Arturia BeatStep Pro Controller and Sequencer
BeatStep Pro is your main performance hub to gear of the future, and classic hardware of years past. Designed for hands-on hardware sequencing, BeatStep Pro combines two fully independent melodic sequencers with up to 64 steps per sequence, and one drum sequencer that allows for 16 separate tracks of sequencing. Beyond sequencing, BeatStep Pro also incorporates on-board performance effects.
BeatStep Pro features two melodic step sequencers. Record the pitch, duration and velocity of a note in real time using the pads or an external keyboard and your sequence will play back, quantized at the step resolution. You can also enter notes in step mode using the knobs and Step buttons. Sequences can have up to 64 steps, with a total of 32 sequences per Project and 16 Projects in all.
In addition to the two melodic sequencers, BeatStep Pro features a 16-track drum sequencer. As with the others, these sequences can be recorded in real time using the pads. But you can also enter the steps using a classic drum machine workflow; the choice is yours. The knobs can be used to define the velocity and duration of notes, and they’re also able to shift the timing of the notes away from the quantized values. That way your patterns will have exactly the kind of groove you want.
Knobs, buttons, and pads: BeatStep Pro has quite a few. And they’re fully customizable using the included MIDI Control Center application. Use BeatStep Pro to make your MIDI devices and VST instruments do exactly what you want them to.
