BeatStep Pro is unlike anything you have ever used on stage or in the studio. Wherever you are, whatever gear is available, taking control of the creative process has never been so easy.

Step into the spotlight

Two independent melodic sequencers and a drum sequencer put thousands of on-the-spot ideas at your disposal.

With BeatStep Pro you are master of the performance, taking full control of virtual devices, analog and digital instruments, drum machines and iPad apps all at once. 16 Projects are instantly accessible, each of which contains 16 sequences per melodic sequencer and 16 patterns for the drum sequencer. That’s over 4000 possible combinations per Project!

Each melodic sequence can be up to 64 steps long with individual articulation of pitch, velocity and gate time per note. These are the most powerful step sequencers ever made. The drum sequencer has 16 separate tracks per sequence (one per pad). Record in real time from the pads or use the step buttons for that classic drum machine workflow.

Perfect performance

BeatStep Pro brings together the most unique and sought-after performance effects available: a looper with a touch strip, a randomizer, swing settings and a slew of hands-on controls that will make your performances the stuff of legend.

Take control

Control mode lets you trigger clips in your favorite DAW, play sounds from an external device or make magic with your plug-in of choice. Take your music from idea to reality with BeatStep Pro.

Plays well with others (very, very well)

With BeatStep Pro you can connect to virtually any musical device within reach: computers, virtual instruments, modular synths, drum machines; anything with USB, MIDI in and out, CV/Gate outputs, Clock in and out, or DIN sync. From the oldest music technology to the newest and beyond, BeatStep Pro is bound to become the centerpiece of your setup and the heart of your creative efforts for many years to come.

“Arturia have released a Pro version of the Beatstep and we’re pretty sure we’re about to fall in love all over again.”
Future Music

Create Digital Music
“Whether you want to sequence a modular synthesizer, a piece of retro hardware, or even Ableton Live—or all of the above, simultaneously—BeatStep Pro is an impressively versatile device for doing so.”

“BeatStep Pro elevates sequencing from the simple generation of patterns into a virtuosic process all of its own.” – Fact Magazine

“It seems that 2015 might just be remembered as the year of the step sequencer. If so, the Beatstep Pro is already a candidate for poster boy. I can’t think of a serious challenger at the price that offers such wide connectivity or so welcoming an interface. Highly recommended.” -Sound on Sound

“There’s so much to the BeatStep Pro that it can be overwhelming if you insist on learning every feature. I suspect users will pick and choose what they use depending on their individual requirements. For the money litle else comes close – I will be buying one.” -Future Music

“Analog dreams come true: Arturia’s new powerhouse for sequencing and live performances is convincing right down the line.” -Keys

“I rarely make recommendations, but the BeatStep Pro is a real “must-have” for all musicians.”

-Beat magazine

“BeatStep Pro is recommended as a control center for every studio, at an unbeatable price!” -Beat magazine
“Arturia Beatsep Pro takes the original Beatstep concept and adds a whole load of new features in a compact, affordable unit. With two CV/gate and MIDI sequencers, plus a 16 part drum sequencer which outputs 8 channels of trigger for driving modular kit. This is quite an impressive achievement considering its powered by a USB input – which if you didn’t know, only supplies 5V – not sure how the heck they do that!”

“The BeatStep Pro will allow you to perform and produce easily, letting the creativity flow.” –

Sonic Sense

“As a standalone sequencer, BeatStep Pro sets a new standard for what one should expect, with a level of polish that will really set the bar for all of Arturia’s competitors. Thought and care has gone into this design to such a degree, that it really almost brings a tear to my eye, as you can tell this is a product of sheer passion.”-
