BeatStep Pro / Re: MIDI puzzle
« Last post by dog01 on August 21, 2016, 09:18:54 am »
The beat step pro can only sequencer a max of 3 midi channel... in controller mode it can can be mapped to whatever channels you want you could have each knob on different midi channel for instance

i am a little confused ??? as to what your trying to achieve the beatstep pro can sequencer 3 separate devices all on different midi  see below

so one set up for example seq 1 midi channel  4 Korg MS2000R channel 4.  seq 2 channel 6 Future Retro Zillion channel 6 seq3 drums midi channel 10 device x by the way i have seq channel set to user so i can change them on the device and not have to use MCC each time i want to change one
my beatstep pro setup is this all three sequencer channel set to user and then seq ch1 seq ch2 seq3 ch10 (in contorl mode i have the first knob maped to bank changes on dw6000)
_beatstep pro midi out _ into midi thur box splits it 4 ways
_dw6000 midi in ch1
_midi korg volca keys ch2
_mpx8 midi in ch10

you could always add a thru box Future Retro Zillion
-midi in from BSP
-midi thru to midi thru box to Korg MS2000R and BSP

the beatstep pro does not have a midi it will not pass on midi from the beatstep pro midi input to its midi out only midi data generated by the beatstep pro will be sent by its out... i know the keystep has midi thru option and is reasonably cheap sorry unless arturia release a firmware update to allow bsp midi out to acted as a thru.  regards Dog01
ARP2600 V3 - Technical Issues / Re: Sequencer synch with Ableton
« Last post by LBH on August 21, 2016, 03:00:49 am »
In the sequencer section you find 3 red sliders. Right of the red sliders you find a switch. The Label is missing on this too Arturia. But on mouse over it show "Sequencer midi sync" parameter. This is the Midi sync switch. When the sync switch is on the first red slider labeled "Clock freq" change values to Midi sync.
Using those controls should sync ARP 2600 V3 to your DAWs tempo. It do so in my DAW Studio One.
BeatStep Pro / MIDI puzzle

EDITED- I changed my config since the Boomerang does pass midi thru. I thought I had put it in the right mode but I had not (this is really easy to mistake since the modes are differentisted by a "bright" orange vs a "dim" orange light)

Hey everyone. I'm trying to set everything up in my small home studio so everything is always connected and ready to go-- a common goal for musicians of all stripes that can be pretty infuriating when there is that *one* piece of the puzzle that refuses to fit into place and do what it is frickin told. 

In my case at the meoment that one piece seems to be the BSP  >:(

I thought since the BSP has USB MIDI and din MIDI that I could use the MIDI ports to communicate through the BSP to the ZIllion and the Korg on separate MIDI channels with Reaper. But the BSP only seems to communicate on the channels designated to its three sequencers. I can play the Zillion through the Korg if the BSP Zillion and Korg are all on the same channel, and the MIDI also goes back into Reaper, but that's not what I want.

If there are any workarounds or tricks to getting the BSP to do what arguably it should be able to do, which is pass MIDI through, I would love to hear. Otherwise I will have to get some kind of MIDI interface for this stuff. I thought I was clever enough to avoid needing one, but apparently the BeatStep Pro is somewhat less than clever.

ARP2600 V3 - Technical Issues / Sequencer synch with Ableton
« Last post by corum_beasley on August 20, 2016, 09:11:24 pm »
If i right click on the start button of the  Modular V there is an option to External Sequencer Start. I have right clicked on all the relevant buttons on the sequencer section of the Arp 2600v but cannot find the equivalent option. How do i synch the sequencer with Ableton?

I have been having a great time with this synth and especially with the sequencer, which is everything i wanted from the Moog 960 on the Modular V, i wish Arturia would faithfully recreate the 960 and related modules, 961, 962, 963, 994 please. I can edit on the fly very easily with the 1601 and thank very much for that Arturia!!
Keystep Technical questions / Keystep as a usb to midi host?
« Last post by Kollo on August 20, 2016, 08:57:53 pm »

This is maybe a longshot  ??? but is there a chance that the Keystep can act as a USB to midi host for class compliant usb devices? I donīt have the proper usb connectors to test this but USB midi coming from a computer is sent to the old school midi outs of the Keystep. It would be a cool feature to be able to use modern USB controllers with vintage gear via the Keystep.

Cheers from Sweden!

BeatStep Pro / Re: USB Thru midi out
« Last post by Rorytheherb on August 20, 2016, 05:30:21 pm »

I'm trying to do the same thing. Even with routing in Reaper I am not getting it to work. I have MIDI-Ox but not sure how that would help.

dog01, could you tell us how exactly you got MIDI thru the BSP? that is, even with software.

BeatStep Pro / Re: Beatstep Pro and Boomerang III Looper
« Last post by Rorytheherb on August 20, 2016, 05:24:25 pm »
i have em both and am currently trying to set up everything in my studio around Reaper.
I have a question for you -- does the Boomerang not pass MIDI thru??? It doesn't seem to for me. I have the latest version 1.31 firmware installed on it.
Keystep Technical questions / All Lights Off?
« Last post by Synthlover on August 20, 2016, 04:15:21 pm »
Hello Arturia,
Hope you're well.
The Keystep is a great product for a great price.
But, is there anyway to stop the button(s) from being lit up (when I'm not using the device) without having to unplug the USB cable each time?

BeatStep Pro / BSP - Sync Issues (Even With Latest Firmware)
« Last post by Synthlover on August 20, 2016, 04:04:11 pm »
Hello Arturia,
I love my Beatstep Pro but it also drives me mad. Why? It doesn't stay in Sync with Ableton 9.6 via USB.
There seems to be some sort of lag as the BSP only very rarely starts on the bar and plays in Sync. Also, when I program a pattern on the BSP and then try and record the midi into Ableton it never records at the start of the bar (almost always two 16th late) meaning that I always need to drag the notes into place. I'm using the latest firmware (

Hope you can help!
