Creating rhythmic patterns with the Arpeggiator effect

Live has several MIDI effects that allow you to alter a MIDI signal before it enters a virtual instrument. In this video, we'll discuss how you add a MIDI effect to a track and learn to use Live's MIDI Arpeggiator Effect device. So let's see how this works. I have got one track in the session here, and I've got this brass patch loaded on it. So I am going to go into the Device browser and open up the MIDI Effects folder here, come down, and grab Arpeggiator. And remember, I can either load the Arpeggiator device, or I can load a device with presets if I open up and choose one of these items here.

I am just going to choose the default. I am going to drag and drop that on the track. Now, you'll notice that if I try and put it after the virtual instrument, then I am getting a warning message down there at the bottom of the screen that says, "MIDI effects have to be inserted before the instrument." So I'll drop it over there, and what's going to happen then...
