Arturia BeatStep Step Sequencer and Controller
The Arturia Beatstep is a compact and powerful controller and sequencer with USB, MIDI and CV/Gate outputs allowing it to control pretty much any synth around.
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.
General purpose control surface
The BeatStep pads can be configured to be MIDI CC buttons or assigned to send Program and Bank Change messages as well as note-on and note-off messages. With the 16 encoders, 16 pads/buttons and 16 preset memories, you can come up with multiple ways to use the BeatStep in any live or studio environment. You can trigger clips in Ableton Live or use the encoders to adjust effects settings in your favourite DJ app.
The transport buttons can be MMC controls or MIDI CC to start and stop your DAW. It can be the MIDI Clock master or slave to external clock.
Using an iPad with the Camera Connection kit, you can turn the BeatStep into one of the most flexible iPad app controllers as well.
