Review: Arturia BeatStep

Sonic State has reviewed the Arturia BeatStep controller. Although this review focuses primarily on its CV output to control modular gear, it is also class-compliant and iOS friendly! The BeatStep is now available in stores, so the challenge here is to watch this video and manage not to blow $100 on one immediately.
