BeatStep is designed to give you the control you need whether it is in conjunction with your favorite DAW or loop triggering software, VST Instrument or Effect, Drum software, DJ application, MIDI synth or even CV/GATE equipped analog gear. The possibilities are nearly endless. Its small size may be a bit misleading as it's packed with features and can fulfill multiple requirements for a wide variety of musicians. Whether you need a compact pad controller, rotary encoders or an intuitive step sequencer, the BeatStep has got you covered. The controller's 16 pads are both pressure and velocity sensitive which allows you to capture the nuances of your performance. The added step sequencer opens up a world of possibilities for people who are using either MIDI modules, CV/GATE synths, and also to people using plug-ins on their computer via USB. While the step sequencer is running you can switch to Controller mode and use the pads and knobs to enable and disable effects or tweak filters, attack and decay times on plug-ins and more. Whether you use Ableton Live, Traktor, Serato or any other DJ/clip playback software, the Beatstep pads are perfect for launching samples or enabling effects. The 16 encoders give you lots of possibilities of mapping them to eqs, filters, delays and other performance effects.
