Arturia Keylab 61 mk2 White
The Arturia Keylab 61 mk2 White has raised the bar for professional MIDI controller keyboards. Onstage or in the studio, you need a keyboard controller that gets the job done. Unlike many keyboard controllers constructed entirely of plastic, the KeyLab mkII features a lightweight yet rugged aluminum chassis that can stand up to the most grueling tour schedules.
Arturia is also a top software company, so who better to decide what goes into a keyboard designed to control software? The KeyLab mkII’s superb aftertouch-sensitive keybed (the same one used in Arturia’s flagship MatrixBrute) feels incredible under your fingers and responds beautifully when you’re executing fast staccato lines, trills, and repetitions. Equipped with 16 RGB backlit performance pads, nine large faders, nine rotary encoders, four CV outputs, five expression control inputs, and a killer software bundle headlined by Analog Lab 3, the Arturia KeyLab mkII 61 puts everything you need to create music right at your fingertips.
A complete software studio
Every KeyLab MkII owner will also be able to instantly enjoy one of the most comprehensive, inspiring, incredible value software packages available.
Whether you’re new to software recording, or already have an enviable collection of software instruments at your disposal, KeyLab MkII has something that’ll put a huge smile on your face.
Your very own vintage keyboard collection.
A favorite of Arturia’s virtual instrument line, Analog Lab is a standalone title that gives you quick access to over 6,500 beautifully crafted presets from V Collection. Enjoy KeyLab MkII’s smart mapping as your browse through iconic sounds of 70s analog synth, classic acoustic and electric pianos, majestic organs, 80s digital synths, and even an iconic sampler and “string machine”.

Create powerful combo sounds, split your keyboard into 2 different instruments, and explore the best sounds of 21 historic instruments.
