    Key Features:

    32 Slim-Key Design:

    The KeyStep features a 32-note slim-key keyboard that strikes a perfect balance between playability and portability. The keys are velocity-sensitive and provide aftertouch, offering expressive control over your music. The slim keys make it compact enough to fit in a backpack while still providing a comfortable playing experience.

    Polyphonic Step Sequencer:

    One of the standout features of the KeyStep is its polyphonic step sequencer, which allows you to create intricate sequences with up to 8 voices of polyphony. The sequencer supports up to 64 steps per sequence and 8 notes per step, making it easy to build complex melodies and harmonies. You can store and recall up to 8 sequences on the device.

    Chord Mode:

    The KeyStep includes a powerful chord mode that lets you play full chords with a single key press. This feature is perfect for quickly building chord progressions and adding harmonic complexity to your compositions. Simply define a chord shape, and play it across the keyboard with ease.

    Arpeggiator Functionality:

    With a built-in arpeggiator, the KeyStep allows you to transform held notes into rhythmic patterns. The arpeggiator offers multiple modes, such as up, down, inclusive, and random, providing a range of creative possibilities for generating dynamic and evolving melodies.

    Flexible Connectivity:

    The KeyStep is equipped with a wide range of connectivity options, making it compatible with both modern and vintage gear. It includes USB MIDI, standard 5-pin MIDI, CV/Gate outputs, and a sync input/output. This allows you to control everything from software instruments and MIDI hardware to modular synthesizers and vintage analog gear.

    Transport Controls:

    The KeyStep features transport controls for start, stop, and record functions, allowing you to control your DAW or external sequencer directly from the controller. These controls are MIDI-mappable, giving you seamless integration with your digital audio workstation.

    Sustain and Hold Pedal Inputs:

    With dedicated inputs for sustain and hold pedals, the KeyStep gives you additional control over your performance. These inputs support standard sustain pedals, allowing for more expressive play and sustain capabilities.

    User-Friendly Interface:

    Despite its lightweight and compact form factor, the KeyStep is built to last, with a rugged construction that can withstand the rigors of travel and frequent use. Its sleek design and sturdy build make it a reliable companion for both studio sessions and live gigs.

    Customizable Settings:

    The KeyStep offers customizable settings for MIDI channel selection, sync mode, and clock source, giving you the flexibility to tailor its functionality to your specific workflow. You can configure these settings via the included MIDI Control Center software or directly on the device.

    Standalone Operation:

    The KeyStep can operate as a standalone sequencer, enabling you to create and perform music without needing to connect it to a computer. This makes it a perfect choice for live performances and mobile setups where computer-free operation is desired.
