Arp Module - Transform your chords in new ways.

The other half of Cthulhu is a unique pattern-based arpeggiator, allowing incoming notes or chords to be manipulated in various rhythmic ways. The 8 tabs of the stepsequencer allow you to completely reshape the incoming MIDI notes, even a single note fed into the arp can become a unique and rhythmic riff! Even if you have other arpeggio software plug-ins, Cthulhu's arp is unique and powerful with advanced features such as chord-arpeggio mode, ties, duration / velocity sequencing, intelligent transpose, harmony, and more! Every tab of the sequencer can operate on its own length, allowing for evolving polymetric arpeggios. From simple to complex, from chaotic to creating precise arpeggio you imagine in your head!

Audio Damage Tattoo v1.2.0 Windows Audio Damage Tattoo v1.2.0 Windows
Soft / Audio Soft 5-10-2015
With twelve voices inspired by the famous X0X series of analog drum machines and an internal sequencer that is second to none, Tattoo makes an excellent addition to the arsenal for any electronic music producer. 
Each of the twelve internal voices has been created using our proprietary D-Plane synthesis, and each has been extensively tested and tuned in order to have a broad palette. Every parameter of every voice has its own modulation sequencer, allowing for extensive motion within a pattern.
The grid sequencer in Tattoo is a whole world unto itself, with comprehensive randomization features and multiple sync modes, including a MIDI note sync to enable use with virtually any time signature, groove template, or host swing. The sequencer has MIDI out (VST only) to drive other sound sources, to double or replace Tattoo's internal sounds. 
In short, Tattoo is more than a simple drum synth; it is a complete rhythm programming environment.
Features:
12 Drum Synths: Tattoo comes equipped with twelve different voices, utilizing our custom D-Plane synthesis, rather than the one general catch-all voice you find in most drum synth plug-ins. 
Sophisticated Step Sequencer: Tattoo's internal sequencer comes correct, taking grid programming to the next level.
Randomization For Days: There are multiple routes to randomizing your beats, from subtle ghost notes to full on haywire. 
Parameter Sequencing: Every synth parameter (and we mean every one) has its own sequencer, including randomization. 
Synchronized: Tattoo can run off its internal sequencer, from host sync, or via "note sync," where the sequencer can be stepped with MIDI notes. In this way, Tattoo can run in any time signature you can come up with, or sync to any groove template in any host sequencer. 
MIDI Input: Tattoo's MIDI implementation includes full MIDI learn for all parameters and MIDI pattern switching. You can also use MIDI note input in addition to or instead of Tattoo's internal sequencer, and still have access to the randomization features and MOD sequencing. 
MIDI Output: Tattoo sends MIDI output of all its note events, including randomization, so you can use its step sequencer to drive any other drum synth or sampler (or any instrument, really) as long as your host allows MIDI routing from a plug-in instrument.
Audio Outputs: Tattoo has six stereo outputs. The first buss has a modified version of the Kombinat "One Knob Compressor" to add a little (or a lot of) squish to things.
