23 June 2020

Arturia continue to analyse feedback on their latest controller, KeyStep Pro, and are now delivering the 1.2.6 update, including workflow improvements and bug fixes.

What’s New?

  • Reworked MIDI In implementation – Notes sent to the track’s input MIDI channels are now processed as if these were played on the KeyStep Pro keyboard and transmitted to the MIDI and CV Outputs.
  • More recording flexibility with the count in – When recording in real time, notes played prior to the recording are maintained after the start and are now recorded as well.
  • Record several patterns on the fly – Patterns can now be changed while record is ON. This lets you build several patterns at one time leaving more room for your creative flow when jamming.
  • Drum track time division per pattern – The drum track time division is now stored in each drum pattern and recalled when changing from one pattern to another.
  • Sync Auto mode improvement – KeyStep Pro is now able to jump back to its internal clock after having been synced to an external source.
  • Sync handling improvements – Synchronization accuracy has been improved and now supports all clock rate formats.
  • New screen feedback messages – For some actions, new screen messages have been added to make the workflow more intuitive
  • Bug fixes – The update also comes with various bug fixes and workflow improvements. For more details, check out the release notes.
