StepPolyArp - Midi Step Polyphonic Arpeggiator
By Laurent Colson
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
StepPolyArp is a real-time Midi arpeggiator to control Midi instruments, sequencers like Logic, Cubase, Live, and all other Midi sequencers, or even other virtual instruments installed on the same iPad. The arpeggiator can automatically generate melodic patterns from notes or chords played in real time.
Although, StepPolyArp is specially designed to operate in Midi, it has own internal sounds bank to use it independently.

Love this app
Update a few years later: I still love this app. It looks complicated or at times underwhelming but it is a true beast and brilliant to say the least. Things coming out this arp sound amazing and app is very intuitive. It should have 1000 reviews by now, not 2.
Also, the dev has put update after update for years. And since not many that love the app take time to review again it works against him (one little bug can upset a person while 50,000 happy users had already rated 5 and don't know those posts get "erased".
This is a 7 star app. I have zero affiliation with the maker, and just felt I had to chime it again after so many years of fun and productivity.
I am a fan of playing with apps to create music, and among probably 100 apps I bought this sits at the top. It let's you you create patterns with endless twists that when fed simple melodies, they become alive and with thousand emotions, just depending on the arpeggio you use and how you adjust it
It is a good app. It has a nice interface and a lot of settings for interfacing with other apps or gears.
