With season's greetings and the unexpected honor to be the first this year:

QMidiArp is finally reborn !

Although yet in another alpha state this arpeggiator, sequencer and MIDI LFO has grown quite a bit in functionality and, hopefully, usability.

Special thanks for his explanations and initial support go to Guido Scholz.

ENJOY and best wishes for 2011


QMidiArp is available for download at 


and it now has an own sourceforge project page at


and git repo


(developers welcome)

Tutorial videos are available on youtube, just search for qmidiarp.
