A must-have control station for your digital studio or stage setup, the Arturia KeyLab 49 USB/MIDI keyboard controller boasts 49 velocity/aftertouch-sensitive keys, and all the I/O and hands-on, expressive controls you could need for working virtual instruments into your compositions, arrangements, sound design projects, DAW tracks, and more. Best of all, this controller comes bundled with Arturia's Analog Lab software synths. Load it on your computer, and you'll have thousands of sought-after synth presets at your fingertips.
All The Controls You Need to Rock Your Software Synths
Your fingers will find their place among 49 semi-weighted velocity- and aftertouch-sensitive keys, as well as 16 backlit pads and a host of expressive controls, including clickable encoders, encoders, sliders, switches, transport switches, mod wheel, pitch bend, Octave Up/Down buttons, and so forth. A large backlit LCD display provides a detailed look at what's happening with your sounds, programming options, and mapping.
You can use the pre-mapped hardware controller as-is for easy playing right out of the box, or use MIDI Control Center software to customize your mapping layout.
Analog Lab Software: So Many Sounds to Play
Fueled by Analog Lab's incredibly detailed sounds, the KeyLab 49 is your one-stop source of easily accessible synthesizer tones. Browse 5,000 presets covering an array of Arturia Classic Synths (mini V, Modular V, CS-80V, ARP 2600 V, Prophet V, Prophet VS, SEM V and Jupiter-8V), or jump straight to the Wurlitzer V software instrument to experience the classic 200A electric piano in all its reproduced glory. If you already own any of the Arturia Classic Synthesizers, like Mini V or CS-80 V, you can edit your sounds on the original instruments within Analog Lab software.
Presets and "Multi" Patches for Every Performance
If you enjoy the process of scrolling through presets and auditioning them as you go, go right ahead, but know that you can search the TAE synthesizer-powered sounds by Instrument, Type (Bass, Pads, Leads), or Characteristics (long, bright, dark) to make your project go that much faster.
Play on the fly with over 200 Multi patches organized by genre, with each patch made up of 2 different synth patches with effects, layers, and splits. For a more custom feel, tweak your tone with the KeyLab 61's intuitive editing parameters.
