***This limited edition version includes 3 CV patch cables, Analog Lab Lite, and Ableton Live Lite!
Small but mighty, the Arturia KeyStep redefines what’s possible with a small-format sequencer. Featuring a 32 slim-key keybed with aftertouch, musicians can use it to create rich, polyphonic step sequences with real-time recording and rewriting. Letting you layer up to eight notes per step, and with sequences up to 64 steps long, the only limit is your imagination. KeyStep packs in many other features usually found in sequencers several times its price, including user memories, an 8-mode arpeggiator, playing a melody over a sequence, a chord mode, and comprehensive connectivity including CV gate and MIDI.
Small enough to fit into everyone’s set-up, but powerful enough to revolutionize your workflow, KeyStep is ideal for performance as well as studio experimentation. Connect to practically any hardware or software thanks to its great MIDI, CV/Gate, and sync connectivity. KeyStep lets you create polyphonic sequences on a virtual instrument in your DAW, sync with a modular drum machine using its CV connectivity, and play a melody at the same time with through an outboard analog synth.
The time has come for you to take full control of your studio. Whether vintage analog synths or tomorrow’s virtual instruments, KeyStep Black Edition has the power to tame the beast. Packed with features to inspire your creativity, KeyStep lets you create polyphonic, evolving sequences up to 8 notes deep and 64 steps long. Combined with its ability to connect to practically any electronic instrument, you’ll be able to do things you never thought possible. Create thick, lush arpeggios, record a sequence in real-time, rewrite it, edit the swing, gate length, and play a melody simultaneously on its high quality 32-note keyboard.
