Erm as far as digital goes I cant help. But I myself use 3 x Doepfer A155
Sequencers. They are 2 x 8 Steps each or if you have the A160/161 and the
Dual Voltage Controlled Switch you can make it swap from 2 x 8 to 1 x 16
steps.

The reason I mention these sequencers in particular is because you mentioned
flexibility on sound triggering. Each of the A155's 8 CV columns (remember
this is times2) has a dedicated 3 pole switch which can be set to Trig out
1, trig out 2 or Off. This is cool for lots of realtime manipulation of
dropping out sounds/notes or playing another vco on the "off notes" by
alternating the switches etc.

You can also create random start points and reset points by feeding a signal
into the corresponding input, stop and of course clock inputs are also
controllable. It's quite a nifty bit of gear. You also have 8 CV "Ins" for
say routing a different LFO waveform in to each CV row "quite strange".

Anyway its good for such a tiny module really, so I bought 3 :) and still
want more...
