Arches

Post by JM Midnight » Sat Mar 09, 2019 10:54 pm

Buongiorno!

I have seen that Soundmachines has released ARCHES on Perfect Circuit. It's one thousand USD, and I'd say that's a fair price. It combines Lightstrips and Lightpads in a Buchla-style workflow. I like that. Currently, I'm in need for a solid controller for my Eurorack, and I much prefer touchplates over keys. I own a Minibrute 2/S, but that is more for sequential control. I have a little Monotron Delay and I adore it's unconventional controller, but I would like to own a controller like the Delay that would command a Eurorack-style rig.

Does Arches have a sequencer and arpeggiator? I have seen videos of it demonstrated, but I could not figure out if Arches hosted these features internally or if you had to have it trigger other sequencers or arpeggiators.

Any feedback would be helpful as I am about to buy this kit in a couple of weeks.

Hi there!
Yes, arches can host up to three arpeggiators (each with its own notes, cv and midi outputs etc..), one step sequncer and 5 trigger sequencers (8 step).
The firmware that will be available friday will include the new sequencers and many improvement including sync capabilites etc..
We also will publish the new manual.
You can find the current version of the manual here:
