That feature was and is for me, so innovative and musical, I simply have NOT seen anything like it on anything else. Pers recommendation of the oberheim is interesting as I tried on at a friends house once, but thats just an arpegiator. the GR30 has a programmable beat on each string, so you can really bring in and out different rhythms just by considered playing across the fingerboard.
Yes-- in my case, I moved to a Proteus 2000 for arpeggios and did some careful midi channel mapping per guitar string to allow for different arps on each string. Same result as GR30, only a way bigger pallette of better sounds and fully programmable arps. After all that programming though, I kind of lost interest in Gtr Synth and was drawn back to the dolcent goodness of strings, tubes and speakers.
I have also put considerable effort into generating ARPs inside Ableton to be spit out as midi data to manipulate pitch of a given loop (ala the Walker repeater trick mentioned below) But this has not been so fruitful.
Anyone else figure out how to drive arpeggio midi data into Mobius (Or any other SW looper) to manipulate pitch in real time?

Quite interesting read Hans, actually most are a little disappointed with the sounds. Im not too bothered by that tho, cos Ive never had a synth that did have good presets. My trusty GR30 took years to get to what I have now 10 usable patches. And back to arps... What is with that? On the Gr 30 there was this amazing Arpegiator, that is a staple for me, I use it everyday, and Ive still yet to try the Walker repeater trick (due to needing 2 midi merge boxes to do it).
