As of August 16, 2020 the KSP is still functionally in an alpha state. The software is missing numerous key features you would expect in a controller, is very buggy and even prone to the odd lockup. It is not in its current form a direct upgrade to the Keystep or the Beatstep Pro. Changing MIDI channels requires menu diving and is global. The drum track can only send on one MIDI channel. The MCC software lacks missing any sequence view (it's extremely barebones). You can't transpose arpeggios. Syncing with other devices is flakey at best. Check out the Arturia forums before considering purchasing.
