NAMM 2020: Arturia debuts KeyStep Pro controller and sequencer

This controller is ideal for those who prefer keys to pads

Arturia is set to launch its latest MIDI controller and polyphonic sequencer, the KeyStep Pro, at NAMM 2020.

Following in the foot Steps – see what we did there – of BeatStep, BeatStep Pro and KeyStep, KeyStep Pro will take your studio experience or stage performance to the next level.

The controller has 37 keys covering three octaves, and its multiple connection ports allow simultaneous control over your modular rigs, outboard synths, and software. It has four polyphonic sequencer tracks, including the possibility to use Track one as a 16-part integrated drum sequencer.

Furthermore, each of the four tracks can trigger 16 patterns, with every pattern containing up to 64 steps and 16 notes per step. You can also use Chains to link up 16 patterns to create whole songs or split your set into sections. Scenes can be used to switch between sets of sequences and Projects enable you to load, duplicate, edit and save your work. This controller is especially suitable if you prefer keys to pads.

KeyStep Pro will be available in Spring 2020 at €339, and pre-orders are available now. Arturia can be found at booth 11920 at NAMM 2020.
