You need a portable USB MIDI controller but also want a keyboard that provides a musical playing experience? You have some MIDI modules you want to connect as well but don’t want the footprint of a large keyboard? You have modular and analog gear you want to control via CV/GATEs? You want a step sequencer with polyphonic capability that can sync to your favorite modern and vintage gear? If only a single piece of gear could do all of this…

The Arturia Keystep Keyboard Controller & Sequencer combines a responsive 32-note keyboard with appregiator, sequencer and host of digital and analogue connections.

Arturia’s Keystep provides an extremely playable 32-note keybed with mini keys that include velocity and after-touch to capture every nuance of a performance. Further controls comprise of shift and hold buttons that operate sustain, swing and gate values, plus touch strips for pitch and modulation as well as a useful chord play feature.

The Arturia Keystep also features a dedicated appregiator and sequencer section that offers excellent creativity and control. With eight voices available per step, the polyphonic sequencer can create harmonic patterns of up to 64 steps. The built-in appregiator comes with eight different patterns, making for interesting and unique motif and riff creation.

The versatility of the compact Keystep keyboard controller continues with a healthy number of different connections, a normal USB connection is available for digital connections to your favourite DAW and software, plus the inclusion of standard MIDI in & out ports for maximum compatibility.
