Transpose via midi keyboard ONLY works when you have connected the beatstep via usb to your pc to control softsynth.
When you control a hardware synth via MIDI or CV/Gate, the note you want the sequence to be transposed to, passes through the beatstep and is heard in between the notes of the sequence!
A BIG problem in my opinion!
This is really strange. The most obvious way to use step sequencer is to transpose the sequence using a keyboard. Latched, of course. This is how classic analog stuff work (CV sequencers, CV synth). I don't care how cheap BeatStep is, without proper key transpose it is hardly of any use.
Not to mention lack of XOX style accent and slur (legato).
I am using Logic and bunch of analog synths and I cannot get even this non-latched key transpose. Really frustrated. Has anyone cracked it with real hardware synths (over midi)?
I am wondering does BeatStep in fact receive any midi (does it process any midi input except for CV conversion?).
How come nobody is freaking out over this? Is it just me?
I thought Arturia really nailed it with BeatStep. Not so sure anymore.
