Arturia Keystep - Playing with the Step Sequencer

Published on Sep 2, 2016 ProckGnosis

"Just a bit of playing around with the step sequencer on the Arturia Keystep MIDI Controller, using it to sequence a Yamaha CS5 analog mono synth.

Really had 3 goals with this:
1. Playing with the Keystep sequencer
2. Testing the Waldorf Pulse 2 for translating MIDI to CV
3. Sequencing an old mono, analog synth that had no MIDI

The Keystep is a great piece of hardware at a decent price (around $115-120), with velocity and aftertouch sensitive keys, an arpeggiator, and a step sequencer. Can store up to eight, 64-step sequences. MIDI in/out and CV and gate outs for controlling analog equipment.

The Keystep has CV and gate out, but the Yamaha CS5 doesn't use the normal, Moogish-volt-per-octave standard, so I had to use the Waldorf Pulse 2 to translate the midi from the Keystep to the Hertz-per-volt CV standard older Yamaha synths frequently used."
