Arturia KeyLab 61 MKII Keyboard Controller, Black
The original Arturia KeyLab made waves by giving musicians and producers in-depth command of their MIDI environment, while KeyLab Essential streamlined its functionality by giving you instant access to the features you use most often. KeyLab MkII is the best of both worlds: giving users deep control over their recording and performing environment while being streamlined, easy to master, and fun to use.
Workflow that works When you’re in the creative zone, you need music tools that encourage you.
Every aspect of KeyLab MkII has been carefully crafted to keep distractions to a minimum, and provide time-saving shortcuts that will keep your mind in the game. KeyLab MkII features three distinct modes that you can instantly switch between for insanely efficient workflow.
Analog Lab Mode It’s Analog Lab mode gives you ultimate control over this powerful included software, automatically mapping KeyLab MkII’s controls to specific functions and parameters within Analog Lab. The Category buttons let you immediately refine your search for the right sound, while the jog wheel gives you precise control over preset browsing and selection. The Live button can be used to activate Split mode and set the split point. Choose from three layers of definable controller assignments and Macros within a Multi, giving you the ultimate hands-on Analog Lab experience to bring the sound of those iconic vintage synths and keyboards to life.
DAW Mode The DAW mode quickly switches control to elements within your recording software. In this mode, the central jog wheel lets you move the playback cursor; the Next and Prev buttons let you shift focus on tracks by 1 or 8 channels at a time; the faders and knobs control the track levels and pan; and the Track Select buttons let you focus on particular tracks, letting you use the extensive DAW Commands on specific tracks.
User Mode The User mode lets you decide how KeyLab MkII works. Quickly choose one of the 10 User maps using the jog wheel, and practically every button, knob, fader, and pad on KeyLab MkII will react exactly as you choose. Using the full-featured Arturia MIDI Control Center, you’ll be able to assign any MIDI CC function you desire to any control you wish, as well as set the minimum and maximum values to make sure you’re always hitting the sweet spot. Do you use Massive, Serum, or Omnisphere? Create a map just for them! In a mixing session? Create a map to control your effects and audio busses. Mastering? Get hands on, tactile control of every sensitive parameter in your multiband compressors, EQs, and limiters. You can even use a single map to control your favorite parameters in multiple effects and instruments at once!
DAW Commands Not only does KeyLab MkII offer thorough DAW control using the industry standard Mackie HUI data language, it also features 10 presets for some of the most popular recording software titles out there. To keep your session free of guesswork, KeyLab MkII also provides you with 10 magnetic DAW overlays, so you’ll know exactly what every button does in your recording environment.
