Arturia Releases Keystep Pro Midi Keyboard and Controller

KeyStep Pro addresses keyboard performers that require a ridiculous sequencing and show power in a compact, adaptable controller. 

The Arturia KeyStep Pro is a 37-key MIDI controller and multi-channel polyphonic sequencer. All in a small footprint on your desk or close to your semi-modular, AE Modular or eurorack rack. The device will empower musicians to take full control of their modular rigs, outboard synths, and software studio all at the same time. The 4 autonomous polyphonic sequencer tracks give you full control over your instruments, and Track 1 can also operate as a 16-part integrated drum sequencer. It’s amazingly intuitive, has exceptional connectivity, and encourages the artist to make combined performances a breeze.

If you prefer keys to pads, you’ll love KeyStep Pro. It sports a great-feeling 3-octave keyboard with velocity sensitivity and aftertouch. Letting you fully articulate your musical ideas, this expressive little sequencer truly puts your whole music-making ecosystem at your fingertips. Arturia’s designers studied the way musicians actually used their Step controllers and created KeyStep Pro to remove the barriers between you and the music you want to create.
