Step sequencers, for the most part, are designed to output control voltages to control the pitch of monophonic analog synthesizers or any other modulation destination that accepts control voltages (ie, filter cut-off).

What sort of INPUT does the sequencer your wanting to use have. Most step sequencers will have an input for an external clock so you can synchronize it with other gear.

OK, sounds like you want a SAMPLER and NOT and sequencer.

So just about any sampler should do what you're wanting to do. Just send the MIDI OUT from your GR-33 to the MIDI IN of the sampler and run the sampler's audio out into your amp.

I recommend watching some videos on YouTube of MIDI guitarists triggering samplers from their rigs to get an idea of what they're doing and to help pick the right sampler for your needs.

I'm not a guitarist and don't know how the GR-33 works, but I do remember reading about Roland's early MIDI guitar systems that each string is assigned to its own MIDI channel that way each string can operate independently (own pitch bending and such). That being the case, you'll want a sampler that is MULTI-TIMBRAL which allows multiple instances of the same (or different) instrument sample to be assigned to multiple MIDI channels. You could have all 6 strings trigger a piano sample, or you could configure it to where the low E is playing a tuba, middle 4 strings playing violins and the high E playing a trumpet.

This is so confusing, it's hard to tell if you really do want a sampler. I think you need to research and get a clear picture of what the basic definitions of sampler, sequencer, midi, and audio signals, including CV and gate signals are. Also, maybe someone on here can read your post in your native language and translate your message clearly to us?
This looks like a psychotropic reaction. No wonder it's so popular...

Like Ninja suggested, you need to read up on terminology as you are clearly getting these confused.

We are here to help you, but you need to know the terminology so we can better assist you.

Sounds like these keyboard players are using digital MIDI sequencers to play back additional parts.

A MIDI sequencer is a composition tool. Think of a MIDI sequencer for music as a word processor is to writing. You record music DATA (not sound) into the sequencer and you can manipulate it (cut, copy, paste, quantize, etc).

Worship songs are the Christian music that used in contemporary worship. These songs are also known as the "praise music". Worship songs typically led by a "worship band" or "praise team".
