Sample Logic in collaboration with Ask Audio offer ARPOLOGY™ for just $99 (75% off) HERE
ARPOLOGY is the world’s first virtual instrument and MIDI effect dedicated entirely to arpeggiated/sequenced instruments.

Instruments & Multis
In the design of ARPOLOGY, Sample Logic felt that it was important to use a wide spectrum of instrument recordings spanning all genres and sound types such as: choirs, woodwinds, brass, strings, world instruments, sound effects, various field recordings, industrial tools, machinery, synths, and much more. Sample material was carefully and selectively hand picked from key sample sets from the entire Sample Logic vault of over 200 gigabytes of already recorded material used in SL's previous products. Once gathered and selected, this material was then used as the clay, which now has been morphed and animated into a series of never before heard instruments that will blow anyone away.

The instruments are divided into 3 main categories:
  • Cinematic / Organic
  • Electronic / Effectual
  • Percussive
Multis are also divided into 2 categories:

  • Instrument Stacks
  • One Note Glory

  • Polyphonic Sequencer – Works the same as the arpeggiator but all the notes are played at the same time
  • Rhythmic Gater – Only affects the sound amplitude.
Three buttons below the main arpeggio window determine which mode (arpeggio, poly or gate) you will be using with a simple click.

The Main Page
The initial control elements that you are presented with are Volume, Pan, Attack, Release, Pitch, Sample Start, EQ, High Pass and Low Pass Filter indicators and the mysterious “Big Knob”.
The EQ section is very flexible. There are nine center dials that control Frequency, Bandwidth and Gain controls for the EQ. On each side you can also turn on Cutoff and Resonance controls for the High and Low Pass bands which provides a great deal of “tweak potential” to make those sounds your own and help them fit into the mix.
The omnipresent “Big Knob” allows you to morph the sound using effects including Compression, Distortion, Lo-Fi, Rotator, Chorus, Phaser and Flanger. You can also link multiple FX to create even more complex effect models to refine your sound.
The FX Section
The FX section of the interface is is divided into four quadrants: The Step Modulators, Insert FX and Send FX controls which are controllable by keyswitch or mouse click.
There are 10 Step Modulators – 4 Volume, 4 Pan, 1 Low Pass and 1 High Pass. These can be activated simultaneously, along with controls for the number of Steps, Frequency and Intensity.
The Insert FX section allows the user to activate any or all of the 7 effects including Compressor, Distortion, Lo-Fi, Rotator, Chorus, Flanger and Phaser.
The Send FX section includes both Delay and a Convolution Reverb. Delay includes controls for Time, Pan and Amount, etc while thee Reverb includes IR Size, LP, HP and Amount.

Bryan, known for his incredible sound design on Decimator Drums, used only a 26-inch ride cymbal and a 32-inch gong as sound sources.
The goal here was to extract the more ethereal side of these percussion instruments. This library is atmospheric, emotional, edgy and otherworldly, and is sure to find it’s way into your next production.
