Expansive Functionality

The Arturia BeatStep offers a range of functionality and performance features. The BeatStep features 16 assignable encoders, 16 pads/buttons, and 16 presets, providing you with a flexible pad controller. The BeatStep allows you to trigger audio clips using the pads within software environments such as Ableton Live, or play drums with FXpansion BFD and Toontrack EZdrummer. Use the pads to trigger clips, then use the 16 encoders to control parameters and settings, allowing for real-time control. The 16 pads are velocity and pressure-sensitive. They can be used to create dynamic percussion performances, and are conveniently brightly lit, enabling you to see and perform in low lighting situations. Whether you are working with your DAW, VST instrument or effect, drum software, DJ app, MIDI synth, or analog gear, the BeatStep gives you the control you need.

Portable Pad Controller For Studio & On Stage

The BeatStep is ideal for both on stage and creating music in the studio. In sequencer mode the pads become each step in your sequence, whilst the encoders allow you to adjust pitch. The ultra-sensitive pads allow for dynamic performances, allowing you to play drums, and trigger sequences on-the-fly. Up to 16 sequence patterns can be saved and instantly recalled. The Arturia BeatStep can also be used as a general purpose control surface. The pads can be configured to be MIDI CC buttons, or can be assigned to send program and bank change messages, as well as note messages. Its compact, portable design makes it easily transportable, allowing you to take it from studio to stage effortlessly.
