OVERVIEW

Play polyphonic arpeggios, sync with any source, and control your hardware synths in style.

Small but mighty, the Arturia KeyStep redefines what’s possible with a small-format sequencer. Featuring a 32 slim-key keybed with aftertouch, musicians can use it to create rich, polyphonic step sequences with real-time recording and rewriting. Letting you layer up to eight notes per step, and with sequences up to 64 steps long, the only limit is your imagination. KeyStep packs in many other features usually found in sequencers several times its price, including user memories, an 8-mode arpeggiator, playing a melody over a sequence, a chord mode, and comprehensive connectivity including CV gate and MIDI.

Small enough to fit into everyone’s set-up, but powerful enough to revolutionize your workflow, KeyStep is ideal for performance as well as studio experimentation. Connect to practically any hardware or software thanks to its great MIDI, CV/Gate, and sync connectivity. KeyStep lets you create polyphonic sequences on a virtual instrument in your DAW, sync with a modular drum machine using its CV connectivity, and play a melody at the same time with through an outboard analog synth.

The time has come for you to take full control of your studio. Whether vintage analog synths or tomorrow’s virtual instruments, KeyStep Black Edition has the power to tame the beast. Packed with features to inspire your creativity, KeyStep lets you create polyphonic, evolving sequences up to 8 notes deep and 64 steps long. Combined with its ability to connect to practically any electronic instrument, you’ll be able to do things you never thought possible. Create thick, lush arpeggios, record a sequence in real-time, rewrite it, edit the swing, gate length, and play a melody simultaneously on its high quality 32-note keyboard.


FEATURES
  • Slim-key keybed with velocity and aftertouch
  • Sequencer mode: 8 polyphonic step-sequences with Rest, Tie, and Legato note entry
  • Arpeggiator mode: Up, down, inclusive, exclusive, random, note order and more

Comments about Arturia KeyStep Limited Black Edition:

I was so impressed by the original (white) KeyStep, that I couldn't resist purchasing this Black Edition when it became available. To me, KeyStep was one of the best electronic music products of 2016. The Black Edition is no different. Its features, size and (now) black finish make it a perfect companion to synths like my Roland System-1m and System 500, and the upcoming Novation Peak.
