Arturia Keystep

The Arturia Keystep brings you a compact MIDI keyboard that combines the functionalities of a midi controller, with a polyphonic step sequencer.

Keystep: Portable, Yet Powerful

Boasting a size that’s small enough to fit into any setup, but also powerful enough to revolutionize the workflow of any producer. What’s more, the Keystep offers all the inputs and outputs you need to be able to connect practically any external hardware or software. Sporting MIDI, CV/Gate, and Sync connectivity, you’ll have no trouble simultaneously creating polyphonic sequences in your daw; syncing with a modular drum machine using CV connectivity, and playing a melody with an outboard analog synth.

What’s more, the Keystep is packed with features that are sure to inspire your creativity. Allowing you to create polyphonic, evolving sequences up to 8 note deep and 64 steps long. As well as the ability to connect up to nearly any electronic instrument in your arsenal. Above all, Keystep allows you to do things in the studio that you never thought were possible.

Polyphonic Step Sequencer

In terms of the polyphonic step sequencer, the Keystep gives you 8 programmable memories that you can easily recall when you want by simply turning the knob. Allowing you to choose gate times and swing settings instantly, as well as change the feel of your performance on the fly. Not to mention, Keystep also gives you the ability to record, overdub, include and transpose your sequences in real-time. All while still playing the keyboard live.

Inputs & Outputs

If you’re not already convinced the Keystep is one of the best portable controllers on the market; Arturia takes it a step further. Offering a number of useful connectivity options including USB MIDI, MIDI I/O, Clock Sync, and DIN sync, and CV/Gate outputs. As well as a separate, assignable modulation CV output you can use along with the mod wheel, velocity, and aftertouch. Not only that, but the Keystep comes complete with 4 CV/Gate cables; so you can hook up all your synths, modules and drum machines straight out of the box.

Finally & completing the array of innovative features, the Arturia Keystep comes complete with a copy of Ableton Live Lite. Giving you a hands-on workflow, time-stretching and pitch-shifting functions, as well as an endless amount of studio-quality effects. So you can be sure you’ll be able to make and release professional quality tracks in no time!
