Arturia Keylab 61 mk2 Black

The Arturia Keylab 61 MK2 raises the bar for professional MIDI controller keyboards. Whether you're performing on stage or producing in the studio, you'll need a keyboard controller that gets the job done. Unlike many MIDI keyboards made entirely from plastic, the Keylab 61 MK2 is housed in a lightweight yet aluminum chassis. Standing up to even the most grueling of tour schedules. Featuring superb aftertouch-sensitive keys, the Keylab 61 MK2 feels incredible under your fingers. While responding beautifully when executing fast staccato lines, trills, and repetitions. Equipped with 16 RGB backlit performance pads, 9 faders, 9 rotary encoders, 4 CV outputs, and 5 expression control inputs. The Arturia Keylab 61 MK2 gives you everything you need for creating music right at your fingertips.

A complete software studio

Complete with a killer software package including Analog Lab 3 and Ableton Live Lite. So whether you're new to recording, or already boast an enviable collection of software; the Keylab 61 MK2 has something for everyone.

Your very own vintage keyboard collection.

A favourite of Arturia's line of virtual instruments, Analog Lab is a standalone title that gives you access to over 6,500 perfectly crafted presets. Enjoy the smart-mapping of the Keylab 61 MK2 as you browse through iconic sounds of 70s analog synths; classic acoustic and electric pianos; majestic organs; 80s digital synths; and even an iconic sampler and "string machine". Then, quickly access important parameters through the Keylab 61's intuitive live-tweaking. So, create powerful combo sounds, split your keyboard into 2 different instruments, and explore the best sounds from 21 historic instruments.

An introduction to one of the most intuitive, popular production platforms around.

Whether you're new to production, or a seasoned professional; producers love working with Ableton Live Lite. Featuring an innovative twin workflow, time stretching and pitch shifting functions, as well as studio-quality effects. You'll be producing professional quality tracks in no time. Teaming up with Ableton, Arturia has made sure the Keylab 61 MK2 works easier than ever. The addition of the smart detection function means you can quickly and easily take control of Ableton Live with the Keylab 61's buttons, faders, knobs, and transport controls.

An essential instrument for any songwriter’s sound palette.

Another inclusion in this software bundle is Piano V. A comprehensive piano suite that uses Arturia's physical modeling to recreate legendary acoustic pianos. Allowing you to put the sound of a legendary German concert grand in your tracks, or use a contemporary Japanese piano to add some bite. While every instrument gives you full control over multiple parameters so you can hone in on your ideal sound.
