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”. Important parameters can be quickly accessed through KeyLab MkII’s controls for intuitive live-tweaking, too! Create powerful combo sounds, split your keyboard into 2 different instruments, and explore the best sounds of 21 historic instruments.
An introduction to one of the most intuitive, popular production platforms around.
New users and seasoned pros alike love working with Ableton Live Lite. Featuring an innovative twin workflow, time stretching and pitch shifting functions, as well as numerous studio quality effects, you’ll be releasing professional quality tracks in no time. We teamed up with our friends at Ableton to make using Arturia controllers with their software easier than ever. With smart detection, you can quickly and easily take full control of Live using KeyLab MkII’s buttons, faders, knobs, and transport controls.
An essential instrument for any songwriter’s sound palette.
Letting you make full use of KeyLab MkII’s expressive keybed, Piano V is a comprehensive piano software suite that uses the power of Arturia’s Phi physical modelling to recreate legendary acoustic pianos. Put the sound of a legendary German concert grand in your tracks, or use a contemporary Japanese model to add some bite. There’s even more esoteric instruments made possible through the magic of physical modelling like glass and metal, and every instrument features full control of multiple parameters to hone the sound of your ideal instrument.
Your personal MIDI assistant
Designed from the ground up to make you the master of your MIDI environment, KeyLab MkII is one of the most flexible, adaptable, and customizable controllers ever devised.
Not only does the latest generation KeyLab let you create fully personalized User maps, it also features incredible DAW integration, letting you spend more time “in the zone” and less time switching to and from your computer screen. By using any one of the 10 User maps, you can personalize the response of practically all the buttons, knobs, faders, keys, pads, and pedal inputs on KeyLab MkII, giving you ultimate control of your DAW, effects, instruments, and outboard gear.
To cut out the guesswork, KeyLab MkII also comes with 6 magnetic overlays for the DAW Commands section, giving you at-a-glance information on what each button does in your favorite recording software.
