The success of the Black Edition MIDI controllers Beatstep, Beatstep Pro and Keystep was so great that Arturia decided to re-launch them again!
At SuperBooth 2017, Arturia announced the Black Edition MIDI Controllers Beatstep, Beatstep Pro & Keystep. These were quickly a huge success and demand is still very large today. After the units had sold out on every shop, many musicians were disappointed to not get these controllers in black anymore. Of course, black looks better than white. Because of this, Arturia has today announced that they re-launched the black editions and all three MIDI controllers are available very soon again in black!
ARTURIA To Reissue Black Edition Beatstep, Beatstep Pro, And Keystep
French audio hardware and software creators Arturia are reissuing the popular “Black Edition” versions of their award-winning range of MIDI and CV sequencing controllers. Known and loved throughout the industry, Arturia’s trio of DAW controlling, step-sequencing hybrids are now available again in a sleek black finish. Offering something for every musician, the Step range synchronizes the analog and digital worlds, letting musicians control hardware instruments, outboard modules, virtual instruments, and recording software simultaneously. Each Black Edition model comes with a unique bundle of extras:
KeyStep – Back To Black
This small format keyboard sequencer features a 32-note slim-key keybed with aftertouch, and lets you sync with & control any software or hardware instrument through its comprehensive connectivity, including USB, MIDI in & out, CV gate, and Sync in & out. Create evolving, polyphonic sequences up to 64 steps long, with real-time recording and rewriting. Bonus: 3CV/Gate cables.
BeatStep – The Black Heart Beats
Packing 16 pressure and velocity sensitive pads and 16 rotary knobs into a neat package, BeatStep is an affordable way for musicians to get creative with simple monophonic step-sequences. Able to control outboard synths and virtual instruments alike, BeatStep’s versatility also makes it a great DAW controller. Bonus: 2CV/Gate cables + Analog Lab, SEM-V, and Ableton Live Lite software worth almost $300!
BeatStep Pro – Rhythm Of The Night
Arturia’s cutting edge, 3-part step sequencer now has a sleek new look. Featuring two separate melodic sequencers and a dedicated 16-part drum sequencer, BeatStep Pro gives the adventurous musician a powerful palette of tools to create dynamic, exciting tracks without the need for a computer screen. Bonus: 14 CV/Gate cables.
Arturia Black Edition BeatStep ($99/99€), BeatStep Pro ($249/249€) and KeyStep ($119/119€) are now shipping and available very soon!
