The error message tells you that the event method calls another method in which a variable is used to add something to, although that variable is not defined (it's NIL, short for "not in list", Ruby can't find a valid variable definition). Of course, Ruby can only do a + b if both a and b are capable of being added. if a is, say, a range it wouldn't work. And NIL also doesn't support adding.

This happens a lot in FS, because FS tends to send values to a RubyEdit, before the variables are defined. That is less of a Ruby issue, but more of a communication issue between both. I think Maik has changed this in FS 4 by adding a method called "ready" or similar, which you use to not accept incoming values until the RubyEdit is fully initialized. I hacked a similar solution for 3.0.6, but can't find it in my library (too many moves between PCs).

An arp is a complex code. If it's written by another it is even more difficult to understand the other one's thinking (trust me, I know what I'm talking about). Therefore, although I might be able to solve it, I won't touch the arp. It simply is too much effort, and I can't even make good progress with the current tasks I'm working on, so I would additionally disappoint other people when giving this arp priority.

You can use this graphical arp instead which I've hacked a little yesterday. Working here without an issue.

Unfortunately, it's beyond my coding skills. The simple arp you want is not that simple... it acts differently comparing to the steps arp. It's very complex since it recognizes full chords played by the user and being able to collect each played note in the chord separately and add it to the sequence in a perfect order. I can hack something similar, but I can not overcome the the full chord recognizing challenge. You'll need a Ruby guru for that.
