Terrific solution for mixing analog and digital synths

      Comments about Arturia Keystep Controller & Sequencer:

      The Keystep solves several problems at once. It's the only single device I know of that does all these things, and it does them with quality and style for a great price. It syncs my iPad synths to my MicroBrute, and arpeggiates the MicroBrute. The key feel is remarkably good (especially for the price) and the keys are cleverly sized for maximum comfort in minimal space. Lots of thoughtful touches, like putting the clock source (internal, midi, external analog sync) on DIP switches rather than forcing us to use software.

      Great device. So glad I got it!

        Hooked up all my groove boxes via MIDI and CV, and sync it with Drum machines thru Performance Mixer. and Play along with the KEY STEP... switching Arp. on 'n' off. experimenting with transposing External Sequences and mixing and tweaking, my own KEY STEP Sequences; create glitchy rhythms or even get Melodically Ambient, being that it is Polyphonic. Creating Chord Structures... Tempo Shifting with 'Pots'...
        ...Playing more than One, Synth at a Time. Giving me Complete Control.! ...HA haha.! ....and it's FUN.!

          Does exactly what I wanted

          Comments about Arturia Keystep Controller & Sequencer:

          I wanted a small keyboard that would work on Garage Band without any problems and that would work on my small desk but that also had good build quality. This fits the bill perfectly. I also like that the keys are not as small as some other mini keyboards and that I have a but more than 2 octaves to work with. The sequencer and arpeggiator are an added bonus. The controls are not always the most intuitive, but once you read up on them and get it figured out, it's no big deal. I wish they had an lcd screen that showed the tempo for the arpeggiator so that I could sink it with the tempo at which I'm recording things. But that's not a big deal. Again, I mainly bought this as a plug and play keyboard in a tight space, and it's perfect for that.

          Comments about Arturia Keystep Controller & Sequencer:

          Got this to use with my Roland Botiques but it makes them miss trigger things and stay holding notes forever. The sequencer is not as easy to master without any visual clues of the step you are on. Also it's not easy to clear the patterns or the arp. If you hit the play button it changes the patch sound on my Korg monologue to an overdriven tone that I did not program. Overall is a great concept and price but the amount of features that don't work correctly make it a dud for me.

            Comments about Arturia Keystep Controller & Sequencer:

            I found that my music was sounding a bit too static, and realized I was programming too much. This thing took my samplers (octatrack, digitakt, microgranny, organelle) and synths (0coast, microbrute) to a whole new level of expressiveness that I was missing. It's been so much fun to use and it's immediate.
