The Melodic Sequencer
BeatStep Pro features two melodic step sequencers.

You can also enter them in step mode using the touch-sensitive knobs and step buttons. Sequences can have up to 64 steps, there are 32 sequences per project and 16 projects.
The Drum Sequencer
Alongside the two monophonic melodic sequencers, BeatStep Pro also features a 16 track drum sequencer.
