Even if Arturia’s BeatStep did nothing other than act as a dumb controller, it might get your attention. You can even set custom MIDI messages to the Play and Stop buttons, for various kinds of transport control or using them simply as MIDI Control Change triggers.
The caveat is, with the current firmware, a pattern immediately retriggers the moment you touch any of these controls, when you touch them.
Getting a sequencer, standalone operation, MIDI, and CV in the deal means it is going to be a must-buy for a lot of people. For now, I’m willing to make those tradeoffs on the BeatStep because it is so inexpensive and light. The Arturia Beatstep is a great device, but with its current firmware the encoders are much too slow.
You see two dials – the small one shows the real value, the second, bigger one shows the multiplied value which can be mapped to any function within Ableton Live.
Source Distribution has a great interview with Glen about the hardware’s creation, as well as a nice Jupiter demo with a plug-in.
But the sequencer feature seems really awful: terrible clock sync with no MIDI in or analog sync, no feedback for the sequencer plus the issue you’ve mentioned about the sequencer going out of sync when changing parameter!!! First, the name of the product is beatSTEP which means the sequencer is not meant to be an extra feature it IS a main feature (one of the two mode you can select).
I read her other books many years ago and thought they were great, but I recently picked up this one and it was very disappointing.
Are you looking for a helpful tool to help steer your life to where it is that you would like it go, vs. If yes, you are likely to find Living Forward: A Proven Plan to Stop Drifting and Get the Life You Want , [affiliate link] the book Michael Hyatt co-authored with Daniel Harkavy, the answer you have been looking for! It provides you with important reasons why you (or your clients) would want to take the time to create a life plan, the 3 critical questions you would need to answer to create your life plan, as well as an action plan to carry it out. Creating a life plan feels completely feasible and inspiring due to the many examples the authors provide throughout the book to both clarify and illustrate its various components.
As a social worker or other mental health professional, having a tool like this that enhances overall wellbeing can be powerful. Now, without further ado, below are the key ingredients Michael and Daniel recommend for creating your life plan. As per the Living Forward authors, a life plan is akin to a GPS app that you need to stay on track to the path of the life you want. To increase your likelihood that you will get to where you want to go + live a more fulfilled and balanced life! Filter opportunities – You are able to manage your opportunities rather than be managed by them.
Avoid regrets – You can dramatically increase the chances of doing what you want to do. Use the online Life Assessment Profile tool to see whether each account is getting what it needs.
Describe envisioned future – employ all five senses to describe how the account looks when your account is functioning at its best as if it is already a reality. Clients often come to social workers and other helping professionals looking to improve one area or another of their lives, not being aware of how one area may be impacting other areas. By encouraging clients to create their own life plans, you may help them gain quicker clarity over what their needs and issues are, determine their desired destination in all the areas of their lives and start making improvements within their relationships and other realms. Now, that I’ve finished the book and this post, I can’t wait to set aside a day to put together my plan! What are your thoughts about putting together a life plan, or using the book in your work with your clients? Disclosure of Material Connection: I received one copy of the book mentioned above for free in the hope that I would mention it on my blog. It is true that you may indeed have some unspecified or TBD goals but that is ok, because we are living and changing daily.
How interesting – it sounds like you have actually done the deep dive into the life plan type of approach.
I’m not sure I understand what you mean by you having a hard time setting a goal without the embedded context.
That’s great that you have a method that clarifies priorities and works well for you.
Thank you for this great read which is filled with life enhancing guidance for identifying a life path that’s well aligned with ones personal values! I’m so glad, LaTonya, that you found this post helpful and that you have become inspired to work on your life plan!


Good Morning, having worked in EAP and College Counseling this Life Plan tool would be empowering.
I average around 6 cups per day, and this can include any type from instant, ground coffee, freshly ground coffee beans and store bought to my own coffee machine. For those of you not familiar BCLC, they produce pods similar to the Nespresso pods, but up to 30% cheaper. Big Cup Little Cup are made from plastic, recyclable, see through material (above image, left). Big Cup Little Cup’s plastic capsules have holes in to allow for water to flow nicely through to prevent this causing issues with the freshness of the coffee each capsule is wrapped inside foil. Mike's background is in Business and Marketing Management, with experience both client and agency side in demanding industries such as tourism, entertainment, finance, B2B and FMCG.

In EcoMind, Frances Moore Lappe—a giant of the environmental movement—confronts accepted wisdom of environmentalism. As a controller, it has both 16 pads and 16 endless encoders (with notches, so you can feel where you are), plus transport triggers and a larger encoder.
It has sophisticated software customization via a companion program, and a built-in step sequencer.
The BeatStep is narrower than a 15″ MacBook Pro, as you can see in the photo, and roughly laptop thickness. The bad news: you may wind up doing some prep work in advance, because live modes are at the moment somewhat limited on the hardware itself. So, while the pattern still clocks to the tempo of an external source, you’re now very much not in sync on a downbeat. Swing is another major oversight – which also makes the BeatStep feel more like a software product rather than hardware product. But the other issue is, simply, Arturia has created a very compact controller and there just isn’t room for more functionality. And in the meantime, I’m keeping my eyes out for a standalone device that operates together with a computer. Any output from your computer – meaning, like the also-very-useful QuNexus, the BeatStep is a quick-and-dirty MIDI-to-CV converter for your computer. I threw one in my suitcase and connected it to my MeeBlip anode, clocking from Ableton Live (which also clocked a KORG volca beats drum machine and Native Instruments Maschine). Apart from connecting to a computer (but what is the point then?), you cannot visualize what your sequence looks like, right? The pad are pressure and velocity sensitive, yes, but the sequencer DOES NOT provide any velocity editing (neither in hardware nor software). I should have been more specific: there is a huge lack of feedback on the sequencer part that makes it really hard to use. There is a more or less integrated sequencer (in the form of a M4L patch) in the Launchpad and the street prices are the same.
But for me, a big part of the reason I want an outboard sequencer is for working without one. Maybe I'm just getting older and my perspective is changing, but I'm so glad I borrowed it from the library and didn't buy it.
In our efforts to focus on the care for our clients, some of us may forget to tend our own gardens.
Use present tense to further solidify this feeling, belief and confidence in yourself and your ability to achieve your goal.
Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers. Similarly, our life plan is a living document to be tweaked and evolve as our needs change. Occasionally, I find myself conflicted and therefore I think I’d benefit from the clarity that the life plan yields.
I am currently in a life transition both personally and professionally so I plan to use this for myself. Michael and Daniel plan to create trainings for corporations to empower their employees with this tool. If you need to talk or are concerned about someone else, please call 1-800-273-TALK (8255). I’ve recently had the opportunity to try out some new Nespresso capsules for my home machine courtesy of the guys at Big Cup Little Cup (BCLC). The main difference between the pods (besides the price) is that the BCLC capsules are made from recyclable material, but how do the pods measure up against the Nespresso capsules?


Mike joined the search marketing team at Branded3 in January 2011, and now heads up Branded3's London office as an Account Director. Drawing on the latest research from anthropology to neuroscience and her own field experience, she argues that the biggest challenge to human survival isn’t our fossil fuel dependency, melting glaciers, or other calamities. It operates standalone, with MIDI gadgets or analog hardware (with gate and pitch Control Voltage outputs).
Arturia acknowledged this issue to CDM, and suggests it should be addressed in a firmware update. Arturia even pitches this as a companion to the iPad, but the iPad has easily half a dozen step sequencers that best this one.
An LED would make programming easier; more controls would let you perform other functions or chain together more than 16 steps. The powerful editor and notation view mean that you can load up 16 sequences and carry them with you, and the combination of encoders with scale modes is great. While it has an ugly, shiny-silver faceplate, the M-Audio Trigger Finger Pro has all the layers, extra steps, visual feedback, and spacious pad and control layout that the BeatStep lacks – and it will operate standalone, too.
So, all the melodic synth patterns you hear here (and some less-melodic patterns) are the BeatStep driving the MeeBlip, from a set I did recently in an underground club in Belgrade. The only feedback you have is for the active steps (the pad leds) and for the current step. Or are you looking for something to use to encourage your clients take on a more proactive vs.
However, Highwire comes close and I’ll be buying from Big Cup Little Cup again at some stage. Rather, it’s our faulty way of thinking about these environmental crises that robs us of power.
It could therefore be a compact part of a mobile music-making rig, and it’s at this point that our review gets much more involved. All in all, this is already no contest: this feels better than any comparable controller at this price. Everything else, though, is up for grabs, in a seriously sophisticated piece of controller software the BeatStep shares with the rest of the Arturia family.
Now, because you can also set modes like major, minor, Blues, and User, you can more easily dial in the notes you want – nice. The BeatStep has made me oddly more hungry for this kind of hybrid device, so I look forward to InMusic shipping that.
The low price is an argument only in the second category, where the sequencer feature is the main feature. Lappe dismantles seven common “thought traps”—from limits to growth to the failings of democracy— that belie what we now know about nature, including our own, and offers contrasting “thought leaps” that reveal our hidden power. The BeatStep has an impressive lineage – veteran designers Glen Darcey, Axel Hartmann, and Morgan Perrier collaborated on its creation. That allows you to use these two modes as independent layers of functionality, and there’s helpful feedback to let you know where you are.
That means you can get really fussy programming your patterns before a gig, and have them ready to go.
Add to that the inability to set swing from the main panel, and this feels like it just isn’t a fully-formed sequencer.
Like her Diet for a Small Planet classic, EcoMind is challenging, controversial and empowering. In controller mode, everything lights blue; in SEQ mode, pads are red when you tap them and the active step is blue. It’s a nice extra on a fantastic controller, but not the standalone sequencer some of us hoped for.
I’ve never been able to articulate goals that were that definitive, and my life has never felt very linear. A sequencer providing editting just one step at a time but where you can VISUALIZE all the sequence would have been more usefull!
The more meaningful question for me has been: what do I want more of and less of in my life?
The BeatStep right now does neither of those, clocking patterns free and potentially causing rhythmic train wrecks.
