I bought an Arturia Beat Step Pro a few years ago when my friend Andrew Horton decided to sell his. I had been interested in them but hadn't got around to buying one yet. So... I agreed to buy Andrew's and was excited to use it.
... then it sat on a rack next to modular gear for about a year and a half. I hardly even turned it on. Though I have a lot of equipment, I like to have uses for things. I simply had not found a use for it yet and I was wondering if I should sell it or pass it on.
... until I was rearranging some equipment and I realized that I needed some clocks to reach across the studio to another part where some mono synths were. I didn't want to run several 1/4" clock cables from various modules and devices across this space, so I took 1 sync cable to go to an MSQ-700, which is connected to sequence the Jupier-8, then the sync is daisy chained to another MSQ-700, which is connected to sequence a Juno-60, then the sync is daisy chained to the Beat Step Pro, which is distributed to clock the Sequential Pro One, CSQ-600, etc. It finally has a very useful spot in the studio!
