You need a portable USB MIDI controller but also want a keyboard that provides a musical playing experience?
You have some MIDI modules you want to connect as well but don’t want the footprint of a large keyboard?
You have modular and analog gear you want to control via CV/GATEs? You want a step sequencer with polyphonic capability that can sync to your favorite modern and vintage gear?
If only a single piece of gear could do all of this…
Arturia KeyStep is a new breed of portable musical tool combining the functionalities of a keyboard controller with a polyphonic step sequencer to control both analog and digital devices, CV out for your analogue synths & other great features.
Arturia have incorporated their own patented 'Slimkey' keybed design - balancing the best features of compact mini-keys with the musicality of full-sized keys into this new keybed. The size, velocity and aftertouch of this new design provide the freedom of portability without sacrificing playability.
Built-in Step Sequencer & Arpeggiator
Arturia also designed a new polyphonic step-sequencer with 8 programmable memories that you can recall at the turn of knob. You can choose gate times and swing settings instantly to change the feel of your sequenced performance on the fly. They also included the ability to record, overdub, and transpose your sequences in real time and still play the keyboard live. With up to 8 Pattern Styles for the built-in Arpeggiator, KeyStep becomes a serious studio tool for creating ideas or playing live.
Hook Up and Play!
These features alone would make Arturia KeyStep the best portable keyboard controller on the market. But they take it further by giving you a wealth of connectivity options: USB MIDI (of course), standard MIDI in and out (check), clock sync and DIN sync jacks (yes!), and CV/GATE outputs, plus a separate, assignable modulation CV output that can be used with the mod wheel, velocity or aftertouch.
