The Arturia KeyStep Midi Controller Features: Proprietary Slimkey Keybed: A new 32-note keyboard with velocity and aftertouch, designed by Arturia for keyboardists Polyphonic Sequencer / Arpeggiator: Each sequence can have 64 steps; each step can have up to 8 notes. Step-sequencer with 8 memories or Arpeggiator mode with 8 pattern styles. Set swing and gate length from the keys Chord Play Mode:
Set chords and then play them back with a single note. Can also be used in Arpeggiator mode for chord arpeggiations Performance Controls: Capacitive-touch pitchbend and modulation strips Digital & Standalone: The USB port allows for standard, class-compliant, bus-powered operation.
These features alone would make KeyStep the best portable keyboard controller on the market. But we 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. To say KeyStep is an amazing little controller does not say enough.
Connect an optional USB power adaptor to use KeyStep in a standalone situation The three CV outputs send pitch and gate signals, along with a velocity, aftertouch, or mod. ribbon signal, to control an analog instrument or module CV supports 1 volt per octave, volt/Hz modes, Gate output 5V or 12V for modern or vintage gear support Sync:
