Key feature of this arpeggiator - is a matrix editor, which allows to program patterns like in step sequencers. I took the main idea from the arp in Novation Nova synthesizer and added my experience with other arp's.
It's completely free.

Current version (windows 32\64 and mac OSX VST) is available here (updated): ... peggiator/
Intro and demonstration:

Should work in all VST-compatible hosts (FL, Cubase, Ableton, Reaper, etc.).
Important points:
- to make it work, it's midi out should be connected to either VST or hardware synth
- drag the control (blue box with value) up or down to adjust the value
- you can use parameter "input range" for keyboard-split performances

Looking for feedback, bug reports, interesting ideas, etc.
Let's discuss!

Thanks all for feedback! Looking forward for more opinions and ideas :)
If you try it, please report your DAW and OS ver. I tried just in FL Studio 10, Win7 x64.

I didn't think of it yet. Is it a performance issue or compatibility issue? Performance-wise it should't be a problem, since it's very low on CPU.
Are there any problems with x32 plugins in x64 DAW's?

The GUI is oldschool, and it offers a bit more than KIRNU. Only problem I will have: no mac port.

Else - it's on my "to try" list for the coming weeks.
