How do I stop an arpeggiator in a clip upon pressing stop elsewhere in the same track?

I'm having trouble getting an arpeggiator stop playing. What settings do I need to be wary of to not have the arpeggiator continue sending midi when a stop button in the same track is pressed? Any other (useful) way of silencing the track when launching clips?

    Having checked out your settings there is no obvious reason why this is happening. Perhaps you have a delay also on this track, maybe within an instrument you are using. If you cannot solve the problem perhaps you could take a few screen shots of the rack, track and MIDI clips you are using... this will help me to solve the problem.

    Are you sure the Arpeggiator function HOLD is not ON?


    If you are using the Hold Option as part of a performance or a Recording Track, you should Map or Take a Look to the Automation within a Clip or in the Arrangement view in order to turn it off.

    Hey Carlos, thanks for taking your time to reply. Hold was the first thing I was looking for. It is set to off.

    It appears that what the clip wants to do - or the arpeggiator device - is to send a 'tail' of midi through the rest of the device chain.

    Arpeggiator settings:

    Style: Pinky Up

    Groove: Straigh

    Offset: 0

    Hold: Off

    Sync: On

    Rate: 1/24

    Gate: 94%

    Retrigger: Beat - 3/8, Repeats - Inf

    Transpose: Shuft

    Key: C

    Steps: 1

    Distance: +12st

    Velocity: On

    Retrigger: Off

    Decay: 26.3 ms

    Target: 84

    Can anybody please help me explain how to get a clip arpeggiated like above to go silent (apart from say, the reverb tail) when launching the next scene? It just keeps playing a couple of steps well into the next scene , where I tried placing a stop button.
