"I'm bewildered it's taken manufactures so long to catch on to the control voltage craze. Now that we have there are a proliferation of exciting new instruments and synths, for bang for buck you can get a Beatstep Pro and stop looking. This is the most feature rich, high end step and gate sequencer in a small format, affordable (and substantial) package I've ever seen. I want about 20 of these!" – BT via Arturiamore
"The BeatStep Pro helped me control all my old analog gear from one central location. It was really fun to control all the instruments in new ways giving life to some old stuff I had stopped using. It's really intuitive and you don't really need the instructions to get going. Nice work." via Arturiamore
"The first I noticed about the Beatstep Pro was the build quality, super solid and the action of the knobs and the touch pads are great, gave me confidence that I can take this in the road every weekend and it will survive the savage airport luggage guys throwing my stuff around. I use it to control and sequence my modular synthesisers. In use it was so quick to get a groove down and also a melody that complimented the groove because it so easy to flick through the different sequencer sections. The swing is really nice and jacking and the random function is great to add a some evolving hits into a drum sequence to make a change and less static beat. The connectivity is amazing too which makes it as useful in the studio as it is in a live setting ! In a live setting having the options to sync via midi, CV or even internally is a great safe guard if a piece of vital clocking equipment breaks and goes down while on the road. Overall a brilliant sequencer to jam with but also to go really deep with the sequencing in the studio!" - Blawan via Arturiamore
"It's still new to me but is excellent, especially for driving the modular. I don't have any sequencer modules so this serves the purpose brilliantly, and it is a perfect fit for my live show too, doubling as a general MIDI controller."
