Manufacturer's ID: KEYSTEP

You need a portable USB MIDI controller but also want a keyboard that provides a musical playing experience. You have some MIDI modules you want to connect but don’t want the footprint of a large keyboard. You have modular and analog gear you want to control via CV/GATEs. You want a step sequencer with polyphonic capa- bility that can sync to your favorite modern and vintage gear. If only a single piece of gear could do all of this...

Specification

It’s the touch...
The KeyStep controller does all this and more. We started by designing our own “slim key” keyboard action, balancing the best features of compact mini-keys with the musicality of full-sized keys into this new keybed. The size, velocity and aftertouch of this new design provide the freedom of portability without sacrificing playability. We also designed a new polyphonic step-sequencer with 8 programmable memories that you can recall at the turn of knob. You can choose gate times and swing settings instantly to change the feel of your sequenced performance on the fly. We also included the ability to record, overdub, and transpose your sequences in real time and still play the keyboard live. Add a flexible and fun arpeggiator mode and chord play mode and you are set for hours of musical adventures.

...and the possibilities
These features alone would make KeyStep the best portable keyboard controller on the market. But we take it further by giving you a wealth of connectivity options: USB MIDI (of course), standard MIDI in and out (check), clock sync and DIN sync jacks (yes!), and CV/GATE outputs, plus a separate, assignable modulation CV output that can be used with the mod wheel, velocity or aftertouch. To say KeyStep is an amazing little controller does not say enough. Keystep is the perfect performance controller in a compact package.

Like most of Arturia's products, it's *very* comprehensive but a bit too so at times as it takes me a long time to get my head around all the features, but... ...it's well worth the trip :)
