Design Cool Arpeggiator Sounds in Zebra

The last few weeks have been a lot of theory so today lets check out some fun stuff! Learn how to make some cool arpeggiator sounds in Zebra.

In this Zebra video I show you how to make nice and bright arpeggiator sounds in Zebra.
Instead of working with the arpeggiator mode, that you can select in the global tab, we are going to use MSEG’s and LFO’s.

There are a few advantages that MSEG’s have over the “real” arpeggiator, one important one is that you can still decide to let other notes sustain.

For example, you use 2 lanes in Zebra, one uses the pitch modulation, like an arpeggiator and in the other lane you want a sustained sound.

You can now do that by just applying the MSEG to one of the oscillators.
When you use the “real” arpeggiator it is always global and you would have to use another instance of Zebra to get the same result.

The other cool thing demonstrated in this video is the wave morphing.

Like we talked about last week you can morph or blend the different waves inside a “WaveSet” this makes for interesting, constantly evolving sounds.

You can choose to slowly blend between the different waves with a slow sine LFO, or you can jump between the values with a square LFO.

I really like this last method because you get clicky and interesting sounds that way, it already sounds like an arpeggiator without having to do the pitch modulation!

You can add as much effects to this sound as you want but keep in mind that the brightness and the sharp edge of the sound might disappear when you clutter it with reverb and delays.

As an extra you can add some EQ to accentuate the highs of the sound even more, you can add some panning, and maybe cut a little bit of the low pops aways.

Have fun practicing and, as always, let me know if you have any questions or request!
