Fun and Inspirational

Ka5par, 18.05.2017
When I bought this controller, my aim was to mainly use the knobs for controlling soft-synths, occasionally using the main features of the step-sequencer.

Playing with it has won me over with the sequencing as the main use. This might be due to the stepped action of the adjustment knobs or just laziness on my part assigning the CC-s to the controls or because it's just so much fun to use.

Build-quality and the design of the instrument is good, all the controls are well laid out. The device is easy to use apart from some secondary functions that take a bit time to figure out, or just check the manual.
The pads work OK for recording a sequence, but for finger drumming I prefer Korg padKontrol. For that I find the pads a bit small, the two row configuration is not as good as the 4x4 of the padkontrol, but this isn't the main purpose of the instrument.

Nice feature is that by touching a knob, the display shows the value of that knob. I also like the various scale and sequence direction options. Only niggle is that "Alternate" playback or forward-reverse repeats the last/first note when changing direction. Would be nice to have the option to not repeat the boundary notes.
Randomization features are also useful to bring some variety to sequences.

Great inspirational tool for live performance or for composing.

Happy with purchase - Using with Moog sub 37, DSI Prophet 08, Reaper and Geist

JulianJ, 29.07.2015
I've not had my Beatstep pro for long but I can definitely see the potential with it.

So far I have it hooked up to my Moog sub 37 via cv controlling pitch, velocity and gate (NB - needs to 1/4" to 1/8" patch leads for this). CV gate has an option for slides - this can achieve a nice acid glide effect if you're into that sort of thing! I've tested the MIDI out to the Prophet 08 (output from Beatstep Pro sequencer is mono only) and no issues.

I've had some success linking to Reaper DAW via usb though haven't got the tempo sync-ing yet (need to suss the config I guess). I also have the pads and encoders (in control mode) triggering samples and effects in Geist via my Reaper DAW.

The build quality of the item is good. The MIDI software editor (for configuring) seem pretty comprehensive (I managed to accidentally overwrite a sequence early on as I wasn't sure how to utilise it so it takes a bit of time to familiarise with how it operates - still not quite there yet!).

From a sequencing point of view it's very hands on and intuitive. I haven't looked at the manual yet (just a couple of youtube videos) and I have managed to create a couple of sequences without much effort.

I haven't experimented with the drum CV outs much as I don't have a hardware dum machine with CV inputs. I did link one of th drum CV outs to a moogerfooger delay pedal which has CV in and managed to use this to control the delay time.

All in all I can see this being a very useful tool for hands-on idea generation / live work and so far am happy with the purchase.

NB - I chose 4 stars for sound as it was a requirement to fill this in (it produces no sound) so I just went with the average of my other choices!
