BeatStep Pro Performance Sequencer B-Stock
The Arturia BeatStep Pro is an intuitive and highly capable performance tool that affords expressive creative control over MIDI, USB, CV/Gate, and DIN Sync gear.
The unit can drive an entire performance, offering powerful control over VSTs, external synthesizers, drum machines, and even iPad apps. It contains several sequencers, each with 64 steps per sequence and 16 sequences per project. There’s even an additional drum sequencer that affords 16 individual sequencing tracks that can be recorded in real time via the unit’s pads or dedicated step buttons. Additionally, the unit contains numerous performance enhancing effects, including a looper with an accompanying touch strip, a randomizer, and even swing settings.
