Arturia BeatStep Pro Controller & Sequencer
On stage or in the studio BeatStep Pro is designed to perform. Whether you work with MIDI, USB, CV/gate or DIN sync gear, BeatStep Pro is all about no limits and total creative control.
Designed for hands-on hardware sequencing, the BeatStep Pro brings two fully independent melodic sequencers and one drum sequencer. You can from the BeatStep Pro manage a full performance, controlling software instruments, analog and digital synthesisers, drum machines and drum kits, iPad apps.
The melodic sequencers offer up to 64 steps per sequence, 16 sequences per project and 16 projects, making them the most impressive step sequencers ever made. The additional drum sequencer allows for 16 separate tracks of sequencing. Record in real-time via the pads or use the step buttons for a classic drum machine workflow. As if all this were not enough, Arturia added a number of performance effects such as a looper with touch strip, randomiser, swing settings and other hands on control possibilities that are sure to make this a modern classic.
The controller mode allows you to trigger clips in your favourite DAW, play drum sounds in a module or adjust parameters in your favourite plug-in. The possibilities are only limited by your imagination. With USB, MIDI in and out, CV/GATE outputs, and Clock in/out that can work as a 1:1 clock with an external clock generator or DIN sync, the BeatStep Pro goes well beyond any other step-sequencer on the market. You can use it with large modular synthesisers, current digital synthesisers, the computer.
