"I never take the time to write about my experience with any company. I mean, why should you not expect that a company would provide a good product and service. But in the case of Kraft Music, I feel compelled to let others know how exceptional this company is. This is a company who still does business the old fashioned way. I cannot recommend them enough and I do to anyone looking for quality instruments at a great price." - Brian, MA

”I buy a lot of products both personally and at work, and deal with tons of vendors, I find Kraft Music to be very professional and efficient, their website is easy to navigate, their shipping is quick, and their prices are the lowest around.” - Anoosh, GA
 

Arturia’s BeatStep offers a new degree of functionality and performance for a portable pad controller. BeatStep is highly versatile, capable of triggering clips in such applications as Ableton Live, playing drums in conjunction with such applications as BFD or EZDrummer. But 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 vast connectivity allows you to connect the BeatStep to a computer or iPAD using USB, a drum module using MIDI or an analog synthesizer equipped with CV/GATE. BeatStep is truly flexible and opens up new avenues of hands-on creative control for the contemporary musician.
 

Step Sequencer
In SEQ mode, your pads become enables for each step in your sequence. The 16 encoders will adjust pitch for the associated step. 16 memories allow for instant recall of your favorite patterns while the pad scale modes, seq playback modes and time division functions allow for real- time performance changes. Add to all this, MIDI, USB and CV/GATE connectivity and you have a sequencer that can be used with all types of gear, including analog synths , software instruments, and MIDI hardware.
 

Percussion Controller
With 16 velocity and pressure sensitive pads, the BeatStep is the perfect compact percussion instrument. The ultra sensitive pads allow for great dynamic performances. The 16 encoders can be assigned to adjust parameters that allow further real-time control over your drum sounds.
 

General Purpose Control Surface
The BeatStep pads can be configured to be MIDI CC buttons or assigned to send Program and Bank Change messages as well as note-on and note-off messages. With the 16 encoders, 16 pads/buttons and 16 preset memories, you can come up with multiple ways to use the BeatStep in any live or studio environnement. You can trigger clips in Ableton Live or use the encoders to adjust effects settings in your favorite DJ app. The transport buttons can be MMC controls or MIDI CC to start and stop your DAW. It can be the MIDI Clock master or slave to external clock. Using an iPad with the Camera Connection kit, you can turn the BeatStep into one of the most flexible iPad app controllers as well.
