these are lacking what?
None of them can do what Oxium sequencer do for example : Custom lenght of steps (ie fully custom, not only multiple/divisis of the base step, but in Oxium it's snapped to grid, or totally free length).Steps can trigger enveloppes, LFOs, but they also have their own enveloppes. And a special mode gives you exact notes, if you want to turn it into as a note sequencer VS an event sequencer. You can of course control any synthesis parameters with the Masks sequencers.
So, it's not fully modular, but it gives musicians a certain level of interaction, that can become very complex, or to make simple tasks like trancegated lines or groove sequences.
So Oxium can perform certain tasks, like adapting to any human groove (ie not simple 'swintg') , in a quite simple way, that very few 'events' ( note, control synth parameters, trigg modules) sequencers can do.
otoh, these arpeggiators can all do some things that Oxium can't do. Diversity and unique features are probably the key points here.
I'll probably speak more about the PKB III capabilities later.
