Arp like on Roland's MC 303/505?


I sold my MC 505 earlier this year due to an OS move. As with most gear I have acquired and subsequently sold over the years, there are some features from the 505 that I find myself missing from time to time.

The arp is the reason for this post so I'll just get to it. I loved having the ability to sweep through and tweak the accent thus giving the arp line a different feel. I don't want to reacquire a 505 just for this feature... it's too big, i don't need the sequencer or the sounds for that matter. I obviously can get by without such a feature, but it was a useful feature and I like useful things

Is there a VSTi or iOS app that has a similar type arp feature that anyone can suggest?

I also like the arp on the MC505 -- you might like StepPolyArp for iOS as it has a groove function that is similar and way, way more.

Have you tried Kirnu Cream? That has an arp accent panel perfect for altering feel.
