Arturia UK distributor Source Distribution are lucky enough to have their hands on one of the first few Beatsep Pro units. They popped into the studio to give us a look at the thing which has got people so excited as a hands on control centre for analog and MIDI gear.

To recap, the Arturia Beatsep Pro takes the original Beatstep concept and adds a whole load of new features in a compact, affordable unit. With two CV/gate and MIDI sequencers, plus a 16 part drum sequencer which outputs 8 channels of trigger for driving modular kit. This is quite an impressive achievement considering its powered by a USB input - which if you didn't know, only supplies 5V - not sure how the heck they do that!

With 16 velocity and pressure sensitive pads, and a real-time looper/slicer not only can you get busy with your modular kit, but also highly complex MIDI control setups - with physical MIDI io and over USB.

We can't wait to get our hands on one for review, but in the mean time, enjoy this conversation we had with Source Distribution's synth expert, Alex.

Available imminently priced at £185/$249 street price.
