Solton Programmer vs. Quasimidi Sirius?

Two "all-in-one" machines from different generations, both good for "minimal" standalone production.

What I liked in the Solton is the ability to manually "type in" the arpeggiator pattern, and then have it play along whatever chord you play by hand (see the video, home-keyboard style). Immediacy is the key (well, as I see it from the demo - you don't have to do grid-editing, just play the pattern along with the rhythm).
Any other unit able of doing that (well, apart from Band-In-A-Box)?

I don't like the drums, but the drums like me!

I use the Quasi Midi Sirius quite a bit and to be honest have found it to be not only kinda glitchy but also that the sequencer being limited to 8 steps to be sorta limiting as well ...Im actually in the process of replacing it with several rack synths and transferring all my MIDI sequencing to a MPC ...
