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 Ableton Live Lite and some cool Arturia stickers.

BeatStep Black Edition
The Black Heart Beats

The Arturia BeatStep is a space-saving, flexible controller that gives musicians and producers access to their DAW with totally assignable pads and knobs, becoming the perfect precision weapon when it comes to finger drumming and sample triggering, BeatStep lets you unite your hardware and software instruments with its built-in step-sequencer.

A streamlined, yet versatile hybrid controller, BeatStep is loaded with features and functions that will give your creativity the boost it needs. Sporting 16 velocity & pressure sensitive pads for programming and performance, transport buttons for playback control, and 16 rotary knobs to tweak the parameters of your 16-step, monophonic sequence. BeatStep is able to take control of your DAW with its MIDI/USB connection, and control outboard gear simultaneously using its CV/Gate outputs.

The special BeatStep Black Edition comes with an amazing bundle of software that seems almost too good to be true! It comes with the full version of Analog Lab, the full version of SEM V, Ableton Live Lite, as well as 2 CV cables to get you syncing up your studio straight out of the box.

BeatStep Pro Black Edition
Rhythm Of The Night

For the adventurous performer, nothing comes close to the Arturia BeatStep Pro. Now available for a limited time in stylish black, BeatStep Pro has been designed to become the center of your music world. Perform using your vintage monosynths, outboard modules, and drum machines all at the same time using its comprehensive CV/Gate connections, all while controlling virtual instruments and syncing with your DAW via MIDI/USB.

Astoundingly powerful yet quick to master, BeatStep Pro features everything you could want from a standalone sequencer, combining 2 independent monophonic sequencers for melodies and another that's dedicated to drums. For melodies, the BeatStep Pro offers real-time transposition, recording, and rewriting with step tie, slide and velocity or gate length knob-based editing. For drums, BeatStep Pro lets you create percussive patterns using 16 independent drum sequences, all of which can be arranged and honed into a dynamic live performance using the roller, looper, and vast array of parameter controls.

With up to 64 steps per pattern, plus the ability to chain them together, you’ll be able to experiment like never before. BeatStep Pro can also act as an in-depth MIDI controller, letting you freely assign knobs, buttons, and pads to control your virtual instruments or DAW.

To make the most of its outstanding connectivity, the BeatStep Black Edition comes with a bundle of 14 CV cables.

Whatever your set-up, whatever your style, Arturia’s iconic Step range will inspire your creativity, and help take your music to exciting, undiscovered new places.
