How do you unite your favorite analog synths, cutting-edge virtual instruments, and old-school DIN Sync drum machine into one comprehensive sequencing rig? It's simple! All you need is an Arturia BeatStep Pro sequencer. This remarkable piece of music-creation hardware includes a pair of melodic mono sequencers and a flexible drum sequencer. The melodic sequencers both provide you with up to 64 steps per sequence, and with a total of 16 sequences per project and space for 16 projects onboard, you're not going to run out of sequencing space any time soon. And that's not even counting the 16-channel drum sequencer.

 

THE ULTIMATE SEQUENCING POWERHOUSE

BeatStep Pro is unique: a world-class controller, performance sequencer and composing tool all in one very connectible package.

BeatStep Pro is unlike anything you have ever used on stage or in the studio. Wherever you are, whatever gear is available, taking control of the creative process has never been so easy.

Step into the spotlight

Two independent melodic sequencers and a drum sequencer put thousands of on-the-spot ideas at your disposal.

With BeatStep Pro you are master of the performance, taking full control of virtual devices, analog and digital instruments, drum machines and iPad apps all at once. 16 Projects are instantly accessible, each of which contains 16 sequences per melodic sequencer and 16 patterns for the drum sequencer. That’s over 4000 possible combinations per Project!

Each melodic sequence can be up to 64 steps long with individual articulation of pitch, velocity and gate time per note. These are the most powerful step sequencers ever made. The drum sequencer has 16 separate tracks per sequence (one per pad). Record in real time from the pads or use the step buttons for that classic drum machine workflow.

Perfect performance

BeatStep Pro brings together the most unique and sought-after performance effects available: a looper with a touch strip, a randomizer, swing settings and a slew of hands-on controls that will make your performances the stuff of legend.

Take control

Control mode lets you trigger clips in your favorite DAW, play sounds from an external device or make magic with your plug-in of choice. Take your music from idea to reality with BeatStep Pro.
