Thanks!

There's a few about. Eventide have an arpegiator and I think there is one on the Line 6 FM4. Midi systems might also do it. Other than that have a look at a step phaser and a pitch shifter.

Roger Linn's Adrenalinn pedals have one too, although I haven't played with one extensively enough to know if that function will give you what you're looking for, just enough to hear it turn everything into John Mayer's "Bigger Than My Body" at which point I promptly turned it off.

The PitchFactor has one; I reviewed these pedals for the latest issue of bassplayer magazine (Dutch) and they rock!

The arp is genious....... I would love to own this pedal just for this option!

if I'm not mistaken the old digitech ips33b can do an arpeggio as well, but I've never heard it... Still want one of those oldies...

+1, that is a really good arpeggiator, but it is a bitch to figure out when first using it.

I've had the Adrenalinn II, and it's awesome as an arpeggiator and it does everything the Boss SL-20 slicer does plus a load of great simulations. But the downside is that to use it effectively, you either have to be running a MIDI clock with a click, or you have to have it linked to an external controller. As a standalone unit, it's pretty lame. The one gig I used in on was a disaster of technical difficulties.

Yes it can.

As a matter of fact, it can do two separate arpeggiators at once, in stereo.

can digitech ips 33b really do arpegiator or is it a delayed pitch shifter with feedback(which cant really do major triads and such)?

Many Digitech multi fx units have an LFO that can be used to control any parameter. If the LFO is programmed to affect pitch, it is possible to create arpeggiation effects.

The Alesis Philtre and Ineko were affordable sample-hold filter options at one point, but I'm not certain how inflation has affected their respective prices.

the ips 33b prices have gone up a bunch too. I should have picked one up at $175 when i had the chance.
