B-Step by Monoplugs is a melodic chord-based step sequencer (16 step/16 bar) that enables users to effortlessly create melodies, counter melodies, and bass lines. I use it for song writing in a home studio as well as live improv in a classroom setting. It reminds me of the add-on step sequencer I bought for my Roland S-550 sampler a while back. Long after I sold the sampler, I thought about how useful that sequencer was. .. many song foundations were created with that step sequencer. But alas, I finally found something better! My B-Step workflow features a MacBook Pro with either the built-in trackpad or my MIDI controller. I've heard great things about B-Step's Launchpad integration, but sadly I prematurely sold mine. This must also be amazing to use with a touchscreen. The B-Step interface is neat, clean, cool looking, easy to use, and inspires creativity — it's a lot of fun! It's great for simple mono melodies and riffs, but really shines as a chord progression designer via the chord editor. Individual note, bar, and global parameters can be tweaked in vivo (duration, velocity, octave, etc.).


  • Clean, user-friendly GUI with a few color profiles.
  • CPU friendly.
  • Drag n' Drop MIDI.
  • Plugin + Standalone.
  • Price.
  • Innovative, responsive developers.


  • B-Step is addictive. Are there any 12-step programs for 16-step sequencer junkies?


I highly recommend B-Step to any and all eMusicians, producers, film/game scorers, DJs, and anyone else looking to add an amazing creative tool to their MIDI toolkit. This plugin/app not only plays well with others, it was clearly designed to augment and enhance your digital audio workflow! And, the price is insanely cheap. It's a MUST GET for any tracker, who appreciates the freedom and inspiration of a powerful step sequencer. Tommy Zai gives B-Step two sweetly programmed thumbs up. Thank you, Monoplugs, for developing a fantastic bit of audio software.
