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.

What's New in Version 2.2.2
Most valuable app in my arsenal
Like the title says, I use this app more than any others and is the only iPad based app that I have fully integrated into my workflow.
For starters, it is very stable and it works without exception(unlike all of Sugarbytes overpriced and very buggy apps that crash without fail) . I use it as a sketch pad so to speak, to write different song parts on the go then use rtpmidi to wirelessly play an instrument within my host program. It's full of powerful, yet easy to understand features.
The only truly negative thing I have to say about it is, I wish I could manually enter values in the sliders across the top menu because the sliders(particularly the swing and speed) tend to be a little too sensitive and can take a little bit of effort to fine tune.
