Portable keyboard 32 keys with controller/sequencer


Arturia redefines the experience of a portable keyboard with KeyStep. For those who have MIDI modules to connect but do not need a large keyboard; for those who have modular systems or other analog hardware and want to control them via CV / GATE; for those who need a step sequencer with polyphony functionality to be synchronized with modern or vintage devices: the KeyStep controller does all this and much more. Arturia has designed a new type of keyboard, joining the best features of a compact keyboard with mini-keys while maintaining the sound of a full-size keyboard. Dimensions, velocity and aftertouch of this new design guarantee the total freedom of a portable system but not at the expense of functionality. In addition, Arturia has also integrated a brand new polyphonic step-sequencer with 8 programmable memories that can be recalled with the simple rotation of a knob. Gate and swing times can be set up quickly and easily to change performance sequentially, and feature overlay, overdub, and sequencing features are also implemented, all in real time by continuing to play the live keyboard .
