Yes, that is possible, there is no template available, so you will have to assign each function from the DAW software and save the settings as a template.

Asked by: Ivan Alfredo
the legs only fit the mkII 88 key not the 61 or 49 and also will not fit the first generation 88 key keylab. the legs are sold separately and are about 249 however I've seen the keyboard and legs together for 1099 if the price is 899 then it does not come with the legs I am just a consumer but I have chatted with arturia and they are having supply issues they hope to have fixed by the end of September to mid-october 2020 I absolutely love the last generation keylab and I'm waiting myself to get the new mkII version
