for R1 and R2 to get the results you hear.  I don't know whether you can setup the Genos Live Control sliders to accomplish the same thing as I did with my external Peavey PC1600x MIDI controller.
