BeatStep Black Edition
THE BLACK HEART BEATS
The world’s favorite small-format, versatile step sequencer just got a makeover. Control analog gear, virtual instruments, and more with the black limited edition BeatStep.

The perfect combination of space-saving, flexible control and an easy-to-master sequencer, BeatStep Black Edition gives both musicians and producers access to their DAW and exciting news ways of creating sequenced beats and melodies.

The perfect precision weapon when it comes to finger drumming and sample triggering, BeatStep lets you unite your hardware and software instruments with its built-in step-sequencer. A streamlined, yet versatile hybrid controller, BeatStep Black Edition features a rack of pads for programming and performance, transport buttons for playback control in your DAW, and rotary knobs to tweak your sequence. Thanks to its great connections, you can get your outboard synths and drum machines playing perfectly with your DAW, all while being sequenced or synchronized by the BeatStep.

Small enough to work in any setup, but powerful enough to bring a new dimension to your sound. Let BeatStep Black Edition unleash the potential of your setup.

Black Beauty
Deceptively versatile, the new limited edition black version of our iconic small controller is the perfect companion for producers on the move or musicians with limited space.

BeatStep Black Edition’s pads are both velocity and pressure sensitive, letting you punch in dynamic rhythms in your DAW. Once you’re happy with your performance, you can tweak the sounds and parameters of your software instruments with its control mode, letting you freely assign the knobs, buttons and pads within your DAW. In sequencer mode, you can create 16-step monophonic sequences using the pads to punch in notes and the knobs to edit the pitch. To streamline your workflow, BeatStep also lets you choose from a selection of scales and sequence modes.

The sleek new black version of the award-winning BeatStep also comes complete with a professional music software suite that’s guaranteed to inspire your creativity, and 2 CV/Gate cables so you can experiment with syncing and controlling your outboard synths, sound modules, and drum machines.
