You can get as specific as you want with the timings, without ever having to hit pause. I feel like I’m finally free from the piano roll! My workflow has never felt better. The BeatStep Pro was a game changer for me and Arturia have done it again here.

I really like all the improvisation functions, like roller and looper, and also probability functions, which brings a ton of organic flow into the live improvisation.

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!.

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.

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 literally been using the new KeyStep 37 non-stop since I got my hands on the wonderful shiny white beast. It does absolutely everything I'd want from a MIDI controller/arpeggiator and a hell of a lot more. This has easily flown straight to the top of my must-have tool list right now.

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!

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.

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.

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 Beatstep Pro is one of my go to tools in the studio. Not only is it a great melodic sequencer that allows to get quick unexpected ideas on the spot, it also has 8 trigger outs that I send to my hardware synths to sync arpeggiators, sequencers and gates. A truly versatile instrument.

I use the Beatstep Pro as a kind of Swiss Army knife of sequencing and syncing in my studio, lots of useful functions in such a small box and lots of creative possibilities to explore.

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 !!!

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!

I’m always puzzled that more companies don’t approach building modern synthesizer and controller tools the way that Arturia does. I have a pile of old machines and synthesizers which have various difficulties playing well with others, and I can always find some integrative solution with my Arturia things. I use the BeatStep Pro to control any number of things in here. I bought it primarily to have a modern intelligent sequencer with editable triggers but wind up grabbing it to solve problems constantly. I know that all these things are built to do some envisioned task, but the best thing I can say about all Arturia stuff is that, regardless of the depth of possibilities designed into the unit, they’re also incredibly simple and intuitive problem solving tools. Great CV/gate conversion, usability - and that’s the highest praise I can give, as someone who has spent decades staring at old gear and wondering how I can get it all to work together.

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.

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!

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.
