Arturia's Beatstep offers a new degree of functionality and performance for a portable pad controller. BeatStep is highly versatile, capable of triggering clips in such applications as Ableton Live, playing drums in conjunction with such applications as BFD or EZDrummer. But BeatStep is also a 16-step analogue sequencer for creating all kinds of musical phrases to be sent to analogue synthesizers, MIDI drum machines, MIDI keyboard devices, or computer programs. Its vast connectivity allows you to connect the BeatStep to a computer or iPAD using USB, a drum module using MIDI or an analogue synthesizer equipped with CV/GATE. BeatStep is truly flexible and opens up new avenues of hands-on creative control for the contemporary musician.
In SEQ mode, your pads become enables for each step in your sequence. The 16 encoders will adjust pitch for the associated step. 16 memories allow for instant recall of your favourite patterns while the pad scale modes, seq playback modes and time division functions allow for real- time performance changes.
Add to all this, MIDI, USB and CV/GATE connectivity and you have a sequencer that can be used with all types of gear, including analogue synths , software instruments, and MIDI hardware.
With 16 velocity and pressure sensitive pads, the BeatStep is the perfect compact percussion instrument. The ultra sensitive pads allow for great dynamic performances. The 16 encoders can be assigned to adjust parameters that allow further real-time control over your drum sounds.
