Amazing! The capabilities of the Beatstep Pro far outweigh the price! It's going to take a while to be able to discover all the possibilities!
Love this piece of kit, essentially it's a performance surface with three 64 step sequences, working great with my Korg Volca's and Mother 32 etc.
I upgraded my set up from the beatstep to the pro for increased versatility and connectivity in my music creation.As a control surface I find it intuitive and inspiring.
