Do you have a controller?

If not, then write in the appropriate notes with the pencil tool (see the Creative collection pdf manual for which notes those are). ProTools will play them back however you "program" them. This is not a realtime method.. you need some kind of controller for that

What kind of machine am I looking for?
Korg ES-1 mkII or ESX-1. With DIN Sync.

I think I'm going to go with the Korg Kaossilator KP3... it seems more like a toy then the other ones and I think that is what I am looking for for this particular application. Plus the tubes in the ESX-1 could break, and guitar center doesn't sell the es-1 anymore.

At least that's if these devices do what I think they all do. I think these devices all write MIDI arpeggios (i guess you would call them arpeggios). One of my friends has a Korg Micro... maybe I can steal it from him.

ES-1 mkII is a drum sequencer not an arpeggiator and they have long been discontinued but ebay lists the ES-1 mkII.

I want them to send out midi notes in patterns...they don't necessarily have to be arpeggios... but they can't just be c3 in rhythm either.

The ES-1 mkII does send MIDI event data that Pro Tools can record.

Damn, it would really be jazzy if the KP3 did that. How does it not? I don't understand... it has a MIDI out... MIDI doesn't "make" drum sounds, it "triggers" them.

Is MIDI event data just like MIDI note data except with extra things like velocity and stuff on each note and all in between and stuff?

There is two types of MIDI data, Channel and Message data. Message data is note start, gate length, velocity, aftertouch, etc., and Channel data is output assignments, etc.

Although a drum sequencer and arpeggiator read rests and ties, a drum sequencer does not read pitch, typically.
