I would like to have a new serie of training going a little deeper intho the things. I am looking for example how to step seq to module the patterns. It seems that with the arpegiatior is limited to 4 patterns ABCD but we should be able to use the step sequence as a modulator of this patterns. Then I should be able to play AAAB, ABDDABBC or patter I like. It was I have been explained by a vengeance tech guy. But I am not able to redo what he suggested me. Please help me with more trainings

great synth, very good review
I own Vengeance Avenger and think it's a great soft synth. I'm ~20% through this video tutorial and think its a very clear and useful tutorial. Avenger is so powerful, it helps to have a walk through. Deducting 1 star because there are already other good (free) extensive tutorials for this synth. That said, make no mistake, this is a very worth while tutorial for Avenger owners or the Avenger curious, and a nice job by the video author & guide.
