The world’s favorite small-format, versatile step sequencer just got a makeover. Control analog gear, virtual instruments, and more with the black limited edition BeatStep. The perfect combination of space-saving, flexible control and an easy-to-master sequencer, BeatStep Black Edition gives both musicians and producers access to their DAW and exciting new ways of creating sequenced beats and melodies.

The perfect precision weapon when it comes to finger drumming and sample triggering, BeatStep lets you unite your hardware and software instruments with its built-in step-sequencer. A streamlined, yet versatile hybrid controller, BeatStep Black Edition features a rack of pads for programming and performance, transport buttons for playback control in your DAW, and rotary knobs to tweak your sequence. Thanks to its great connections, you can get your outboard synths and drum machines playing perfectly with your DAW, all while being sequenced or synchronized by the BeatStep. Small enough to work in any setup, but powerful enough to bring a new dimension to your sound.

Let BeatStep Black Edition unleash the potential of your setup. Analog Lab Lite Imagine conveniently having all the keyboard and synth sounds you need for a gig or session all in one place on your computer. No racks. No stacks. Analog Lab Lite gives you streamlined, tag-based access to hundreds of the hottest presets from our award-winning V Collection. You’ll be spoilt for choice with 17 faithfully modeled legendary analog synths, digital workstations, organs, string machines and pianos. Each preset automatically maps the most important sound parameters to Arturia controllers for intuitive tweaking and performance control, and you can easily custom map to any other controller via the MIDI Learn feature.
