Arturia Keystep Pro Portable Keyboard Controller
- does not apply
The sequencer the world has been waiting for. KeyStep Pro gives keyboard players incredible sequencing and performance power in a compact, versatile controller.
However you prefer to write, create, perform, and play, KeyStep Pro gives you all the tools and options you need to do it with style.
A great way for keyboard players to perform on the fly. Pressing the “Record” button automatically puts KeyStep Pro in its Real-Time Recording mode. This lets you record a polyphonic sequence as you play, and either non-destructively overdub as you go, or rewrite the sequence as it progresses.
For the traditional step-sequencer fan, manually entering the steps one-by-one, either without the sequence running or while it plays in the background.
Focus on a step, and edit its content. Simple! You can even visualize the notes that are contained in the step on the keys above the LEDs. Select notes that you want to edit, then duplicate them, transpose, modify their length, whatever you like.
Nice and easy: simply hold a step and press keys to quickly edit the content of a step.
When switched to the “drum” option, Track 1 becomes a powerful drum sequencer, giving you 16 drum parts to play with. The first 8 have analog Gate outputs so you can bring drum modules to life. Press a key to select a drum part, then edit the sequence on the steps.
One of the best loved features on Arturia sequencers and drum machines, KeyStep Pro also includes polyrhythmic sequencing abilities, letting you choose different sequence lengths per drum, and per sequence track.
KeyStep Pro lets you quickly enter a specific chord shape, store it, and play it by holding a single note. Great for beginners and house music producers!
