$399.00

If you prefer keys to pads, you’re in for a treat. KeyStep Pro features a great-feeling 3 octave keyboard with velocity sensitivity and aftertouch. Letting you fully articulate your musical ideas, this expressive little sequencer truly puts the power at your fingertips.

KeyStep Pro works the way you want it to, and removes the barriers between you and the music you want to create.

Powerful performance controls

Our sequencers can be seen all over the world, and are loved by top artists, studios, and amateur producers alike. KeyStep Pro makes gigging easy and fun, with instant and intuitive access to inspiring performance features. Multi-mode arpeggiator, randomness, easy chord mode, and real-time recording for creating on the fly. The crisp OLED displays and LED-illuminated controls will help you see it all in the dark, too!


Tracks

4 independent sequencers, controlling whatever synth, module, or drum machine you want.

Patterns

16 patterns per track. Each sequencer pattern can be up to 64 steps long, and contain 16 notes per step.

Chains

Link up to 16 patterns together to create whole songs or sections of your set.

Scenes

Snapshots of all the sequences within a pattern, letting you instantly switch between sets of sequences.

Projects

Everything in one place. Load, duplicate, tweak, edit, and save for later in its onboard memory.


MIDI channels per project

You can now determine specific tracks’ output MIDI channels per project, for easy navigation of multiple MIDI devices in performances and sessions.

MIDI input enhancements

MIDI In information has also been expanded so that pitch wheel, mod wheel and sustain messages are transmitted to their respective tracks/channels.

Expanded Mod CV functions

The individual Mod CV outputs can now send data using either the velocity, aftertouch, or modwheel output values.

Transpose refinements

Transpose now also applies to arpeggios currently playing, and Transpose Compensation keeps newly-recorded notes in key with the sequence when transpose is cleared.

Tie / Rest behaviour

The Tie / Rest button’s functionality has been improved to allow extending steps in a more intuitive and familiar way.

Workflow upgrades

We’ve expanded a number of workflow functions, including improved Quick Editing, instantly switching drum mutes off, streamlined page erasing, intuitive note overlapping, and more.

Streamlined utility functions

We’ve updated a number of essential utility functions, including Factory Reset, MIDI channel shortcuts, refined screen & LED visual feedback, and much more.

Various bug fixes

Based on user feedback and extensive testing, we’ve improved a number of functions to make KeyStep Pro more reliable and efficient.

Unite your gear

Your ever-growing collection of boutique modular gear, vintage synths, and software instruments can finally perform in unison, thanks to the jaw-dropping connectivity KeyStep Pro has to offer. 4 CV, Gate and Mod outputs, 8 dedicated drum Gate outputs, Clocks, MIDI in, 2 MIDI outs, a solo metronome output, sustain input to let you get expressive with your performance, and USB for easy power and DAW/softsynth control.
