BeatStep Pro features two melodic step sequencers. Record note pitch, length and velocity in real-time with the pads or an external keyboard and hear your sequence play back, quantized at the step resolution. You can also enter them in step mode using the touch-sensitive knobs and step buttons.
Sequences can have up to 64 steps, there are 32 sequences per project and 16 projects.
Alongside the two monophonic melodic sequencers, BeatStep Pro also features a 16 track drum sequencer. Once again, these sequences can be recorded in real-time by banging the pads, or with a classic drum machine workflow, by entering steps.
The knobs can be used to define the note length and velocity, but also to shift them from the grid quantization, in order to get exactly the kind of groove you want.
BeatStep Pro comes with touch-sensitive encoders. Simply brush any knob to know the value of the associated parameter. With an additional set of 16 pads and many transport controls you can configure the way you want, take control of your VST instruments like never before.
