NAMM 2015: Arturia announces BeatStep Pro - Controller and Dynamic Performance Step Sequencer

Arturia has announced BeatStep Pro, an all-new controller and dynamic performance step sequencer, at The NAMM Show 2015, January 22-25 in Anaheim, California.

Having introduced BeatStep, the compact controller and step sequencer at NAMM 2014, this year Arturia is taking things several steps further forward by introducing its bigger brother, BeatStep Pro. As an all-new controller and dynamic performance step sequencer, BeatStep Pro has been designed to professionally perform — onstage or in the studio, whether you're working with MIDI-, USB-, CV/Gate-, or DIN Sync-equipped gear, BeatStep Pro. Its CLOCK connections can work as a 1:1 clock with an external clock generator or DIN Sync, so you can be sure that anything and everything you've got connected will play happily in time together leaving you to focus your energies on creative performance.

BeatStep Pro features 16 touch-sensitive knobs for entering of pitch, gate, velocity amounts, and timing shifts per step. It includes two independent (colour-coded) monophonic step sequencers, each with dedicated displays to show the current playback position and bank length of the currently selected sequence. SEQUENCER 1 and SEQUENCER 2 have been greatly expanded with up to 64 steps per sequence, 16 sequences per project, and 16 projects. Each sequencer has its own 1V/Oct CV (Control Voltage) and (10V) GATE outputs to connect to suitably-equipped analogue monosynths, such as Arturia's MiniBrute or MicroBrute, together with a separate VELO (Velocity) output to allow for even more possibilities when working with a modular synth system setup.

An additional DRUM sequencer allows for 16 separate tracks of sequencing. Record in quantised realtime via the 16 pressure sensitive pads or use the 16 step buttons for a classic drum machine workflow. When working in SEQ1 and SEQ2 mode those pads can control pitch transposition as well as accessing various musical scales — such as Chromatic, Major, Minor, Dorian, Mixolydian, Harm Minor, Blues, and also a User setting — while the DRUM sequencer itself also has eight DRUM GATES at its disposal (to send gate outputs from the corresponding pads for triggering external devices).

BeatStep Pro is also a controller. Switching from PROJECT to CONTROL MODE means users can trigger clips in their favourite DAW (Digital Audio Workstation), play drum sounds from an external module, or adjust parameters in their favourite plug-in.

BeatStep Pro has an added arsenal of performance effects such as a realtime ROLLER/LOOPER touch strip; PROBABILITY, RANDOMNESS, and SWING settings; plus other hands-on controls. It comes complete with a Kensington lock to ensure that it stays with its rightful owner.

BeatStep Pro will be shipping in Spring 2015 and available to buy directly from Arturia online or through the company's global network of dealers and retailers for €249.00 / $299.00.
