ARTURIA KEYLAB ESSENTIAL

arturia keylab essential

Arturia has built on the KeyLab MIDI controller lineup with the KeyLab Essential range. The two new models come in 49- and 61-key versions. MCU and HUI compliance means they’re ready to integrate with your DAW. As with the original KeyLab products, it’s all about functionality and control — generously provided by way of nine faders and rotary encoders, eight RGB-backlit performance pads, pitch and mod wheels, a dual-line LCD screen to display presets, and instant mapping to Arturia’s Analog Lab software instrument. Targeted at the budget-conscious musician, KeyLab Essential provides a whole lot of expressive control without having to spend a fortune. Six fully-customisable user memories let you save settings for later recall, and there’s even a separate DAW Command Centre and transport section to save you leaving the keys to hit record. Bundled software includes Ableton Live Lite, UVI Grand Piano Model D, and of course Analog Lab 2 with over 5000 presets.
