It’s Arturia’s job to make sure that the products they bring users to perform at their best capacity, so users can enjoy the smoothest workflow. That’s why Arturia constantly works on firmware updates for their products: exciting improvements such as new features, improvements, and bug fixes.

The teams have worked on analyzing feedback on their latest controller, KeyStep Pro, and delivering a firmware update. The update includes workflow improvements and bug fixes for the most part.


  • Reworked MIDI In Implementation
    Notes sent to the track’s input MIDI channels are now processed as if these were played on the KeyStep Pro keyboard and transmitted to the MIDI and CV Outputs.
  • More recording flexibility with the count in
    When recording in real-time, notes played prior to the recording are maintained after the start and are now recorded as well.
  • Record several patterns on the fly
    Patterns can now be changed while record is ON. This lets you build several patterns at one time leaving more room for your creative flow when jamming.
  • Drum track time division per pattern
    The drum track time division is now stored in each drum pattern and recalled when changing from one pattern to another.
  • Sync Auto mode improvement
    KeyStep Pro is now able to jump back to its internal clock after having been synced to an external source.
  • Sync handling improvements
    Synchronization accuracy has been improved and now supports all clock rate formats.
  • New screen feedback messages
    For some actions, new screen messages have been added to make the workflow more intuitive
  • Bug fixes
    The update also comes with various bug fixes and workflow improvements. For more details, check out the release notes.
