Has anyone received theirs yet?
No, and by the time they ship it Arturia might already have a MKII version out :x
That's unfortunate. Are there any good reasons for it stated by Arturia, or is it one of those silent treatment situations?
Take care :wink:

I didn't order from Arturia directly, but a local shop. Who knows when they will receive a shipment and how many others have pre-ordered as well...

Big step up in build quality compared with the original Keystep. Easy operation. I haven't gone deep at all with it so far - mainly using it as a master keyboard for making sounds. What I really like so far is that you can re-order the order of the notes in a pattern with a simple shift-button press, which often gives an interesting alternative take on what you recorded.

I know that there is lots of moaning about bugs over at Gearslutz, but I haven't run into any showstoppers yet and I'm thinking of getting a second one. Really like it.

Did you have any timing issues? How do you connect the KSP? It seems like most of the issues over at gearslutz are somehow related to USB-Midi...

I haven't tried that to be honest. I am using it with USB yes, but mainly as a master keyboard. If the guys at Gearslutz says there is a latency it probably is. I'm using it so far on a very simple level.
