Beatstep Pro fits nicely in any studio. Used as a MIDI controller, it provides enough knobs, pads, transport controls for any use case. All of these controls are fully customizable, using the included MIDI Control Center application. The drum and melodic sequencers make it a perfect companion to any DAW, offering a new approach to composition.

You want to play live and need instruments designed with the performance in focus? BeatStep Pro is just that. Use pre-programmed patterns or record them in real-time, generate stunning fills with the touch sensitive looper/roller strip and add some unpredictability with the Randomness/Probability dedicated controls. Everything is at your fingertips

Sequences, or even entire projects can be changed in real-time, the MIDI and analog clock inputs and outputs ensure that everything stays in sync. All of this packed in one single well thought-out device.

BeatStep Pro does not generate sound by itself, but gives you the ultimate control over your sound generators. Fear not, it was designed it to be compatible with pretty much any hardware or computer based device.

The USB or the dedicated MIDI In and Out ports provide bi-directional MIDI connectivity. Control, sequence, and synchronize other equipment with BeatStep Pro.

Both melodic sequencers provide three 1/8" jack connectors: Two CV outputs for Pitch and Velocity, as well as a Gate output. Use these to connect to outboard analog gear such as a MiniBrute, a modular system or a vintage synthesizer with no MIDI connectivity.

Ease of Use
BeatStep Pro was designed to be easy to use. The sequencers are each associated with a color. Look at the back, the same colors help you plug your gear easily. More importantly, the step buttons light up in the same color as the current sequence, giving you instant feedback on what you are working on. BeatStep Pro is not about drop-down menus, double function buttons, complex editing. Each sequencer has its own display so you always know what sequence is playing.

Three modes of operation
    Melodic sequencer: BeatStep Pro features two melodic step sequencers. Record note pitch, length and velocity in real-time with the pads or an external keyboard and hear your sequence play back, quantized at the step resolution. You can also enter them in step mode using the touch-sensitive knobs and step buttons. Sequences can have up to 64 steps, there are 32 sequences per project and 16 projects. 

    Drum sequencer: Alongside the two monophonic melodic sequencers, BeatStep Pro also features a 16 track drum sequencer. Once again, these sequences can be recorded in real-time by banging the pads, or with a classic drum machine workflow, by entering steps. The knobs can be used to define the note length and velocity, but also to shift them from the grid quantization, in order to get exactly the kind of groove you want. 

    MIDI Controller: BeatStep Pro comes with touch-sensitive encoders. Simply brush any knob to know the value of the associated parameter. With an additional set of 16 pads and many transport controls you can configure the way you want, take control of your VST instruments like never before.
