  • 1Description

The Arturia KeyLab 49 Essential is a universal MIDI controller and software package that includes 49 velocity-sensitive keys, a clickable encoder, 9 additional encoders, 9 sliders, 8 touch and pressure sensitive pads, 6 transport control switches, 4 command switches, a modulation wheel, and a pitch-bend wheel. The system is designed to provide 1:1 control of the included Analog Lab 2 synth software, Ableton Live Lite, and UVI Grand Piano Model D software, as well as any MIDI controllable plug-in or DAW. It can be customized to other software using the downloadable MIDI Control Center software. What's more, the KeyLab Essential utilizes MCU and HUI protocols for its DAW command center, which offers seamless control well beyond standard MIDI, allowing you to control your DAW software on any platform. The controller is a Class-Compliant USB device, what works straight out of the box with Mac, Windows, iOS, and Android devices.

The Analog Lab software and KeyLab 49 controller are fully integrated, allowing you to control the elements of Analog Lab without having to reach for your mouse. The software includes over 6000 TAE-powered preset sounds from Arturia's award winning V Collection. With the KeyLab 49, you can navigate through presets as well as create and save your own. The keyboard can be split or layered to help create new sounds. All of the included software is compatible with all major DAWs including Pro Tools, Logic Pro X, FL Studio, Bitwig, Cubase, Ableton Live, Digital Performer, Studio One, and more. The KeyLab 49 Essential ships with a USB cable.
