Arturia has taken controller keyboards to the next level with the KeyLab mkII. Control, expressivity, ergonomics, and quality. Whether they are in studio or on stage, the KeyLab mkII 49 is the ultimate solution for demanding keyboardists.
Extremely High Build Quality
These durable master keyboards feature aluminum housing, and sports the same superb quality key-bed as Arturia's flagship MatrixBrute. The slick and elegant design of the KeyLab mkII are magnified by real dark wood side panels and the same sparkling aluminum wheels as the MiniBrute 2. Simply beautiful.
Pinnacle in Expressiveness:
The KeyLab mkII keyboards are more than MIDI controllers; they are instruments crafted with the performing musician in mind. The aftertouch will delight synthesizer players, the nine faders allows for necessary drawbar control. Perform without limits thanks to the five pedal inputs and even further performance features with the 16 highly sensitive RGB pads.
Smart Software Integration:
KeyLab mkII provides the best workflow solution to control your DAW, Analog Lab 3 or any MIDI compatible instrument. The DAW Command Center is 60% deeper than the Essential range and comes with magnetic inlays: working with the included version of Ableton Live Lite? Use the Live inlay. Now switching to Cubase? Just change to the Cubase inlay! With the same smart and efficient logic, you can now directly access the Analog Lab 3 sound categories from the controller. Need a piano sound? Press the piano button!
In addition to the full-sized MIDI in and out connectors we have spiced the KeyLab mkII with six CV/Gate connectors. This kind of connectivity is a first in this category and will extend the market to a new audience of analog musicians. Arturia has used their analog synth experience to add additional features to the world of controllers.
