I've already got Omnisphere 2, Diva, Dune, Sylenth.
I'm doing alot of neutral music that relies quite a bit on synths with arps.
Ideally, a synth where arps are what it has most of If it exists.Not looking for things like Blue Arp or Cream type deals.
Would appreciate suggestions.

You missed a recent deal on a really sweet Kontakt Player library dedicated to arpeggiated sounds: http://www.kvraudio.com/news/audio-plug ... logy-38589

Z3ta has a lot of arp presets. They can be dragged into a MIDI track, too, for editing. Can't drag 'em back, though.

Thanks for that Googly. I knew the synth was out there but never thought it might have a lot of arp presets.I'll check it out right now.

The best Arpeggiator in a synth, is the one in FM8. I haven't seen something like it (in a synth):

I actually have FM8 but I really had arp presets in mind. I prefer not having to spend alot of time manipulating them if that makes sense but thanks for the input EnGee.

I agree.

Sugar Bytes Thesys, which is much more affordable than Arpology at its regular price, is a powerful sequencer with a decent library of sequence presets. The internal synthesizer sounds are good enough to audition the provided sequence presets, but you would probably want to turn off the internal sounds and route its output MIDI to another VSTi instrument plug-in. CHE created a nice set of sequence and sound presets for Thesys that can be downloaded for free.

Give it a chance. It has a great arpeggiator with good deal of randomisations.
Unlike many other synths that they have few ARP presets but many sequences that they call arps, but they are actually sequences not arpeggios ;)

It is a fairly basic arp. FM8 arp is not polyphonic... It also misses a gate per step and step length. Presets are nice.

I don't think it's basic. Show me a synth with a better arpeggio.
Also, what do you mean by polyphonic?
