Arturia Keystep 32-Key

32-key slim keyboard with polyphonic step Sequencing, chord and arpeggiator modes, capacitive pitch and mod strips, and CV/Gate, MIDI, DIN Sync, and Sync I/O
MFR# 430201

Product Description

Arturia KeyStep is a new breed of portable musical tool combining the functionalities of a keyboard controller with a polyphonic step sequencer to control both analog and digital devices.

Arturia started by designing their own “slim key” keyboard action, balancing the best features of compact mini-keys with the musicality of full-sized keys into this new keybed. The size, velocity and aftertouch of this new design provide the freedom of portability without sacrificing playability.

they also designed a new polyphonic step-sequencer with 8 programmable memories that you can recall at the turn of knob. You can choose gate times and swing settings instantly to change the feel of your sequenced performance on the fly. You also have the ability to record, overdub, and transpose your sequences in real time and still play the keyboard live.

Add a flexible and fun arpeggiator mode and chord play mode and you are set for hours of musical adventures.

These features alone would make KeyStep the best portable keyboard controller on the market. But Arturia takes it further by giving you a wealth of connectivity options: USB MIDI (of course), standard MIDI in and out (check), clock sync and DIN sync jacks (yes!), and CV/GATE outputs, plus a separate, assignable modulation CV output that can be used with the mod wheel, velocity or aftertouch. To say KeyStep is an amazing little controller does not say enough.

Whatever your setup, KeyStep will merge into it to overdrive your workflow and effectiveness. With KeyStep and its range of connections you can control any digital or analog synthesizer from the past, today and even tomorrow. Sequence them all!

They Keystep is a super handy lil controller that is as easy to use as it is cute!

By Daniel A on January 15, 2020

Great build. Keys feel good, and arp/sequencer is a great feature. It’s simple with the beauty of no mapping software to keep up-to-date, or become obsolete.

thank you arturia

By Dave V on October 30, 2019

Very functional midi/CV keyboard. Good size, simple layout. Arp/sequencer are useful. Only complaint is the quality of the keys and how they're set could be nicer. Would recommend overall.

By Luc V on November 17, 2018

Does arp and sequencing exactly like I wanted it to and at this size I can throw it in the pocket of my synth's gig bag. Setting the sync settings is easy via the dipswitches and the pitch/mod strips are more responsive than I would expect. Watch out when doing a shift-key modifier move, however, so that you dont accidentally hit the keyboard and change the swing setting or whatever.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.

From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
