Limited Edition Black Finish

Building on the success of the original Arturia Keylab Essential MIDI Keyboard design, this limited edition version features a sleek black finish. This version retains the same functionality as the original, with a black finish designed to colour coordinating your gear. The keyboard is great for use in the studio but can also be perfect for live shows, with its wide range of encoders, keys, performance pads and more.

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 61 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.
