Arturia BeatStep USB MIDI Drum Sequencer - Black Edition
Versatile, compact and rugged, the Arturia BeatStep is the perfect controller and sequencer for on the road or in the studio. Designed with versatility in mind, the BeatStep fulfills multiple use cases for a wide variety of musicians, whether you’re controlling your DAW, VST instruments or effects, drum software through to even analog gear with CV/Gate inputs. To top it all off, there’s even a built in step sequencer. The possibilities are nearly endless with the Arturia BeatStep.
BeatStep is both a pad/knob controller AND a step sequencer. The 16 pads are both pressure and velocity sensitive, capturing the nuances of your performance. The best part is that you can run both the controls and step sequencer at the same time. You can have the step sequencer play an external synth whilst controlling your DAW or VST’s with the knobs and pads.
Arturia’ MIDI Control Center software makes it incredibly simple to edit MIDI setups and sequences to unleash the maximum potential from this compact powerful device. It also makes exporting presets easy, perfect for creating backups or sharing your favourites.
