there is a huge market of synth-edit plugins for sale.
if you just wanted to have the programmer do all the design and implementation you're going to have to settle for something like 99% of the profits to the programmer, assuming they would even want to touch the idea.
as i said if you can think of existing things to assemble to create your plugin, you don't need a prototype. if you can however, why not use sync-modular and quickly assemble these parts to test them? it takes very little effort and costs you nothing.

how exactly do i do that in sync-modular?
not to mention that the guy's website is not even working...
I am a graphic designer, so I can develop GUI / website / videos and all marketing to go into this plugin
I will pay up front if the programmer does not want to "split profits" at the end... however I feel most programmers are like musicians in that sense: they want to own their own work.

If the song writer (idea maker) could play the instruments (code audio software), they would just write the song, play the instruments and collect 100%.

i've written complete arpeggiators from scratch.
my guess for cost would be about 10k for this project. i wouldn't accept it unless for-hire because i don't see the product being profitable. not including graphical work - you'll also need to hire an artist or do it yourself.
negotiable if you want to license pre-existing libraries.
your idea must be nuclear if you expect it to compete with the free arps already available.

i also have several limited-feature arps implemented in various places that wouldn't interest you as all you could see would be the source, not a complete plugin.
i have an arp i plan to include in my commercial effects package which is currently WIP unreleased. yours would probably be a derivative from the existing code at first which i why i estimated only 10k, not 30k or more.
see my webpage link in sig and the effects section for a very old alpha implementation.
if you want to discuss more, let's go into private and we can post back here about how the idea works out - as an example to would-be idea people to learn from.

Also I couldnt get it to send midi out to anything in sonar.
nexus 2's arp is also not the same direction that I wanted to go.
in fact. there is not a single piece of software out there that does what I want in this case.
it's ok I will keep looking around to see if I can find somebody with a portfolio they can show me
thanks anyways. in the meantime I will just try something in synthedit and see if i can get close to a prototype.
