Arturia BeatStep Pro and BM3: current status
Just received my BeatStep Pro, lovely device by the way.
What works (as of 3.0.0)
So, without Focus Action bindings, data is properly forwarded to the currently selected pad in BM3, in the key range C1 -> D#2.
Since the default root key for samples is C3, this will playback ~2 octaves down. You can adjust the root key of your samples in the Edit screen > MAPPING tab:
Alternatively, you can also turn "PITCH" to OFF so the sample will be triggered regardless of the note on key.
Then, if you have setup Focus Actions for the BeatStep Pro, everything is triggered as expected, macro knobs works, etc.
Bugs (as of 3.0.0)
There is a bug where using the BeatStep Pro transport buttons will result in a unterminated SysEx message, that will then ditch all incoming MIDI data (note on, etc.). The only way to recover is to re-launch BM3.
I'll look into this a.s.a.p.
I will also write a quick article and provide a Focus Action template when 3.0.1 drops.
Thanks for all the reports! I will also try out more features the BeatStep Pro has to offer to ensure everything is working smoothly.
