Much more than just a USB pad controller, the Arturia BeatStep is ready to serve as a master sequencer for your MIDI or CV-equipped hardware. You have 16 velocity- and pressure-sensitive pads, perfect for both finger drumming and expressive playing. Assign the 16 encoders to whatever parameters you like, and save up to 16 of your custom setups. Best of all, a built-in step sequencer lets you program 16 different sequences with 16 steps each, ready to control your MIDI or CV gear all by itself. Electronic musicians at Sweetwater agree, the Arturia BeatStep offers incredible creative potential for your synths and drum machines.
