Channel Robot has announced the availability of SARP, a free Kontakt instrument that allows you to experience the powerful sequenced arpeggiator contained in several of Channel Robot’s main products.

SARP includes 6 voices (2 from Folio Bass, 2 from Phenomena and 2 from KeyTone) which you can select and play either with or without the arpeggiation. Some 50 arp presets are included.

Unlike other sequencers, this enables you to run up to 8 different sequencers at the same time based on how many notes are pressed on your keyboard. The first lane corresponds to the first key pressed, the second lane to the second key and so on. It’s incredibly flexible and easy to use.

Welcome to SARP – a stand alone arpeggiator-instrument. Sometimes its easier to just do rather than say, and our unique and creative arpeggiator is one such time. We’ve used the underlying engine in a range of products, Folio Bass, Phenomena, and others.

We wanted to give you an opportunity to try the sequencer for free so you can learn how to use it to its potential before you purchase and of the full products that use the same arp. So here it is in stand-alone and for-free.

There’s only 8 voices to select from (2 Basses from Folio Bass, 2 voices from Phenomena, 2 from the up-coming KeyTone and 2 drum kits from the up-coming Folio Drums), so it’s never going to be your go-to sound source, but for creative polyrhythmic arpeggiations we think its unsurpassed.

You can make Kontakt send midi notes out so you can even place your sound-source of choice right after SARP-Kontakt in your DAW to get arpeggiated sequences using other instruments. So it should be really really useful out of the box.

SARP is a free download at Channel Robot and from Kontakt Hub.
