My first exposure to an arpeggiator was an arp or moog or something I got to work with for an Electronic Music class way back in 1990. No MIDI, just patch cables on a 4 track reel-to-reel. Had to bounce tracks and everything.
29 years ago, damn. This was for a final class project and I did alright.
*sigh* I really have to get back into. I have rare moments in life I’m able to set things up and do this stuff. Short periods all the equipment is set to do something, then life hits and it’s gotta go back on the shelf.
