2hp - Arp

Post by Mikeyg3k » Fri Nov 03, 2017 9:21 am

Didn't see anything about this module here yet - I picked one up over the weekend. Any thoughts? I am looking for some cool patch examples or tips.... seems like a lot of fun from what I've seen so far.

Hey Mikeyg3k, can I ask you a question since I have one on the way but I'm super curious until I get it? When you send CV to the Root input does the output change immediately even though there is no trigger to fire the arpeggiation? What I mean is, since the Arp acts acts as an offset value of the Root input, if I have the arpeggiation statically on the 5th note, will it always play a 5th of the CV input all the time?

I want the Output of the module to be able to follow my Root CV changes immediately (without requiring a gate to be fired) and then jump to arp notes whenever a gate is received, and I imagine that is the case, but none of the videos showcase the Root input usage, so I have to ask. I appreciate any input you can give on that matter. Let me know if I haven't made my question clear enough.

Hey! Great questions - I'm actually still on my quest trying to figure it all out. I racked it last night and studied the manual and then worked on another patch i had still going so I didn't really spend too much time with it. LOL.

Here is the link to the manual http://www.twohp.com/s/2hp_Arp.pdf

and the Page on 2hp's site. http://www.twohp.com/modules/arp

I will have a go at it this weekend and see if I can answer Your question.

Thank you for your answer. I've already read both the manual, the page, and watched all 2hp videos on instagram. They don't answer my question! Looking forward to getting an answer when you can, of course. Thanks!

The way it works is as I expected. See my description above. Merry Xmas!

Anyone have this? I'm trying to understand how it works as well.

If feed it a C note and a gate, what happens?

I have two of these and I think they’re great. The root controls the root note and the trig causes the offsets from the root to cycle according to the chord type and direction mode selected. The output is root note plus offset.

If I feed a C note to the root cv, and a gate signal to the trigger, what happens? If the mode is set to major, does it play the individual notes in a C major chord? Are additional gate signals required to trigger the notes?
Hey SeattleDucati. When you send a pulse to the Gate input the CV of the output will cycle through the notes in the currently selected chord.

If you send a C note at the root CV, and the current chord is Major triad, the CV output will be C E G (depending on the mode of course) and then C again.

Just got this installed tonight. Will give it a run through tomorrow night. A bit scary installing the module. The pcb board hangs off the back a long way, and it's only held on with thin wires. Seems pretty delicate.

thats the thing with the 2hp modules, to save space they seem a little fragile and the power cable is in an awkward place. But i have a few and once i squeezed them in I've never had a problem.
I do think the Arp is one of their better designs. I just let it run and don't have to wiggle the knobs much (but you may feel the need to)

Man that guy is great at explaining the functionality of modules. I could listen to him all day (and probably will :hihi: ). Just serious presentations, no goofy faces while he's looking at the modules on the thumbnails in Youtube. Hats off!

Hi,

I'm having a good time with the Arp although something seems off to me and i wonder if some of you experience the same or that its just my module.

If i patch a cv into root in, root out gives me a 1 or two octave higher pitch when root pot. is fully ccw.

The manual says the position of the pot. is added to the cv in, but then it should be a copy of the cv in when the pot. is fully ccw right?

Thanks in advance!

I imagine if you're sending a cv value higher than 0V into the cv root in, then you're getting a value of 0V + whatever cv value you're adding. Fully ccw is not going to convert incoming cv to 0v.

The Arp is a cool module. I like shoving a cv from the Rampage ab out on long cycle into the mode input (just above the LEDs). The slow mode progression against a drone is super fun!

Seems that the 2hp Arp is nowhere in Stock at Dealers in Europe.

Yep, Signal Sounds is a good vendor (purchased from them many times) and Mattech is a quite active members of this forum.

Also had good experiences with Signal Sounds. That said, my impression is that Soundria and MattechModular are also solid retailers. I have only heard good things about all three of them.

MattTech Modular is super reliable; he's my first stop for modules, and only if he doesn't have it do I look elsewhere (typically Rubadub is my next port of call).

Lisa gave us a few links but in fact there's a problem with 2hp modules availabiity. I can't buy the Arp in my country (and in really good prices!) and the only thing the local shops can offer is a waiting list. So I wait in a line for over three months...
As for the Signal sounds...
