BeatStep Pro features two melodic step sequencers. Record note pitch, length and velocity in real-time with the pads or an external keyboard and hear your sequence play back, quantized at the step resolution or additionally you can also enter them in step mode using the touch-sensitive knobs and step buttons.
Alongside the two monophonic melodic sequencers, BeatStep Pro also features a 16 track drum sequencer. Once again, these sequences can be recorded in real-time by banging the pads, or with a classic drum machine workflow, by entering steps. The knobs can be used to define the note length and velocity, but also to shift them from the grid quantization, in order to get exactly the kind of groove you want.
Beatstep Pro fits nicely in any studio. Used as a MIDI controller, it provides enough knobs, pads, transport controls for any use. All of these controls are fully customisable, using the included MIDI Control Center application. The drum and melodic sequencers make it a perfect companion to any DAW, offering a new approach to composition.
