Arturia releases Beatstep pad controller

arturia_beatstep

Today Arturia released their new Beatstep pad controller, an affordable MIDI pad controller that offers portability and functionality. The device only costs $129, which is really not bad at all for something like this.

The Beatstep has two different modes, the MIDI controller mode, and the Step Sequencer mode. It includes 16 velocity and pressure sensitive pads, 16 encoders, and even iPad compatibility. It has both a USB output and a MIDI output, so you can use it in whatever way works best for you. While Arturia is perhaps more known for their controllers like the Microbrute, this definitely does not seem like a bad product at all. Check out the video below for more info!
