6 YEAR EXTENDED WARRANTY SCHEME

The product price includes 2 years' warranty and 30 day money back guarantee.

However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Warranty is extended to 6 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 180 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first 2 years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 6 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
  • If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

Creativity Reinvented

Music is at the heart of the KeyLab Essential. From the responsive velocity-sensitive keyboard to the intelligently assigned controls, you'll feel like everything just falls perfectly into place. It makes navigating your work a breeze thanks to the dedicated DAW Command Centre, and makes browsing your presets an exciting, inspiring experience. It takes away the sometimes tedious keyboard and mouse focus, and lets you spend more time creating, performing and playing.

Make Music Your Way

The KeyLab essential makes the technical side of creation as simple as possible, so you can focus on what really matters. KeyLab Essential is the result of careful research, with the aim of streamlining your creative process, giving you more time to express yourself through your creations and performances. The comprehensive set of music software included with the KeyLab Essential means the only thing you have to do is experiment. The creative workflow of the KeyLab Essential is quick and engaging, and you'll wonder how you ever got on without it.

Analog Sound Lab Software

This premium MIDI controller keyboard gives full access to Arturia's Analog Lab software; its pre-assigned controls make it an ideal solution for plug-and-play sound creation. Once the software is connected to the keyboard, you can put your mouse away and experience the same workflow as on a traditional hardware synthesizer.

With the Keylab 49 and Analog Lab software you'll discover a new depth of access to synth patches, you can now really get in and customize the huge library of internationally designed presets. A new multi-mode allows several sounds to be played simultaneously with the addition of effects, layer/split functions and a chord mode. In addition, the keyboard (like all of the Keylab series) can be easily used in any other MIDI compatible software and digital audio workstation.
