Peggi: an arpeggio keyboard

The Peggi is an eight-key arpeggio keyboard by Ian Henry.

Well, this post is not about the keyboard which btw is a Faunchpad purchased from the now closed g Heavy Industries.

This is about the arpeggiating input method.

I’ve always been attracted to chording keyboards in theory, but I lack whatever childhood musical training is required to wrap my fingers around them. So I made something else: an arpeggio keyboard – Ian Henry.

While chording keyboards require you to press multiple keys at the same time, arpeggio keyboards only ask that you type multiple keys in sequence.
