Comments about Arturia BeatStep Pro Controller & Sequencer:
The Beatstep Pro is a powerhouse step sequencer that delivers immediate gratification. It took me a day or so to become acquainted with all it has to offer though I am admittedly still just scratching the surface.
For a year or so I've been trying out various hardware and software loopers and step sequencers. Nearly all of the software products I've tried required way too much configuration and it's frustrating how limiting it is to use a mouse to create sequences. I did manage to find a decent hardware looper but they don't always clock to MIDI very well and there's absolutely no way to modify a loop once it's been recorded.
The Beatstep Pro solves all those problems and you don't even need a computer to integrate it into your rig (though connecting it to one opens up even more possibilities). The build quality is top notch and it's refreshing to see that Arturia is committed to releasing bug fixes as well as adding new features through firmware releases. Bottom line, best purchase I've made in a while!
