Arturia's KeyStep Pro Controller and Sequencer opens up a world of possibilities for musicians eager to articulate their musical ideas. Remove the barriers between you and the music you want to create with 37 velocity-sensitive slim keys, 4 independent sequencer tracks and a 16-part drum sequencer. Whether performing live or crafting compositions in the studio, the KeyStep Pro inspires creativity.

37 Expressive Keys for Intuitive Playing

The KeyStep Pro features 37 velocity-sensitive slim keys with aftertouch for a natural feel. The keys respond dynamically to your touch, allowing for nuanced expression as you play. Aftertouch adds another layer of control, enabling you to manipulate the sound after pressing a key. With 3 octaves of responsive keys, the KeyStep Pro provides ample range for complex compositions and live performances.

Powerful Sequencing for Endless Possibilities

Four independent polyphonic sequencer tracks and a 16-part drum sequencer provide a foundation for rhythms and melodies. Step record your sequences in real time or enter notes individually per step. The multi-mode arpeggiator generates inspiring rhythmic patterns with the press of a key. Randomness and easy chord modes facilitate spontaneity. Global transpose allows you to change the key of your sequences on the fly. Save your sequences to recall instantly during live shows or in the studio.

Unparalleled Connectivity for a Unified Setup

The KeyStep Pro offers connectivity options for modular synths, vintage gear and software instruments. Four CV/Gate outputs and eight drum Gate outputs integrate analog equipment. 1 MIDI in and 2 MIDI out ports and USB connectivity link the KeyStep Pro to software synths, virtual instruments and DAWs. A metronome output provides a steady beat for you and your bandmates. A sustain input allows for expressive playing with compatible gear. Unite your musical setup with the KeyStep Pro.

Gig-Ready and Studio-Friendly

Whether performing on stage or crafting compositions in the studio, the KeyStep Pro delivers. Crisp OLED displays and illuminated controls provide visibility in low light. Save your favorite sequences, arpeggios and chords to recall instantly during live shows or recording sessions. A compact, lightweight design allows for easy transport and a small footprint in your workspace. Power via USB or an optional power supply.
