KeyStep Black Edition

Back to Black

The Arturia KeyStep is an essential tool for the modern musician, and ideal for performance as well as studio experimentation. Create polyphonic sequences on a virtual instrument in your DAW, sync with a modular drum machine using its CV connectivity, and play a melody at the same time through an outboard analog synth.

Small but mighty, the Arturia KeyStep redefines what’s possible with a small-format sequencer. Featuring a 32 slim-key keybed with aftertouch, musicians can use it to create rich, polyphonic step sequences with real-time recording and rewriting. Letting you layer up to 8 notes per step, and with sequences up to 64 steps long, the only limit is your imagination. KeyStep packs in many other features usually found in sequencers several times its price, including user memories, an 8-mode arpeggiator, playing a melody over a sequence, a chord mode, and comprehensive connectivity including CV gate and MIDI.

KeyStep Black Edition also comes complete with 3 CV cables to connect to your outboard synths and equipment, Analog Lab Lite, Ableton Live Lite and some cool Arturia stickers.

Once again Arturia delivers hardware of incredible value and that provides excellent bang for very reasonable bucks.

About the KeyStep

aw1

Step sequencer is great. Works as a controller and sequencer simultaneously. Flexible control and connectivity options. (...) BeatStep is only slightly larger than half an A4 page but feels substantial.

About the BeatStep

aw1

Its interface is fast, open... Those pads serve well for the input of melodies, bass lines and drums and the encoders are spot on for sequence creation and disassembly. (...) Highly recommended!

I’ve been dreaming of a simple yet full-featured controller that would play well with my modular, and the KeyStep is the answer! It’s ideal… and I wouldn’t change a thing.

I'm bewildered it's taken manufactures so long to catch on to the control voltage craze. Now that we have there are a proliferation of exciting new instruments and synths, for bang for buck you can get a Beatstep Pro and stop looking. This is the most feature rich, high end step and gate sequencer in a small format, affordable (and substantial) package I've ever seen. I want about 20 of these!

The first I noticed about the Beatstep Pro was the build quality, super solid and the action of the knobs and the touch pads are great, gave me confidence that I can take this in the road every weekend and it will survive the savage airport luggage guys throwing my stuff around. In use it was so quick to get a groove down and also a melody that complimented the groove because it so easy to flick through the different sequencer sections. The connectivity is amazing too which makes it as useful in the studio as it is in a live setting ! Overall a brilliant sequencer to jam with but also to go really deep with the sequencing in the studio !

The Beat Step Pro is elegantly visual with a wonderfully tactile interface that is geared toward performance. Excellent communication feedback in the color-coded lights and a generous physical layout make interacting with the unit easy. I especially like the random function, which can breath new life into a set of sequenced notes by altering direction, volume and duration. And the touch-sensitive encoder knobs give you information in a polite and non-intrusive fashion.

The Beatstep Pro is now the central nervous system for all my modular, vintage, and digital equipment. It's expressive, intuitive and quick to navigate which helps immensely when writing. One of my favorite features is the probability and randomness knobs, which make simple drum patterns come alive with fills and stutters. It turns my modular drum rig into a wildly inventive drummer with a mind of its own.

I fell in love with a little new toy, the BeatStep. So simple and so effective. I hate complicated technology and the BeatStep is as simple as one would wish. Plus the benefit of great sequenzing and controlling possibilities including a CV/Gate connectivity to get my old synths back from the attic in the studio.

As a big fan of step sequencer, I was looking forward to discover the BeatStep Pro, and I was not disappointed: ease of use, versatility, and nice design! I'm using the step sequencer functions to control my analog synths (MS20, system 100 or Korg monopoly),it has integrated my studio but also my new live performance!.

Very good ergonomics, very intuitive, allows working without having to look at your computer, which makes it an excellent sequencer. I like the possibility of transposing several sequences at the same time which is a time saver. Sync with any type of synth works perfectly. PLUG AND PLAY !!!

The Beatstep Pro helped me control all my old analog gear from one central location. It was really fun to be able to control the instruments in new ways giving new life to some old stuff I had stopped using. It’s very intuitive and you really don’t need the instructions to get going. Nice work.

I've found the BeatStep Pro very useful. Since I do not use computer for sequencing, I found the piece very "hands on". Easy to manage and it adapts very well with all the other pieces in my studios. I would recommend BeatStep Pro for anyone that prefers to record music in real-time".
Very well done!

BeatStep Pro is the bridge between the old and new technology in terms of live sequencing and I love it! Few things that I like most are the many Gate and CV outputs. I managed to use some obscure gear, that I was not able to sequence before. I love the Shift function, which allows you to create crazy groove / shuffle on your beats and melodies, just by tweaking the knobs! Also let's not forget that we have three independent sequencers, which are very easy to program on the fly, by step sequencing or just tapping. I can`t wait to play with it more!

It's not a toy. The BeatStep is a solid step sequencer, easy to use and extremely fun to play with. Although it has plenty of applications, I do love it to go on with other analogue synthesizers as it allows me to get all of those incomparable musical nuances I was looking for.

It's been a long time that I was looking for a step sequencer that could integrate my live set up that is only made of vintage machines (TR 808 TR 909 TR 707 2*SH 101, Pro one, Juno 60 et TB 303). I've been testing some machines but none of them gave me as much satisfaction as the BeatStep Pro. With a great freedom of usage, the different modes of synchronizations, the ergonomy and the fonctionnalities, I can find all I was looking for without loosing the freedom of live performances. BeatStep Pro is perfect for live and studio. Its a real success.

This little bad boy is my new best mate in the studio AND on the road. Since I'm not a that big of a keyboard wizard it's more than this beat-maker needs to lay down some kick-ass bass lines and simpler harmonies / melodies. I can finally fit my entire gear in a single backpack when I've got some gigs to do with the Keystep. Oh, and I LOVE the pitch-strip!
