An arpeggiator moves in patterns between a range of notes that has the same "sound". Usually using a single vsti on a track.
What if each note would equal a different instruments note?
Then the arp should do random patterns of a range of notes that have different "sounds".
There probably is plugins that do this but bluarp and sequensers have too much functions to go thru and learn. You probably give up on it and move to the next interesting plugin. (I know i do.)
This plugin keep it simple. Settings for pattern and note range. How much randomness. Settings for note to midichannel.
A possibility could be a tempo envelope to give it a rythm.

Concretely I would suggest:

1. Multiband exciter
This was the 2012 winner, Thrillseeker XTC. It is limited to Windows/x86 though, so I guess there is some demand for an update.
Generally there are only very few Multiband-exciters. And that's exactly why
this is an interesting playing field for new plugins and new operating concepts.

2. Multiband transient shaper
These I find odd because crossovers mess with transients. If you're going to do smeary things to transients I'd be more interested to see some new plugins based on allpass filters. Maybe a plugin that looks like an EQ but sets a curve for group delay?
Each plugin changes the output tone more or less. And the smearing of
transients is very much dependent on what kind of sound you are editing.

I find it tempting to try out how transient shaping works in the various
frequency bands. Sometimes you only get the right punch - for a snare,
for example - if you increase the transients of a certain frequency band.

So: a multiband transient shaper could be a really fantastic plugin to
play with.

3. Dynamic EQ
Second place in 2014, and developed into TDR Nova which is pretty much the best free plugin there is. What more do you want?
Ohh, that's a misunderstanding: I'm not posting plugins here that I absolutely
need. Haha, I think I already have them all. No, this is simply about what
could be tempting in the overall landscape of existing plugins and ideas.

It's about something that could perhaps be innovative - and open the door
to new realms - and still be useful when working on songs and sounds on
a daily basis. It's about ideas and suggestions for the Developer Challenge!

And here too: There are only a few dynamic EQs, you mentioned one, but
that is precisely why there is plenty of room for new things.

A slicer with built in sequencer/arranger, like good ol' LiveSlice:


Or any other creative sampler/granulator/mangler etc. :tu:
