DAW users are not typically arranger keyboard users.
The big 3 will never release anything on PC that's equivalent to even their low tier arrangers. This market is hugely profitable for them. lots of older folks who don't use computers, kids, you name it.
There's a PC based arranger called vArranger. It's expensive, but well established and has a community.

But probably Korg will step in and make a simple "Pa" app.. Why not, they already ported most of their hardware products into the software domain.

can band in a box work now in realtime ?. so when press a chord or use one note chord feature and it change pad and bass to fit the chord. and is it possible in realtime that band in a box can change in next bar the pattern ?. arranger keyboards have diffrent patterns they are called , variation 1 /2 man 1 / 2 /fill 1/2

I never work live. Always transfer Biab and Realband backing arrangement to Cakewalk daw so don't really know about realtime.
There's this free backing arrangement software called Jjazzlab, It's a standalone but there are possibilities to save as midi and one can use the (recommended) VirtualMIDISynt software to save the sound to wav.
It uses Yamaha-type of styles. I reacted to your mention of variations. Yamaha have these main/filler/break variations for their styles.

Because it's free and opensource one could install it and try to achieve what ones after by testing and maybe use some scripting.
