As far as new great sequencers the infection music ones seem to smoke every=
thing else I've seen feature wise and interface wise.  Either the Zeit or A=
tem would be amazing.  not sure how available they are though.
As for the original question.  The MPC seems to have the midi side of his/h=
er rig handled=2C it was the step sequencing part that he was needing a sol=
ution to=2C as the baby 10's were troublesome.
My recommendation=2C if the MPC is handling your midi side just fine (as it=
 should=2C any MPC is such a great midi sequencer) then you just need a ste=
p sequencer that spits midi and a midi to cv converter.  Even with a one ch=
annel midi step sequencer (like a mobius=2C say) you can run the midi throu=
gh the MPC and then to your synths=2C so if you get something you like=2C y=
ou can record the midi into the MPC=2C then free up the sequencer to sequen=
ce other parts while the MPC keeps the previous lines going.  With a Midi s=
tep sequencer that can save patterns (like the mobius) you can go back to a=
 previous sequence and mute the recorded ones in the MPC and tweak it to so=
mething else=2C then record that into the MPC.
If all your stuff has midi then you're straight=2C if you need CV gate conv=
ersion then you will need enough channels to have all your stuff going at o=
nce. Frostwave Quad Midi to CV is a unit that has served me well for years=
=2C but there are others.
So just add a mobius=2C fat controller=2C schrittmacher=2C P3=2C doepfer=2C=
 x0xb0x=2C midibox=2C or whatever sequencer that appeals to you=2C and let =
the MPC handle the multi track aspect.  Until you start looking at much mor=
e expensive sequencers the multi track aspect is hard to get.
