Robust and reliable
4 independent sequencers, controlling whatever synth, module, or drum machine you want.
16 patterns per track. Each sequencer pattern can be up to 64 steps long, and contain 16 notes per step.
Link up to 16 patterns together to create whole songs or sections of your set.
Snapshots of all the sequences within a pattern, letting you instantly switch between sets of sequences.
Everything in one place. Load, duplicate, tweak, edit, and save for later in its onboard memory.
This isn’t just some flimsy MIDI keyboard, we know that KeyStep Pro will become part of your creative identity, so we made sure to make it something special.
The rigid metal baseplate adds that “reliably heavy” feel without making it feel like a burden to carry; the knobs are rubberized and wobble-free, so they don’t slip at a crucial point in your performance; the 37-note slim keyboard has the same satisfying action as the original KeyStep, but with extended range; the OLED displays are crisp, clear, and vibrant, so you can read them under stage lights with no problem.
Traveling LEDs let you follow the sequences as they play, so you’ll always be able to get a quick visual reference of where you are. We even included a handy little metronome speaker on the unit itself to give you instant tempo reference, should you want it.
With KeyStep Pro, everything is just right.
Limitless creative options
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!
