Arturia BeatStep Controller & Sequencer

The Arturia BeatStep Controller & Sequencer is a combination pad/encoder controller and analog-style step sequencer with an unlimited number of potential uses and setup options, thanks to its simultaneous USB, MIDI, and CV/Gate connection capabilities. While matching your musical environment perfectly, the BeatStep is compact, rugged, and the perfect companion on the road or in the studio.

The Arturia BeatStep Controller & Sequencer is a compact control PowerHouse designed to provide nearly endless possibilities. A degree of functionality and performance never seen before in a portable pad controller. The Arturia BeatStep is highly versatile, capable of triggering clips in applications like Ableton Live, playing drums with BFD or EZDrummer, or tweaking synth parameters. Or doing all of those at once! The Arturia BeatStep is also a 16-step analog sequencer, and it’s like a force of nature when it comes to creating interesting musical phrases for analog synthesizers, MIDI drum machines, keyboards and DAWs. Its advanced connectivity interfaces easily with a computer or iPad® using USB, a drum module with MIDI, or the CV/Gate inputs on an analog synthesizer.

Step Sequencer
In SEQ mode the pads become toggles for each step in your sequence. The 16 encoders will adjust pitch for the associated step. 16 memories allow for instant recall of your favorite patterns while the pad scale modes, sequence playback modes and time division functions allow for realtime performance changes. On top of all that it has MIDI, USB and CV/GATE connectivity, giving you a sequencer that will work with all types of gear, including analog synths, software instruments, and MIDI hardware.

Percussion Controller
With 16 velocity- and pressure-sensitive pads, the Arturia BeatStep is the perfect compact percussion instrument. The ultra-sensitive pads allow for great dynamic performances. The 16 encoders can be assigned to adjust various parameters for further real-time control over your drum sounds.

General Purpose Control Surface
The Arturia BeatStep pads can be configured to send MIDI note on/off messages, MMC commands, Program and Bank changes, or serve as MIDI CC buttons. With 16 encoders, 16 pads/buttons and 16 presets, there are as many ways to use Arturia BeatStep as there are live gigs and studio environments. You can trigger clips in Ableton Live or use the encoders to adjust the effects in your favorite DJ app. The transport buttons can be MMC controls or send MIDI CCs to start and stop your DAW. It can be the MIDI Clock master or slave to an external clock. Using an iPad and a camera connection kit, you can turn Arturia BeatStep into one of the most flexible iPad app controllers ever.
