What is an Arpeggiator / Arpeggio?

Last Update: 12/09/2010

Arpeggio:
In music, arpeggio, is Italian for broken chord where the notes are played or sung in sequence, one after the other, rather than ringing out simultaneously. This word comes from the Italian word "arpeggiare" , which means "to play on a harp". Formed from scales, the arpeggio is based on the relative scale playing the "key" notes or those affected by the key signature.

Arpeggiator:
A device that triggers a series of arpeggiated notes, which will change based on the chord or note specified by the user.
