Arturia KeyStep Pro MIDI Keyboard



Arturia KeyStep Pro Controller & Sequencer

 

 

The MIDI keyboard could be your new studio hub!

The Arturia KeyStep Pro is the latest addition to Arturia’s controller range. The latest ‘KeyStep’ device pairs a 37-key controller with a four-track polyphonic sequence. This new controller combines elements of Arturia’s existing KeyStep and BeatStep Pro devices.

The KeyStep Pro features a 37-key MIDI keyboard with velocity sensitivity and aftertouch, equipped with a multitrack sequencer and multiple of I/O options. Additionally, there are pitch and mod touchstrips on the left of the keyboard for extra expression, and a sustain pedal input on the rear.

Inside, there are four polyphonic sequencer tracks onboard, allowing the KeyStep Pro to take control of multiple instruments at once. Each sequencer track can capture patterns of up-to 64 steps. Onboard memory allows for 16 patterns to be saved to each of these tracks, which can then be chained together to create extended arrangements, and each track allows for a polyphony of up to 16 notes per-step. In addition, Track 1 can act as an integrated 16-part drum sequencer. On the analog side, the KeyStep Pro offers pitch, velocity/mod and gate outputs for each of its four tracks. There are also eight individual drum gate outputs, plus analogue clock in, out and reset out ports.

And in order to make the most of these capabilities, the Arturia KeyStep Pro also features two MIDI Outputs, plus a MIDI In, which are joined by a USB MIDI port for sequencing and controlling virtual instruments, and a metronome output with its own level control.

In short, the KeyStep Pro combines all the best elements of the BeatStep Pro and the KeyStep in one package. And yet it is still compact.

The Arturia KeyStep Pro is now available.

    The MIDI keyboard is designed for use with both hardware and software, combining MIDI, USB and analog CV/gate outputs, allowing for connection to hardware instruments, modular systems and plugins/DAWs simultaneously.
