The Story Behind Arturia BeatStep
BeatStep co-creator Glen Darcey chats to Source about the inspiration behind the design, his first experiences with synthesizers and also how he’ll be using BeatStep in his own analogue-heavy synth studio.
BeatStep is also a 16-step analog sequencer for creating all kinds of musical phrases to be sent to analog synthesizers, MIDI drum machines, MIDI keyboard devices, or computer programs. Its connectivity options let you interface BeatStep with a computer or iPAD using USB, a drum module using MIDI or an analog synthesizer equipped with CV/GATE.
It’s priced at US $129 / EURO 99, and is expected to be available in March.
