Integrated/Digital Synths With More Modular Sequencers

Most sequencers in instruments like even the Pro-2 are built around the
note or gate event - you can’t clock or advance the sequencer with an LFO,
or even the steps from another sequencer line. Are there any “complete”
instruments with sequencers that behave more like analogue or modular
sequencers? AFAIK, even the Hydrasynth requires note/gate.

Ideally, I’m looking for something that can merge multiple pulse chains
with logical OR, XOR, etc, but that might be pie-in-the-sky.

That leaves me with something like the Monomachine (the “trigless trigs”
really were an underrated feature) or Nord Modulars, but is there anything
in production that I can acquire and maybe even leave my 4u modular gear at

Even the basic uses here seem to be out of reach for much when you’re not
in a modular rig:

I guess if the only solution is a newer synth and a dedicated sequencer
like the MAPS or, to a lesser extent, the Schrittmacher, so it goes, but
I’d like to have something all-in-one, if I can. I don’t even have MIDI
gear anymore.
