The keyboard is the basic synthesizer controller device with a built in arpeggiator.
The latch button enables and disables the latch function. When the latch function is enabled, any keys pressed will not be released. This is useful when using the arpeggiator. Please note, the latch button does not hold incoming MIDI notes.
The slide button locks and unlocks the ability to slide the keys on the keyboard left or right to access higher or lower octaves.
The mode button sets the order in which the arpeggiated notes are played back.
The octave button sets how many octaves the arpeggiator cycles through.
The rate knob sets the speed at which the arpeggiator plays notes. The speed is dependent on tempo and the knob increments in 1/64th note steps.
The gate knob sets the gate time of the arpeggiated notes. The gate time is a range of 0-100% of the arpeggiator step size. Low gate times work best with slower arpeggiator rates and faster envelopes.
The pitch bend wheel slides the current keyboard note up or down. The pitch bend range is set in the settings view.
The modulation wheel sends a control voltage to mod output on the master module. The signal can be send to any input socket, but typically modulates oscillators or filters. This is useful for live performance playing.
The keyboard has a standard 10 octave range from MIDI note 0 (C -1) to MIDI note 119 (B 8). The keys are labeled every octave on the C notes. When SLIDE is enabled, you can swipe left or right to slide the keyboard to reveal more keys. When SLIDE is disabled, swiping your finger left or right will play the keys touched.

The keyboard sends its control voltage signals to the MASTER module. The outputs are 1V/octave, gate, and modulation. See the MASTER module for additional information.
The arpeggiator is a great way to add simple to complex note arrangements to your sound. The arpeggiator is the traditional analog synthesizer style and is not pattern based.
