    Im looking at creating an arpeggiator effect for use in a live performance. I've managed to get to the arpeggiator editor on logic and GarageBand (on iPad).

    Both only allow you to move in octaves. I require it to move in thirds (like a broken chord). Am I missing something? Or is this feature limited to octave arpeggios?

    No, sorry.

    Logic 9 studio on my mac.

    i mentioned GarageBand iPad because it is more versatile when it comes to instruments, and features an arpeggiator. (to my recollection, this is not available on the GarageBand mac app...

    Both Garageband and Logic use a Arpeggiator that can do better than octaves.
    Ping the manual for both...it's explained in detail.

    BTW How is Garageband more versatile when dealing with instruments?
    In my experience Logic has more instruments available and many more ways to manipulate them - but Garageband is more intuitive on how use the instruments. Do you mean Garageband is easier for you to understand?

    I'm sorry! I've not explained myself very well.

    I know logic is fantastic.

    I was comparing iPad GarageBand and mac GarageBand. It seems (may be wrong) that the iPad version has an arpeggiator and the mac version doesn't

    They both have an Arpeggiator. The Mac based Garageband's is under Midi tracks.
