The industry standard mini-key sequencer is now available in a limited edition black finish. Play polyphonic arpeggios, sync with any source, and control your hardware synths in style.

Small enough to fit into everyones set-up, but powerful enough to revolutionize your workflow, KeyStep is ideal for performance as well as studio experimentation. Connect to practically any hardware or software thanks to its great MIDI, CV/Gate, and sync connectivity. KeyStep lets you create polyphonic sequences on a virtual instrument in your DAW, sync with a modular drum machine using its CV connectivity, and play a melody at the same time with through an outboard analog synth.

Packed with features to inspire your creativity, KeyStep lets you create polyphonic, evolving sequences up to 8 notes deep and 64 steps long. Combined with its ability to connect to practically any electronic instrument, youll be able to do things you never thought possible. Create thick, lush arpeggios, record a sequence in real-time, rewrite it, edit the swing, gate length, and play a melody simultaneously on its high quality 32-note keyboard.

KeyStep Black Edition also comes complete with 3 CV/Gate cables, letting you sync up and experiment with whatever synths, sound modules, or drum machines you already own as soon as you take it out of the box. Thanks to its great connectivity, KeyStep also makes a superb MIDI-to-CV interface.
